The 23rd annual Naples Winter Wine Festival proved to be a record year with the live auction raising nearly $26 million. 

This year’s proceeds, which are collected to support at-risk and underprivileged children in Collier County, bring NWWF’s total amount raised since it began in 2001 to roughly $269 million.  

The festival was held at The Ritz-Carlton Naples, Tiburón and featured 50 wine, travel and culinary live auction lots, including five travel experiences and a 2023 Bentley Bentayga Extended Wheelbase Azure.

The festival's founding organization is the Naples Children & Education Foundation. The funds raised this year will be awarded to organizations and initiatives on March 20, 2023.
