naples wine fest 10The Naples Winter Wine Festival, one of the most prestigious and successful charity events in the U.S., returns in January of 2010 with an impressive lineup of celebrity chefs and wine vintners, as is to be expected.

Headliners include well-known TV chef Emeril Lagasse, host of "Top Chef" Tom Colicchio, and internationally-renowned restaurateur Daniel Boulud, among many others.

Each chef will present a gourmet meal for 450 guests, and pair their creations with recommendations from globally-respected wine connoisseurs. The meals are served at the home of trustees for the Naples Children & Education Foundation, a charity which receives a generous portion of the fundraising from the Festival each year.

Highlighting the Festival is a rare wine auction held on the grounds of the Naples Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, followed by a "wine-down" party to celebrate the fundraiser's success.

This is the Naples Winter Wine Festival's 10th anniversary. Since 2001, the event has raised over $74.5 million to help underprivileged and at-risk youth in Naples, Florida.

Tickets for the event, as well as a full list of headliners and activities, can be found on the Festival's official website.
