The Captiva Civic Association (CCA) extends its heartfelt gratitude to all attendees, sponsors, and supporters for the overwhelming success of the “Perfectly Paired” wine tastings held throughout the season. The events, featuring sumptuous culinary creations by Chef Karl and Perfectly Paired wines, were met with enthusiastic attendance and sold-out crowds, making them a highlight of the social calendar on Captiva Island.

“We are thrilled by the tremendous response to our ‘Perfectly Paired’ wine tastings this season,” said Emily Ankerson, Executive Director of the CCA. “The support and enthusiasm from our community and guests have been truly remarkable, and we are grateful for the opportunity to bring people together in celebration of fine wine, delicious food, and camaraderie.”

The CCA would like to extend a special thank you to the Sanibel Captiva Trust Company for their generous sponsorship and support, which played a significant role in the success of the events. Their commitment to enhancing the cultural and social fabric of Captiva Island is deeply appreciated.

As the season comes to a close, the CCA looks forward to future collaborations and events, continuing to foster a sense of community and connection among residents and visitors alike. Plans are already underway for next season’s “Perfectly Paired” wine tastings, promising even more delightful culinary experiences and memorable moments.
