Every year the Naples Winter Wine Festival combines charity auctions with wine to spectacular effect. The festival offers wine auctions, intimate dinners prepared by famous chefs in private homes, a culinary showcase at the Naples Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort and over-the-top high-ticket auctions.
This year, a 2013 Maserati Quattroporte V8 and 2013 Ferrari F12berlinetta will be auctioned off. The winner of the Maserati will be the first person in the country to take possession of the redesigned, 523 horsepower super-sedan. They’ll also get the added perk of VIP access to a Maserati event such as the 2013 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The Ferrari F12berlinetta also comes with extras. The winner will head to a Ferrari driving experience in Quebec, and receive tickets for two to the 2013 Formula One Grand Prix Ferrari Challenge. Want to try your luck? A 2013 Lexus LS 460 and 2013 BMW 6-series is going to be up for raffle.
The funds go to at-risk children in Collier County through the Naples Children & Education Foundation who have received $107 million in donations from the festival since 2001. The auction will take place during the festival, which takes place January 25-27th. Tickets to the festival are available for $8,500 per couple or $20,000 for four with reserved seating together at a vinter dinner. To see all 65 auction lots, click here.
