The 8th annual “The Glory Of The Grape Wine Tasting Experience” was held Saturday night at the Marco Island Yacht Club.
In true Marco Island Area Chamber of Commerce fashion the event was a great success. Attendees were treated to samples of wines from Argentina, Chile, Oregon, Washington, Spain, South Africa, France, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, and California.
The event provides a venue for attendees to samples a variety of wines as well as interact with representatives from the distributors. All the wine sampled during the event can be purchased from The Marco Wine Seller.
The event also included a live action. Attendees had the opportunity to bid on a variety of unique auction items: A two night stay in Bonnie and Craig Woodward’s A-Frame home in Everglades City, two nights at the Marco Island Hilton Beach Resort (including Jet-skiing, parasailing or cruising on the Calusa Spirit from Marco Island Sea & Water Sports), Chamber Maids Dinner (The Marco Island Chamber of Commerce staff will come to your home and create and serve a wonderful dinner party for you and your guests), Cruise on the Ramblin’ Rose for 10, and a year of Chamber events.
All proceeds raised during the live auction are used to help keep membership dues down.
