Fred Bollaci Authors “Spotlight” Feature on The American Fine Wine Invitational Annual Wine Competition and Gala in the Latest Issue of Venu Magazine; Venu Now a Media Sponsor of American Fine Wine, the #1 All-American Wine Competition in the US as it Celebrates its 10th Year with $1M to Charity!

Fred Bollaci is delighted to announce that Venu Magazine is the newest Media Sponsor of The American Fine Wine Invitational & Gala, a series of annual events, beginning with the judging in January, leading up to the Gala in April. The AFWI is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and has to date contributed nearly $1M to charity!

Fred is working with President and Co-Founder of AFWI, Shari Gherman to put together a series of dinners throughout South Florida, called “Wine and Business After Hours” in which select local restaurants are invited to host an informal networking event by providing space and hors d’oeuvres. Shari brings the wines (many outstanding bottles from this past year’s competition), and the nominal $49 admission benefits a charity chosen by the restaurant! It is a win-win for everyone, and a great way to meet other food and wine lovers, taste new wines, reward customers by offering this great experience, and get people in the door on a slower night. For more information about hosting one at your establishment, please call or e-mail Fred! 

As a Media Sponsor, Venu will be present at upcoming AFWI events! As someone who writes for Venu, and works with AFWI, Fred Bollaci is thrilled by this new strategic partnership and delighted that as a result, Venu will have an increased presence at these high profile wine and food-centric events in South Florida, and AFWI will have a great new “Venu” to spread the word about their great events!
