NAPLES, Fla -- WINK News got a sneak peak inside the lot room for the Naples Winter Wine Festival.
The charity wine event is now considered the most successful in the world. From wine to cars, to once in a lifetime getaways, the winter wine festival auction is a one of a kind event.
Winter Wine Festival Trustee Bob Edwards says, "this is not your typical charity auction where you go and buy something at a great discount."
There are 67 auction items or lots and they are all unique in one way or another. "If you walk around the room, there are bottles of wine you can't get anywhere in the world," said Edwards.
Thomas Riley of Naples created a custom, french art deco-inspired dry bar. Inside are more than 35 bottles of the world's most famous wines donated by Joan and Bob Clifford.
Lot 14 is a once in a lifetime private concert with grammy award winning singer LeAnn Rimes. The performance will be for 100 people and take place at a Port Royal Estate.
"My guess is we'll see somewhere between $700,000 to $1.2 million for that lot. For dinner, for one night, for one LeAnn Rimes, it's going to be fabulous," Edwards said.
It's auction items like this that are generously donated and generously bid on that helped raise $12 million dollars last year.
"They will bid two, three, four times sometimes what something is worth. It's not because they're crazy. It's not because they're foolish. It's because they're incredibly generous and they're trying to do something special," Edwards said.
Since 2001, the wine festival has raised more than $94 million. The hope is that this year, hey will exceed $100 million.
The official number will be announced Saturday evening after the auction.
