Following a successful move downtown in 2014, The Naples Grape Escape, in its eleventh year, returns to Fifth Avenue South November 14. The six-block-long, alfresco wine-focused extravaganza, presented by the Rotary Club of Naples and Fifth Avenue South Business Improvement District, features 50 premium wines, 30 craft beers, food samples by 30 Fifth Avenue restaurants, and local musicians playing all along the avenue. Other can’t-miss elements include a “wine IQ” session with local wine expert Jerry Greenfield on Sugden Plaza, a live auction, and a raffle of prizes from Fifth Avenue merchants. Proceeds from the event benefit programs of the Rotary Club of Naples Charitable Foundation.
- Ticket levels range from Black Band VIP Access ($250), to Gold Band ($100), to General Admission ($30). For more information, visit napleswine.org.
