Wine Around the Water: An Evening of Wine, Waterfront Views, & Wonderful Memories at The Village Shops on Venetian Bay! 

On Saturday evening, August 28th, the rain dissipated and crowds flooded in at The Village Shops on Venetian Bay for Wine Around The Water. The Snip Collier team, the event’s beneficiary, greeted guests with smiling faces at the registration tent, educating all on their worthy mission and sending guests on their way to enjoy a fun, wine-filled evening on the Bay!

For only $20 attendees received a pink Village Shops wine glass, passport, exclusive discounts to the restaurants, and 20+ wine samples from the participating merchants including À-TOUT-ÂGE, BU Club, Casanova Venetian Glass & Art, DanaTyler, Fabec-Young & Company, Fish Restaurant, Le Petit French Café, Lux Boutique, M Waterfront Grille, MiraMare Ristorante, Patchington, Sperry/Natural Comfort, Sukie’s Wine Shop, T-Michael’s Steak & Lobster House, The b. store, The Spice & Tea Exchange®, The Village Pub, and Whispers of Naples


From 5-7pm, The Village Shops restaurants and retailers poured glass after glass for hundreds of people as laughter and chatter continued to circulate around the Bay.

Guests followed the path of their passport, stopping several times to shop the beautiful new merchandise that filled the racks of each store and making a few purchases along the way!

As they made their rounds, attendees also stopped at the photo booth to capture a high-quality photo with their high-quality company. Unforgettable memories were captured each time the camera flashed. In addition to the pink-stemmed wine glass keepsake, guests also received a print and email copy of their photo to remember the 2021 Wine Around The Water.


The fun didn’t stop there! The adorable, adoptable dogs from Gulf Coast Humane Society of Fort Myers also came to play on the Bay! The dogs were the stars of the show as they playfully visited with crowds of people in search of a fur-ever home.

As the event came to a close, The Village Shops’ six sparkling waterfront restaurants filled. Guests took advantage of exclusive discounts on the passports and enjoyed more wine, delicious dinner, and breathtaking views.

Thank you to all who joined in the fun at Wine Around The Water and supported Snip Collier!
