The 2013 Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest officially kicked off with the signature vintner dinner at the award-winning Angelina’s Ristorante in Bonita Springs. Overlooking Napa Valley’s Stags Leap District, Husic Vineyards is the signature vintner of the fundraising event scheduled for Feb. 22 and 23 at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club. The evening included a reception hosted by wine and food trustees along with a gourmet four-course dinner, paired with Husic Vineyards’ wines, that was donated by Angelina’s Ristorante, a value of more than $5,000.
One of Lee County’s largest fundraising events to benefit local children’s charities, the primary beneficiary is The Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida.
