2016 Naples Winter Wine Festival

The Naples Winter Wine Festival is scheduled for January 29 – 31, 2016. The annual festival with a focus on charity will feature wine, food and auctions.

According to the festival website: “The Naples Winter Wine Festival is ranked among the top 10 arts and entertainment events for wealthy Americans. This ranking by the Luxury Institute is based on exclusivity, quality and prestige. Since 2004, the festival has earned the distinction of being one of the most successful charity wine auction in the nation according to Wine Spectator. The event brings many of the world’s finest vintners and chefs together with wine collectors and philanthropists for a three-day gala in picturesque Naples, Florida.”

The Naples Winter Wine Festival has successfully benefited the Naples Children & Education Foundation since 2001. Since the beginning the festival has raised $135,000,000 to help the under-privileged children of Collier County.

The festival attracts wealthy Americans who enjoy fine wines and want to help children in need. For example, the cost per couple to attend the festival is $10,000. For $25,000, two couples can attend the festival and attend a vintner dinner at an elegant home.

Numerous sponsors and corporations are partnering with Naples Wine Festival. These include: Stellar Life, Goldman Sachs, BNY Mellon Wealth Management, Fifth Third Bank, Mirador Family Wealth Advisors, Hawthorn, PNC Wealth Management, Naples Illustrated, Wells Fargo, Flemings Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar and numerous others.

The 2016 festival will feature more than 40 vintners from different areas of the world including: California, Oregon, New York, Virginia, England, Australia, Spain, France, New Zealand, Italy and Montenegro.

Such a successful endeavor needs many volunteers.  Volunteers are needed for a wide variety of positions. Although the festival takes place in late January 2016, anyone who would like to volunteer should sign up by October 31. The volunteer application is online.

The hashtag for the festival is #NWWF16.
