A Weekend of Wine at The Village Shops’ Wine Around The Water Event!

On Saturday, August 24th, the Naples forecast called for rain but The Village Shops forecast only called for wine! The rain subsided and the sun peaked out over the beautiful Venetian Bay, welcoming guests to Wine Around The Water. The word quickly spread around town and by 5pm Naples’ wine lovers and philanthropists formed lines waiting to check-in to the event.

The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples’ employees and volunteers were all smiles, checking in guests and providing more information about the event and their organization. For only $20, guests received 20+ wine samples, a pink Village Shops wine glass, passport, and exclusive discounts to the shops and restaurants.

The Village Shops restaurants and retailers provided a wide offering of red, white, and pink wines throughout the evening! In addition, the retailers showcased this season’s must have products and in no time, the shopping bags piled up on many attendees’ arms!

Fun and laughter was captured throughout the night at the photo booth. Friends, families, and couples gathered to take capture photos to commemorate a night of wonderful wine, waterfront views, and great company. Each person received a print and email copy of their photo.

As the event came to an end, our six waterfront restaurant filled. Guests took advantage of exclusive discounts and enjoyed more wine, delicious dinner, and breathtaking views.
