The Naples Winter Wine Festival (NWWF) was held in-person on Jan. 30, after a virtual iteration in 2021. Likewise, the Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest (SWFL) charity auction is back on the scene after going virtual in 2021. The organization raised $2.1 million for local pediatric health care programs. Discover the impressive lots in our coverage of both auctions.
