Like so much else in our lives, the Florida Winefest & Auction is going virtual this year, with an online auction that lets you bid on a number of unique wine packages, art, jewelry and even trips.
Festival organizers were all set to celebrate the event's 30th year last spring, but the party was called off because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Over the years, the event has raised $8.6 million for 87 charities that help local kids and families.
The online auction runs from Sunday, Oct. 10, through Sunday, Oct. 24, but those who register for the auction before Saturady, Oct. 9, will be entered to win a bottle of wine valued at $200.
Items in the auction include tons of wine; a wine refrigerator; food and wine experiences at local restaurants and with local chefs; trips to Mardi Gras, Napa Valley, Oregon and beyond; watches; jewelry; golf outings; and much more. Find a full list of auction items on the Winefest website.
