Let's start with the wine, shall we? Prepare your taste buds for a journey through vineyards from around the world. From crisp Chardonnays to robust Cabernets, there's something to please every palate. And let's not forget about the bubbly!

Whether you're craving smoked salmon on a bagel or a made-to-order omelet, you'll find it here.

Now, let's talk about the main event: the auction. Get ready to bid on an array of exclusive experiences, fine wines, and luxury items, all generously donated to support local charities. From private wine tastings to vacation getaways, there's something for everyone. And the best part? Knowing that your winning bid is making a meaningful difference in the community.

But the Florida Winefest Brunch & Auction is more than just a fundraiser. It's a celebration of Sarasota's vibrant cultural scene and the spirit of giving back.
