2022 Naples Winter Wine Festival:
We often indulge in foreign travel to take advantage of outstanding cuisine, world-class shopping and luxury amenities. Here in Naples, however, all those things are accessible and within reach—without the hassle of getting on a plane and dealing with language and cultural barriers.
The winning bidder on this lot will get to experience the best Naples has to offer in dining, clothing, jewelry and timepieces. And on top of that, your party of ten will indulge in an evening of food, wine and la dolce vita at one of our classic Italian restaurants.
In 1975, Marissa and Burt Hartington joined forces in both life and business. Starting as a small storefront, Marissa Collections has grown into a 10,000 square foot, highly curated boutique for the world’s most discerning shoppers of luxury apparel, accessories and fine jewelry. Marissa Collections stylists help clients develop their individual style through personalized service and selection. You will begin your adventure with an in-home ReVision closet edit. ReVision, launched in 2020, is Marissa Collections’ solution to sustainability by repurposing items that are no longer your favorites and rewarding you with store credit.
Then, you’ll be treated to a $20,000.00 shopping spree with a personal stylist at Marissa Collections! Visit the Jewelry Gallery, with offerings from the world’s most prestigious jewelers, from the West Coast cool of Irene Neuwirth to David Webb, Foundrae and Sidney Garber. Looking for that perfect pair of Manolo Blahnik slingbacks or that Dolce and Gabbana handbag straight from the runway? Pop into Marissa Collections and make your fashion wishes come true.
Let’s be honest: The most annoying thing about buying clothing off the rack is that it never fits just right. You’ll find your solution at élevée by Rickey, which has been clothing Presidents and private citizens since 1999. The winners will enjoy the experience of having a his and hers bespoke jacket and shirt designed exclusively for them. Either in the studio or in the comfort of their own home, they can select fabrics from all over the world, and master tailors will make a garment exclusively for them.

Amore’s dining room reflects a warm, soothing and relaxing Mediterranean atmosphere, complemented by wonderful hand–painted scenes of Italy, soft, unobtrusive music, and genuinely friendly service.
