Grape Fest in Naples

By Linda Tancs

They’re uncorking a new decade in Naples, Florida at the annual wine festival from 28 to 30 January.  This year’s honored vintner is Domaine Serene of Dayton, Oregon.  Chic eats will be available from top chefs like Lee Hefter of Spago in Beverly Hills, Michael Anthony of New York’s Gramercy Tavern, Tony Mantuano of Spiaggia in Sydney, Australia and Art Smith of Chicago’s Table Fifty-Two.  More than a gastronomical delight, the luxury event benefits the Naples Children & Education Foundation, which supports charitable programs for underprivileged and at risk children in Collier County.  Since its inception in 2001, the festival has raised more than $82.5 million for children in need.  What better reason to raise a glass.
