It’s never too late to begin planning for the future. Even as the gavel comes down on this year’s final auction lot, everyone will be wanting to repeat the excitement. This lot does all your planning in advance and reserves your spot at the 2023 Naples Winter Wine Festival, which will be better than ever!
First, you have an entire year to enjoy the best that Naples has to offer:
The winning bidder will have a one-year social membership to the exclusive Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club. Tucked away in a protected harbor beside the pristine shores of Rookery Bay, Naples’ premiere yacht club offers a boatload of amenities in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. Social members have access to waterfront dining, sporting events, educational programs and activities such as fishing lessons, boating excursions, kayaking and guided eco-tours.
You’ll have the opportunity to play a round with a club pro at Calusa Pines Golf Club, the highest-rated course in Southwest Florida and ranked in America’s Top 100 courses by Golf Digest since 2007. This private course is distinguished by dramatic elevation changes, spectacular views and the firmest, fasted Bermuda fairways and greens in Florida.
To make sure you look your very best between now and 2023, take advantage of these shopping sprees:

If you’re wondering how to get around town in style, we have the solution for you:
Ride around Naples in a 2021 Moke, a 20th-century collectible car reinvented with 21st-century green-friendly electric power. Your Moke comes equipped with a Bluetooth sound system, cushioned bench seats and sport alloy wheels. The Moke began as a British classic and became a Caribbean icon before coming to America. It has self-adjusting rack and pinion power steering, a MacPherson independent front suspension, front wheel drive—and all the appeal you could desire.
Before you know it, it will be time for the 2023 Naples Winter Wine Festival! The winning bidder on this lot will have a reserved spot for the 23rd edition of the world’s foremost wine charity event. You will start the weekend spending three nights in a Resort View Room at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples where you’ll have a front-row seat for all the Festival high points.
On Thursday evening, you’ll have access to the Grand Crew Party, where you’ll be able to hang out with many of the vintners, celebrity chefs and Master Sommeliers. Experience the emotional impact of the Festival at Friday’s Meet the Kids Day tour and luncheon, where you will meet some of the children who have been positively impacted by NCEF’s initiatives and grants; hear first-hand stories of how your generosity has transformed their lives.
Friday evening’s Vintner Dinners will be an evening like no other. A private car and chauffeur will whisk you to and from the event, where you’ll sample amazing cuisine from one of America’s top chefs, paired with wines from your favorite vintner and served by a Master Sommelier.
You’ll be front and center with preferred seating at Saturday’s Live Auction under the tent, where your bids will help ensure a better life for Collier County’s underserved children.
After another record-setting auction, spend Saturday evening relaxing at the Wine Down Party with live music and amazing food and wine. As you bring the weekend to a close with chefs, vintners, sommeliers and fellow bidders at Sunday Celebration Brunch, you’ll already be planning to rendezvous with old and new friends at next year’s Festival.
You’ll leave Naples knowing that you’ve helped provide a better future for our underprivileged and at-risk children. Since 2001, the Festival has raised nearly $220 million and helped more than 275,000 children lead more productive lives. As you plan for 2023, remember the words of renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead:
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
