The Naples Winter Wine Festival in Florida raised $18.3 million in its four-day auction event in January, maintaining its hold on the top dollar wine charity event in the nation.
However, the annual Napa Valley charity wine event isn't too shabby. It just pulled in $9.8 million for local agencies providing health care, youth services and affordable housing. The bulk of the funds were raised in the live Saturday night auction that was highlighted by a $1.1 million bid.
A Staglin Family Vineyard package of wine and a trip to Italy brought in the big bid.
