Bringing together more than 30 of the world’s highly distinguished wineries with 18 award-winning chefs, this year’s events boasted a collective 8 Michelin Stars, 15 James Beard Awards, and wines from over 8 countries and 5 continents for a series of exclusive, curated dinners. As always, proceeds from the auction went towards charities that improve the physical, emotional and educational lives of Collier County’s underprivileged and at-risk children. At the Naples Botanical Garden, the Tunnel of Love dinner was not to be missed. Hosted by Joan and Bob Clifford with Barbie and Paul Hills, the atmos- phere paired with food and drink was a Naples Winter Wine Festival highlight.
