Dream Trips And Rare Wine Country Experiences Up For Grabs Now
Southwest Florida is home to some wildly successful food and wine charity events. Regardless of the cause, food, wine, and travel are almost always big-ticket items at charity auctions. Participants go home with one-of-a-kind experiences and items, along with the satisfaction of helping a cause they care about. So for Wine Wednesday, I am sharing these dream trips and rare wine country experiences up for grabs now. They are through an event called Project Zin.
About Project Zin
The annual event is hosted by renowned Chef Charlie Palmer and winemaker Clay Mauritson who is famous for producing outstand zinfandel and more. His family has been growing grapes in Sonoma since 1868. Project Zin raises money and awareness for people with disabilities, specifically those with Down Syndrome. Mauritson’s son Brady has Down Syndrome and embodies the spirit of the event. What an inspirational kid.
Clay and his wife Carrie are well known in our local wine community. Not just because their wines are distributed in Southwest Florida. But also because of their participation in many Southwest Florida charitable events over the years. They give back so much, I wanted to share their event. Technology makes it easy to participate, even though it is taking place this weekend in Sonoma. Online bidding is open now for Southwest Floridians and the auction lots are impressive. Especially if you like food, wine and travel.
Dream Trips And Rare Wine Country Experiences
I visited Mauritson’s winery last week and got a peak at the auction lots. They hosted a cook out and opened a stellar lineup of zinfandels from some of the top producers in the region. Producers that will also be participating in this year’s event. Click here for a short, mouthwatering video. If you love unique, one-of-a-kind experiences (especially wine related) this year’s event is loaded. Click here and check out the dream trips and rare wine country experiences up for grabs now.
