About

The Developer

Vineyards Development Company has some deep and interesting roots - and they all start with tomatoes!

Antonio and Vincenza Procacci came to America in 1911. Working for just $8 a day, Antonio and his five sons saved enough money to start a family produce business in Camden, New Jersey.

They expanded to Southwest Florida when Antonio’s sons Michael and Joseph fell in love with Naples. Eventually, Procacci Brothers Sales Corporation became one of the largest wholesale produce distributors in the world. Of their tens of thousands of producing acres, they later chose the best 1,375 acres near downtown Naples to plant a community called Vineyards.

The Procacci family’s financial stability, earned through integrity, honesty and hard work, is the seed from which Vineyards has grown. Meticulous planning, design and construction have enabled Vineyards Development Corporation and its subsidiary Premier Builders Incorporated to remain debt-free. Members in the community's 25 year history, have never been assessed additional fees.

The unique builder/developer relationship between Premier Builders and Vineyards Development Corp. is the secret behind the company’s continued confidence and financial stability. It eliminates the overhead and risks most other builders incur by buying lots from another developer. As a result, buyers enjoy much greater value and reliability.

Buyers also enjoy peace of mind because Premier Builders has a vested interest in the long-term value of their home and the Vineyards community. Their quality of construction can be seen in every residence within this hallmark Naples master planned community.

The Procacci family’s continuing participation and good will in their community and Premiere Builders’ exceptional dedication to quality and design combine to ensure that Vineyards will continue to be one of Naples’ most outstanding places to live.

In addition to the Procacci Brothers, perhaps no other individual has more pride in the community - and the residential and lifestyle opportunities it provides its residents - than Michel Saadeh, the long time President and CEO of Vineyards Development Corporation. Since the very beginning, Saadeh has helped direct Vineyards to become the highly-respected, vastly-popular residential oasis it is today.
