It is with great joy that I welcome you today to the 8th Annual Wine & Run for the Roses. It is sure to be an incredible day of friendship, Run for the Roses Derby, and support for the arts. As the largest fundraising event for the Muscarelle Museum of Art Foundation, it is a reminder of the invaluable role our patrons’ generous support plays in the continued growth and accomplishments of the Museum. An event like Wine & Run for the Roses is also the perfect time to look back on our success in the past year. Our efforts have been bolstered by a significant leadership gift from Martha Wren Briggs, as well as generous commitments from Jane and Jim Kaplan, Joseph and Sharon Muscarelle, Patty and Carroll Owens, and Henry and Dixie Wolf. Many, many others have answered the call for support and for volunteer service inside the Museum. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our donors, Members, Friends and Docents, and I look forward to welcoming many more contributions in the months to come. Publicity and rave reviews for the Botticelli show once again brought national and global attention to the Muscarelle, building upon the foundation of Leonardo da Vinci in 2015, and Michelangelo: Sacred and Profane in 2013, two other shows curated by our Chief Curator, John T. Spike. For the first time, the Wall Street Journal gave a full page to one of our exhibitions, lauding our representations of “all three phases of Botticelli’s career.” Not to be outdone, the Richmond-Times Dispatch covered the show three times, culminating in a lead editorial proclaiming Botticelli, “the most excellent art exhibit ever staged in the Commonwealth.” Such kudos attracted the favorable attention of WTVR CBS 6 News. Two major art websites, Artnet and ArtDaily, brought the Muscarelle’s show to an international audience. A leitmotif of the media coverage was our Museum’s success in providing access to masterworks that had rarely, if ever, been shown in the United States. Botticelli and the Search for the Divine was the fourth major exhibition that the Muscarelle has created and shared with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, one of the five best art museums in our country. Total attendance over the Botticelli show at the Muscarelle was 111,000 and 150,000 saw this run of the show in Boston breaking their own Leonardo record! The Muscarelle continues to serve as a laboratory for experiential learning with our prestigious student internship program that prepares students for careers in museum work and nonprofit management and fosters academic pursuits in the arts. For our community, we are especially proud of our collaboration with the Greater Williamsburg Women’s Association in our kids' Summer Arts Experience. Our success is a reflection of the initiative, time, and passion of our many supporters to whom we owe many thanks. In particular, I would like to thank the members of our Events Committee, Wine Committee, Muscarelle Museum of Art Foundation Board of Trustees, and the Museum staff. Their unwavering dedication ensures the continued success of the Wine & Run for the Roses wine auction event. We look forward to seeing you again next year for more celebration and a Run for the Roses. In the meantime, we hope you will join us for the countless exhibitions, lectures, and events that your generosity makes possible. Best wishes, Aaron De Groft, Ph.D. Director & CEO Muscarelle Museum of Art Muscarelle Museum of Art Foundation

The major loan exhibition in the upstairs galleries, In the Light of Caravaggio: Dutch and Flemish Paintings from Southeastern Museums, continues the Muscarelle Museum of Art's ongoing program of research into the innovations and influence of one of the greatest artists — Michelangelo Merisi, called Caravaggio (1571-1610). The theme was inspired by the Muscarelle’s recent acquisition of significant paintings by Dirck van Baburen and Jan van Bijlert, two leading Dutch Caravaggists. The presentation of additional Dutch and Flemish paintings was made possible by the collegial cooperation of five museums in or near Virginia, who graciously lent valuable works from their permanent collections. We heartily thank these neighboring institutions: the National Gallery of Art in Washington, Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, Speed Art Museum in Louisville, and Bob Jones University Museum & Gallery in Greensboro.

In the Light of Caravaggio presents sixteen important paintings by the Dutch and Flemish Old Masters – including the young Rembrandt – who were inspired by the individualism, sensuality, deep shadows and resolute realism of the pioneering – and controversial – genius, Caravaggio.

16

The best known of the "specialized" Dutch Caravaggists were Dirck van Baburen, Gerrit van Honthorst, Hendrick ter Brugghen and Matthias Stomer. These "Utrecht realists," as they became known, traveled from Utrecht to Rome in order to study and begin their careers in the light of the Caravaggio masterpieces. Rembrandt stands out among the stay-at-home Dutch masters who learned about the latest trends from his compatriots. In Amsterdam in the early 1630s, Rembrandt painted many portraits in a homespun, almost rugged, unmistakably Caravaggesque realism. The Portrait of a Forty-Year-Old Woman, 1634 (Collection of the Speed Art Museum), is an outstanding example of this early phase in his career. The Muscarelle exhibition offers a rare opportunity for Virginia audiences to view an original Rembrandt. Among other highlights is a recognized masterpiece by ter Brugghen, who is considered the most expressive of the Dutch Caravaggists. In The Bagpipe Player, 1624, lent TOP & BACKGROUND IMAGE COURTESY: SKIP ROWLAND


by the National Gallery of Art, the strongly contrasted figure of a simple musician is portrayed with a dignity and monumentality that deeply impressed Rembrandt. The wide spectrum of the themes preferred by Caravaggio and his Netherlandish followers is on display, ranging from the profane to the sacred: from the wide expanse of a boisterous tavern by Theodoor Rombouts to the Silent Night intimacy of the Adoration of the Shepherds, c. 1625 - 1630 (North Carolina Museum of Art) in separate paintings by Matthias Stomer and Pieter Fransz De Grebber; and from the gaudy costumes of Feast of Esther, c. 1625 (North Carolina Museum of Art) by Jan Lievens, Rembrandt’s early partner, to the unashamed frankness of Adam and Eve discussing the apple by Jan van Bijlert. Ter Brugghen worked in the studio of Dirck van Baburen, another major Utrecht master. Baburen’s Narcissus, recently acquired by the Muscarelle, is a vivid and amusing example of the Caravaggesque tendency to stage the classical myths in contemporary dress. In his Narcissus of c. 1621 - 1622, the mythological hunter who fell in love with his own reflection has the brawny features of a Dutch youth.

In the Light of Caravaggio is dedicated to the memory of Walter Liedtke, the world-renowned scholar and Curator of Dutch and Flemish art European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, who died in 2015. The Muscarelle exhibition also acknowledges the authoritative and pioneering exhibition, brilliantly curated by Dennis P. Weller, Sinners & Saints, Darkness & Light: Caravaggio and His Dutch and Flemish Followers (North Carolina Museum of Art) in 1998. Dr. Weller gave a free public lecture on this theme on February 15, 2018, as part of the Third Thursday Lecture Series at the Muscarelle.

A VIRGINIA NORTON WINE WAS EVEN NAMED “BEST RED WINE OF ALL NATIONS” AT THE VIENNA WORLD’S FAIR IN 1873, AND WAS AWARDED A GOLD MEDAL AT THE PARIS WORLD’S FAIR OF 1889 — THE YEAR THE EIFFEL TOWER WAS CONSTRUCTED. Virginians have made wine for more than four centuries. The Jamestown settlers had hoped that Virginia would become a major source of wine for the British Empire. They signed a law that required each male settler to plant and tend at least 10 grape vines. Little came of this because every effort to grow vinifera, or vines of European origin, met with failure from an unknown pest, Phylloxera, as well as disease due to the new environment. The booming tobacco trade soon diluted British interest in the possibilities of American wine, and the American settlers themselves lost interest. While fine wine could be had only from European suppliers, whiskey, beer and brandy were plentiful.

Prohibition promptly brought wine production to a standstill. The industry was slow to bounce back. Some 17 years after Prohibition’s repeal, Virginia still had only 15 acres of commercial wine grapes.

In hopes of one day realizing the promise of fine Virginia wines, Thomas Jefferson cultivated European grapes for more than 30 years. His Monticello vineyards, however, never produced a single bottle of wine. He wasn’t alone in trying. After 11 years of efforts at Mount Vernon, George Washington, too, had nothing to show for his work. In the 1820s, wines made from Native American grapes met with great success. Also, the late 1800s discovery that native and European vines could be grafted gave Virginia’s nascent wine industry a lift. In the early 20th century,

He established Barboursville Vineyards and helped other vinters do the same. By 1995 Virginia had 46 wineries, by 2005, 107. At over 250 wineries and counting, today only California, New York, Oregon and Washington have more wineries than Virginia. The persistence of generations of winemakers is paying off, and the vision of one of Virginia’s most renowned native sons, Thomas Jefferson, is now coming true. virginiawine.org

In the late-1950s experimental planting of vinifera showed promise. With the establishment of six new wineries in the 1970s, the recovery was officially underway. A renewed effort to grow an European Chardonnay succeeded at the Waverly Estate in Middleburg in 1973. Then in 1976, Italian pioneer vintner Gianni Zonin hired Gabriele Rausse to grow and harvest vinifera grapes near Charlottesville.

23


Barboursville is a magnificent and historic estate located between Monticello and Montpelier. It is home to Virginia’s most honored winery, founded in 1976 by the Zonin Family, who have been prominent in Italian viticulture since 1821. Defying the unanimous advice of many people to plant tobacco at Barboursville, Gianni Zonin — heir to a family wine enterprise in the Veneto — acquired Barboursville plantation with the seemingly ridiculous expectation of creating a vineyard. Jefferson had attempted this, persisting into the 19th Century at Monticello, always failing to achieve a single harvest. He would be pleased that wine is being produced at his neighboring plantation, home to a dear friend and for whom he designed the historic mansion. Because of Gianni Zonin and Luca Pachina, the resident winemaker since 1990, Barboursville has been drawn totally into the wine world’s embrace, and inspired hundreds to follow their example. Celebrating the winery’s 40th anniversary in 2016, they continue to set the standard for Virginia now populated with more than 250 wineries. Barboursville produces Octagon, the most renowned red wine of Virginia. bbvwine.com

The Shenandoah Valley is rapidly becoming a popular spot to grow grapes. Bluestone Vineyard is located in the center of this beautiful valley, named after the “bluestone” (a type of limestone) that is a main component within the local soil. The vineyard is located on the ground that once was part of a well-known dairy farm. Parts of the hill were too steep for traditional farming but worked well for grapes. The soil is rocky, providing excellent growing conditions for the grapes, especially the cabernets. In 2003, the Hartmans, owners of Bluestone Vineyard, and their friends the Kreiders (Misty Ray Winery) began planting grapes to make wine for personal use. In 2007, they decided to make the vineyard a business and with advice from the researchers at Virginia Tech, they laid out the vineyard, tested the soils, and chose the grapes to plant. In 2010, the winery was built. That year they processed 31 tons of grapes and made about 2000 cases of wine. Today’s production is about 5,000 cases. Michael Shaps is a consultant for their wine making. bluestonevineyard.com

The land at Chatham, which overlooks Church Creek, was patented in 1640. The Federal-period brick house, Chatham, was built in 1818. The historic outbuildings, barns and two early 1900s homes on the property have been renovated in recent years. Chatham Farm has been a working farm for four centuries. Since 1999 more than 20 acres of high-density (1,740 vines per acre) French vinifera varietals have been planted. They are Merlot, Chardonnay and California Cabernet Franc rootstock, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The vineyards are cane pruned during the winter months to balance the vines and limit yields to less than four tons per acre thereby concentrating wine flavors. The grapes are handpicked and sorted before pressing to ensure the highest quality of the juice. Grapes not vinified at the winery are sold to other wineries in Virginia.  The winery was constructed in 2005 and currently has a production capacity of 3,000 to 5,000 cases annually. Temperature in the winery is maintained at 50 degrees year round. A retail tasting room is located in the winery.  chathamvineyards.net

Opening in 1980, under the direction of Doug Flemer, Ingleside Vineyards is one of Virginia’s oldest and largest wineries and produces over 18 types of wine from its estate-grown grapes. For over 35 years, the hand-crafted wines have won numerous awards and top honors in state, national and international wine competitions. Since 1890 the Flemer family has owned and operated this historic estate. Ingleside is proud to be one of the pioneers of the modern wine industry in Virginia. They were the first winery in Virginia to bottle a varietal Petit Verdot, now one of their flagship wines. Today they continue to explore unique grape varieties in Virginia, finding success in recent years with several Italian and Spanish grape varietals, including Albariño, Pinot Grigio and Sangiovese. Their unspoiled and unpretentious surroundings offer an atmosphere of relaxation; the perfect getaway from the hectic life of the city. They invite you to experience their exceptional wines and indulge yourself in the rich history and beauty of Virginia’s Northern Neck region! inglesidevineyards.com

King Family Vineyards is a family-owned and operated boutique winery located in Crozet, just 15 minutes from Charlottesville. The 327-acre farm was purchased by Ellen & David King in 1996. In 1998 they planted their first vines. Sitting at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the vineyard is located at 800 feet of elevation, which helps keep the grapes cool in the summer and warm in the winter. All leaf pulling, pruning, canopy maintenance, green harvesting, and harvesting in the vineyard throughout the year is tended by hand. King Family prides itself on utilizing the best management practices to avoid soil degradation. The 2000 vintage was the first with just a few hundred cases. In 2002 the winery and tasting room building were completed and opened to the public in the fall. Today the winery produces just over 10,000 cases per year. All of the fruit comes from the Monticello American Viticulture Area (AVA), with about 88% of the grapes coming directly from the King Family’s 20 acres of vines. kingfamilyvineyards.com

Located in the beautiful foothills of eastern Fauquier County, VA, conveniently close to Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, the cellars were established in 1976 and purchased by Chris Pearmund in 1993 (with his first vintage in 2002). The estate has been an active farm since the mid-1700s. Their 7,500-square-foot geothermal winery and vineyard produce Chardonnay, Viognier, Riesling, Late Harvest Vidal, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Ameritage, and other award-winning Virginia wines. The vineyard originally hosted nine different grape varieties. Today Pearmund sticks to Chardonnay on the property as they are the most successful grapes to grow with respect to the terroir. At the estate, the oldest Chardonnay vines in Virginia are planted, while the rest of the grapes are sourced from various parts of the Commonwealth. They have 15 acres and 11,000 vines of Chardonnay. The vineyard is managed with as little intrusion as possible and the estate operates in a largely holistic, earth-conscious manner. They produce about 7,000 cases annually with an almost equal split between red and white. pearmundcellars.com

Thibaut-Janisson was born from a long friendship that began in a Grand Cru village in the Champagne region of France. Thibaut and his friend Manuel Janisson, both from champagne-producing families in the town, started in the family businesses at a young age. When Thibaut came to work in California in 1983, he had already spent a few years working in Australia. Thibaut arranged for Janisson to come work with him in California and the two young men began talking of one day producing a sparkling wine together. About 25 years later, they agreed that Virginia would be the place to do it. Thibaut came to Charlottesville in 2003 to consult at Kluge Estate Winery. In 2005 after seeing the potential for Virginia sparkling wine, Thibaut and Janisson began their joint venture and in 2007 they had the first release of their nonvintage Blanc de Chardonnay.

A passion for fine wine and sustainable working lands drove Tayloe and Suzy Dameron to open Upper Shirley Vineyards, a state-of-the-art winery in the cradle of American history. The vineyards are nestled alongside the gently flowing James River with breathtaking views of the Presquile National Wildlife Refuge, a 1,329-acre island bird sanctuary. Upper Shirley Vineyards welcomes guests to its beautiful 14,000-square-foot Low Country winery to taste its wines, enjoy Chef Carlisle Bannister’s fine Southern cooking and celebrate life in the warm embrace of Tidewater Virginia. At Upper Shirley Vineyards, they think of a great wine grape as a balance between complex flavors, sugars, acids and more. They believe they stand the best chance of finding that elusive balance with their intentional lack of mechanization and by nurturing each individual vine, one at a time, as often as six times a year, all 12,000 of them. Established in 2013, Upper Shirley Vineyards has 19 acres under vine consisting of merlot, petit verdot, tannat and viognier, with plans to expand. They diligently selected varieties of European vitis vinifera grapes to match their terroir. uppershirley.com

At The Virginia Beer Company, they feature 16 draft selections in the taproom, with at least eight of them rotating on a regular basis. Their plan is for a new beer each week; they want to give their customers a reason to return! A seasonal rotation, a New World-style Saison series, a variety of cask offerings, and experimental beers from their pilot system will complement their four year-round offerings. They have essentially built a brewery within a brewery. They have a large-scale, 30-bbl production brewing system in addition to a smaller-scale, 5-bbl pilot system that allows them to promote creativity and experimentation on a regular basis. They're now rounded out by an amazing array of full-time and part-time staff along with members of the local community who have helped turn 401 Second Street into the amazing brewery + taproom + beer garden they dreamt of building many years ago. They look forward to sharing beers & cheers with you! virginiabeerco.com

Tom and Mary Ellen Power opened the first Cheese Shop in 1971 in Newport News. In 1973 they opened the second Cheese Shop on Prince George Street in Williamsburg. In 2003, Tom and Mary Ellen and their three adult children relocated one block to Duke of Gloucester Street. The enlarged business includes the cheese shop, wine cellar, and a fine dining restaurant, Fat Canary. The success and popularity of their family's business is due to their loyal customers, excellent purveyors and their staff. All told they've had thousands of employees in their nearly five decades of business. The present and past employees are an integral part of their success story and they are their extended family. They’ve been promoting great cheeses from all over the world since 1971. The heart of the business is the cheese counter and they're particularly proud of the hand-crafted cheeses from hardworking, artisan cheese makers from the United States and Europe. Let us create a cheese plate for you to savor on the front patio, with a glass of wine or a craft beer. We can also help you with selecting cheeses, for a gift box and we'll ship for you. cheeseshopwilliamsburg.com

In Memory of THOMAS PIERCE POWER | 1935 -2017

Mr. Tom was involved, as was the entire Power family, since day-one of the Wine & Run for the Roses Wine Auction event. Tom Power is an icon in our community and his personal support of the W&RFTR was not only crucial, but absolutely necessary. We miss him very much and we wanted to take this occasion this year to give our heart-felt thanks to Mr. Tom and the Power family for all they have done to make our event the major success it has become over its eight years. Thank you so much.

“Power takes many forms. Forceful. Political. Formal. But none has had more of a tasteful impact locally than that embodied by Tom Power Sr., the gracious entrepreneur who died last June while ocean swimming in Bermuda, his favorite exercise in a favorite vacation spot. Nearly half a century ago at a shop in Newport News, he and his beloved wife, Mary Ellen, introduced cutting-edge gourmet sandwiches and imported specialties to the Wonder Bread world of Tidewater. They opened another store in 1973 on Williamsburg’s Prince George Street, moving it after three decades to nearby Merchants Square where it’s now The Cheese Shop and Fat Canary, a renowned New American restaurant. (They also were part owners of The Trellis from 1980 to 1994.) Their three children—Mary Ellen Jr., Cathy and Tom Jr.—run the family business today. “It’s like our home,” says Mary Ellen Jr. In fact, it’s a powerhouse, noted for elevating the colonial capital’s cuisine in such as The New York Times. Their parents’ unbreakable partnership was the foundation for success, the kids agree; their mom, merchandising and bookkeeping, their dad, a manager obsessively sweating the details. “They were always here together,” recalls an employee, “treating everyone respectfully.” At 81, Power still kicked off the day at staff lineup with sage words, his courtly presence prompting everyone’s A game: shirt tails tucked in, purposeful. While publicly supporting organizations including Child Development Resources and Williamsburg Community Foundation, he quietly provided a boost—financial, inspirational—to many needing a leg up. He was athletic and competitive (unsurprising, considering the Granby grad was the youngest of four boys) and an avid traveler, savoring new foods and wines to discern trends. His family made a game of his seemingly photographic gastronomic memory with quizzes like: “What did you have for dinner the first night you and Mom were honeymooning in Bermuda?” Instantly he’d reply, “It was the first time I ever had quiche Lorraine.” Power relished meals as a force to bring people together; a catalyst for ideas, conversation, love. After taking a bite of practically anything, he’d jubilantly proclaim: “That’s the best I’ve ever tasted!” Business was his passion, a joy for him every day, says his family. It’s a joy they continue sharing with others. A powerful legacy.”   Mary Ellen and Tom Power, owners of The Cheese Shop and Fat Canary, received the 2017 Prentis Award from The College of William & Mary on May 16, 2017. The Prentis Award is given each year to recognize an individual or couple in the Williamsburg community for their strong civic involvement and support of the W&M.

2012 Guigal Condrieu La Doriane RP 97 “The 2012 Condrieu la Doriane is much more open and flamboyant than the tighter, slightly closed 2013 and offers full-bodied notes of quince, orange blossom, white peach and exotic flowers. This is a classic Condrieu that offers everything you could want, and it's drinking perfectly today. Drink 2014-2020.” “Condrieu is arguably the northern Rhone's most distinctive wine appellation. It covers white wines made exclusively from Viognier, while its larger neighbors (Saint-Joseph, CrozesHermitage and Cote Rotie) specialize in robust reds made from Syrah. Condrieu's whites, which strike an unusual balance between delicate perfume and substantial body, are produced only in tiny quantities, and only in seven parishes – Limony, Chavanay, Malleval, Saint-Michelsur-Rhone, Saint-Pierre-de-Bœuf, Verin and Condrieu itself – in the nine-mile stretch of the Rhone Valley that makes up the official Condrieu viticultural area.” Sponsored by:

Loads of spices, candied cherries, stones, juniper berries, and plums can be found in its deep, satin-textured character. It is exceptionally long and possesses loads of prodigiously ripened tannin.” 1999 Michel Magnien Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru RP 96 “The stunning 1999 Clos St.-Denis has a dark ruby, almost black, saturated color. Leather, licorice, and blackberry syrup can be found in its boisterous aromatics. This full-bodied, chewy-textured wine has a magnificent breadth of black fruits, cherries, blueberries, and spices in its dense character. It is satintextured, thick, powerful, and seamless.” 1999 Frederic Magnien Bonnes Mares Grand Cru RP 95 “Magnificent, the dark ruby-colored 1999 Bonnes Mares has blackberry syrup and cassis liqueur aromas. Medium to full-bodied and crammed with freshly laid asphalt, blackberries, Asian spices, licorice, and cassis, it is a huge, chewy-textured wine whose flavors are seemingly unending.

BORDEAUX SAMPLER INCLUDES: 9 bottles, as noted (1500ml, 750ml)

Bordeaux is the most famous and highly coveted wine blend in the world. While there are both red and white Bordeauxs, the name Bordeaux is primarily associated with the red wine blend. Red Bordeaux is a red wine that is always made from blending Cabernet Sauvignon wine and Merlot wine together, though the proportion of each depends on the location of the winery that made the wine. In the Bordeaux region of France, where the wine is made, the Gironde estuary cuts through the center of the region creating two banks: a Left Bank and a Right Bank. It is a winery’s location on either bank that determines the proportion of Merlot to Cabernet inside each wine. If the winery is located on the Left Bank, the blend created will have more Cabernet Sauvignon than Merlot. If the winery is instead located on the Right Bank of the river, the wine will have more Merlot in the blend than Cabernet Sauvignon. This determination also allows us to make a few generalizations about the wine depending on the bank on which it was created. Here are the general rules: Left Bank blends tend to be higher in tannins, alcohol and acidity. They are powerful, rich wines that are said to age a bit better than wines from the Right Bank. This is also the bank that made the region famous. Right Bank blends tend to be softer, less tannic and lower in alcohol and acidity. Because Merlot is the dominant grape, they are much more juicy and usually ready to be drunk much earlier than Left Bank Bordeauxs, and they’re often less expensive. 2005 Chateau Lafon-Rochet, Saint-Estephe (1500ml) RP 91 2005 Chateau Beychevelle, Saint-Julien (1500ml) RP 93 2000 Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion, Pessac-Leogann (1500ml) WS 91 1996 Chateau Lafon-Rochet, Saint-Estephe (1500ml) RP 91 1996 Chateau Smith-Haut-Lafitte, Pessac-Leogann (2 bottles, 750ml) RP 91 1998 Chateau Pavie Macquin, Saint-Emilion (750ml) RP 95 1995 Chateau La Tertre Roteboeuf, Saint-Emilion (750ml) RP 95 1996 Chateau La Tertre Roteboeuf, Saint-Emilion (750ml) RP 90 Donated by: Clement M.

“Clavaillon, more often written as Clavoillon, is a Premier Cru vineyard in Puligny-Montrachet, a village at the southern end of the Cote d'Or escarpment in Burgundy. Located on the bottom slopes of said escarpment, Clavaillon is planted to the Chardonnay grape variety that grows so well in this part of the region. The white wines made here are elegant with rich flavors of citrus peel and nuts, finishing with focused, chalky minerality.” “The 2015 opens in the glass with a pretty bouquet of fresh pear, citrus zest, orange blossom and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is bright, energetic and pure with good depth and a tangy, penetrating finish. While the race is close today, the Clavoillon is holding more in reserve than the domaine's excellent Puligny Village, and its acids are brighter, so this will reward a bit of patience.

GAJA - ITALY’S FINEST INCLUDES: 6 bottles, 1 each (750ml)

“Plain and simple, Angelo Gaja is the biggest name in Italian wine. The Gaja winery was founded by Giovanni Gaja in 1859 and has been owned and operated by four generations of the Gaja family, with Angelo Gaja running the operation since the 1960s. Angelo is credited with modernizing Barbaresco and Barolo wines, having pioneered the use of controlled-temperature fermentation (for reducing oxidation) and small-cask aging (to stabilize color and preserve fruitiness). Gaja is most well-known for his Barbarescos, though the three most sought-after wines, Costa Russi, Sori Tildin and Sori San Lorenzo have recently been reclassified from Barbaresco DOCG to Langhe DOC, giving Gaja more flexibility in the winemaking process. Strikingly profound and built to live for decades, Gaja's wines display opulence and elegance unmatched elsewhere in Italy. These wines, while harnessing modern technology, have a longestablished track record, ensuring they will perform well both in the glass and on the auction block. For any collector considering Italian wines, Gaja should be the first name on the list.” 2009 Gaja Barbaresco Sori San Lorenzo RP 96 2008 Gaja Barbaresco Costa Russi RP 94 2008 Brunello Runnina RP 93 “This is a stunning set of wines from Angelo Gaja and his team in Barbaresco.

GRACE FAMILY VINEYARDS ETCHED DOUBLE MAGNUMS

INCLUDES: 2 bottles, 1 each (3000ml) Equivalent to 8 regular bottles!

“This wine is only available via the winery's mailing list, and I am sure there are more potential suitors than wine to be sold. Current production has dwindled, largely because much of the vineyard is in the process of being replanted due to the phylloxera scourge. For example, in 1995 only the upper block of the vineyard was in production. Only 75 cases will emerge from this vintage, further ensuring a preposterously high price. In 1994 there were 175 cases. These beautifully made wines are among the finest Cabernets in California. I rarely report on them because they are, for all intents and purposes, unobtainable. Yet there is no doubting the high quality aspirations of the owner, and the skills exhibited by winemaking consultant Heidi Barrett in the production, aging, and bottling of these 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wines.” 1993 Grace Family Vineyards Cabernet RP 91 “The 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon is a top-flight example of this high class vintage. Deep purple-colored, with well-integrated, spicy, toasty oak competing with gobs of sweet blackcurrant fruit and spice, this full-bodied, well-endowed, concentrated Cabernet is powerful yet well-balanced. It needs another two-three years of cellaring to resolve some tannin, but it will easily last 15-20 years. These limited production gems certainly merit the hyperbole and accolades they receive.” 1994 Grace Family Vineyards Cabernet RP 94 “The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon is the last wine made from the original vineyard plantings. The opaque purple color is accompanied by an explosive bouquet of blackcurrants and cherries, intermingled with toasty, new oak. Full-bodied, with a lead pencil, cedary, cassis-like characteristic not dissimilar from a high class Pauillac, this tightly-knit yet formidablyendowed Cabernet Sauvignon should last for 20-25 years.” Donated by: Dick and Ann Grace, Grace Family Vineyards

LEGENDS FROM THE ATIYEH CELLAR INCLUDES: 2 bottles, 1 each (750ml)

With wines such as these, scores have no meaning. If you know and love Bordeaux, nothing more needs to be said. 1995 Chateau Lafleur RP 96 “I have tasted the Château Lafleur 1995 twice and it is rapidly becoming my favorite wine of that decade, vying with the 1998. This is now reaching its plateau of maturity after 20 years, though it will remain there for many years. It has a sensual bouquet with wonderful definition: blackberry, bacon fat, hot gravel scents abound and then after 30-40 minutes a sprig of wild mint. Mercurial and captivating—that's a great Lafleur on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. There is unquestionably immense depth here with tertiary black fruit, smoke and black truffle before fanning out in confident fashion on the finish. This is just a superb Lafleur with a long and prosperous life ahead. Tasted February 2015. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2040.” 1990 Chateau La Mission Haut Brion RP 97, JCL 99 “The 1990 La Mission Haut Brion is a wine that just gives so much pleasure that it seems almost immoral to criticize. It has such an engaging, quintessential La Mission bouquet full of warm gravel, chestnut, morels and bay leaf scents that you just fall instantly under its charms. It seems to just grow in the glass. The palate is beautifully balanced with great depth but is still a little grainy in texture, and I noticed how it evolved almost a Musigny-like personality with time in the glass. Tasted May 2017. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2037.” Donated by: Drs. Rony and Melissa Atiyeh

OLD WORLD VS NEW WORLD

INCLUDES: 12 bottles, 6 each (750ml)

2012 Chateau Pape-Clement RP 97 “Château Pape Clément is one of the oldest Grands Crus of Bordeaux. His vineyard - the first harvests took place in 1252 - was implemented in the XII century by Bertrand de Goth, younger of a noble family from Bordeaux region. Archbishop of Bordeaux, Bertrand de Got became Pope in 1305 under the name of Clement V. This is where the Château inherited its name from and its wine became an icon.” “The iconic 2012 Pape Clement is a candidate for near-perfection as well as one of the wines of the vintage. From proprietor Bernard Magrez, this is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. This extraordinary vineyard (a few miles to the west of Haut Brion and La Mission Haut Brion) has hit all the highlights of this vintage. This is truly great wine and not far off their magnificent 2005 and 2010. Full-bodied, with rich cassis, subtle burning embers and spice followed by velvety, well-integrated tannins, the wine is lush, expansive, savory and profound. This is a remarkable wine that could be drunk at a reasonably young age, but should cellar brilliantly for a quarter-century. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2040.” 2009 Ridge Monte Bello RP 98 “The 2009 Monte Bello ,72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot is simply magnificent. Layers of dark red fruit, flowers, spices and graphite are all woven together in this utterly impeccable wine. The 2009 is an especially huge, intense Monte Bello, yet a sexy, silky core of fruit lies within its imposing frame. Everything comes together in this glorious, radiant wine. Last year the 2009 had some pretty stiff competition from the 2010, but today it is simply firing on all cylinders. Eric Baugher describes 2009 as a year with cold weather early on, followed by heat in early June and July. There is a purity and silkiness supported by structure in the 2009 that is impossible not to admire. Simply put, this is another utterly magnificent, towering masterpiece from Ridge. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2049.” Sponsored by:

ATTENTION WILLIAM & MARY ALUMNI HORSEPOWER “THE TRIBE” SYRAH IN BRANDED WOODEN CASES! INCLUDES: 6 bottles, 3 each in OWC (750ml)

A Tribe-like Tradition: Tradition isn’t an abstract concept to Christopher Baron, founder of both Cayuse Vineyards and Horsepower Vineyards - he was born into it. The oldest son of the centuries-old Champagne house, Baron Albert, his family has worked their land in the Marne Valley of France since 1677. As recently as 1957 horses still did all the vineyard cultivation. Horsepower represents a return to that time, to a simplicity of craftsmanship and purpose that has been largely lost in the modern translation. It’s a window to the Old World - right here in the new. Horsepower Vineyards “The Tribe” Vineyard Syrah 2013 WA 96 “Just ever so slightly richer and more textured than the Sur Echalas Vineyard, the 2013 Syrah The Tribe Vineyard is a blockbuster effort that is up there with the crème de la crème of the vintage. Concentrated, full-bodied, sexy and layered on the palate, it has to-die-for notes of black cherries, currants, olives, steak tartare and Hermitage-like scorched earth characteristics. Like the other 2013s here, it needs four-five years of cellaring and will have two decades of longevity.” Horsepower Vineyards “The Tribe” Vineyard Syrah 2014 WA 96 “From a site that's next to En Chamberlin that's planted with a 4x4 spacing (the Sur Echalas is 3x3), the 2014 Syrah The Tribe Vineyard offers more fruit (blackberry, black cherry) as well as beautiful notes of violets, rose petal, pepper and earth. Fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged in neutral puncheons, this fullbodied beauty has fine tannin, juicy acidity and a great finish. It's in direct contrast to the more masculine, meaty, umami style of the Sur Echalas Vineyard. Give it two-three years and it too will be long lived!” Donated by: Dr. Edward and Mrs. Stephanie Oldfield, III TOP IMAGE COURTESY: SEATTLENET.COM BOTTOM IMAGE COURTESY: THEEXPLORATORYKITCHEN.WORDPRESS.COM

This extraordinary Hermitage has more minerality and delineation than the 2009, as well as overflowing aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, jammy blackberries, violets, graphite and wood smoke. Massively concentrated, full-bodied, decadent, layered and sexy, it needs short-term cellaring but should be just about immortal in the cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2060.” 2010 Chateau Pontet-Canet, Pauillac, France RP 100 “An absolutely amazing wine, this blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot has close to 15% natural alcohol. It comes from one of the few biodynamic vineyards in Bordeaux. An astounding, compelling wine with the classic Pauillac nose more often associated with its cross-street neighbor, Mouton-Rothschild, creme de cassis, there are also some violets and other assorted floral notes. The wine has off-the-charts massiveness and intensity but never comes across as heavy, overbearing or astringent. The freshness, laser-like precision, and full-bodied, massive richness and extract are simply remarkable to behold and experience. This is a 50- to 75-year wine from one of the half-dozen or so most compulsive and obsessive proprietors in all of Bordeaux.” 2010 Casonova di Neri Tenuta Nuova, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Italy RP 100 “This is a gorgeous wine. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova is just as impressive now as when I first tasted it three years ago. The only edit I would make to my original 100-point review is an extension to the drinking window. The bouquet is absolutely seamless, yet it shows pencil-point precision with dark fruit that flows into spice, tobacco and crushed mineral. The wine's aromatic intensity is forthright and compelling, as is the polished and fine nature of the mouthfeel. This is a cellar keeper. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2045.” Donated by: Cindy and Tom Gillman

CULTURA L A RTS EXPER I EN C E : D O O RWAYS, TH R ES H O L DS, &

When the moment comes today, please raise your paddle high in support of this extraordinary program!

The program, in its sixth year, was conceived by the members of the GWWA, and found an enthusiastic partner in the Muscarelle.

The Children’s Cultural Arts Experience, held on the campus of the College of William & Mary, is a weeklong program sponsored by the Muscarelle Museum of Art and the Greater Williamsburg Women’s Association (GWWA) that enhances middle school students’ understanding and appreciation of African American art and cultural heritage. By raising your paddle at today’s auction, you will join together in entirely funding this unique, essential arts experience. Specifically, you will provide this enriching, essential experience to these children by underwriting their tuition, art supplies, craft materials, program meals, and faculty – elements without which there would simply be no Cultural Arts Experience. From its pool of applicants, the GWWA carefully selects 30 middle school students. Those chosen receive classes in painting, drawing, dance, poetry, literature and theatre – classes that allow these children to discover and explore their individual creativity – and, in the process, to build teamwork skills, communication skills, and self-esteem. Utilizing local area artists as instructors, the program allows students to be mentored by accomplished community members as they grow and discover the world and themselves through the exploration of art. Last year, students celebrated diversity in action and focused on the theme of Hidden Figures. Through the Cultural Arts Experience, students and their parents are drawn into the Muscarelle’s world-class art collection and gallery spaces. Parents, who play a significant role in the program, share with us that the experience fosters in their children a confidence, curiosity, and creativity that carries well beyond the summer and into their school, social, and community lives. In short, thanks to the GWWA, the Muscarelle Museum, and your financial support, young lives are uplifted through art and self-expression!

Advance Provisioning Allowance (commonly referred to as APA) It is important for guests to be aware of the Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA). The APA was designed to enable charterers to manage their expenses through a clear and trackable arrangement. An APA is a way to deposit the estimated expense amount of your charter to cover costs such as fuel, food and dockage fees. Typically, the APA runs $15,000 to $20,000 for the week and is to be paid approximately one month prior to boarding the charter yacht and is paid directly to the Captain of the yacht. Once the APA has been paid to the captain it will then be retained as a bank account of sorts, from which the captain can make expenditures whilst keeping a record of what has been spent. At any point during the yacht charter guests can request a rundown of accounts from the captain as a way of keeping track of expenditures. It is important to remember that food and fuel, for example, are charged at cost without markup to the charterer and upon disembarking, transactions can be reviewed by the "head" charterer and Captain with any remaining funds to be paid back to the charterer. Fuel and Dockage Fees It is important to remember that whilst considering fuel costs, the fuel consumed when using jet-skis and tenders will also apply to the charterer. In addition, whilst docked at a marina the generators used in order to produce electricity will also use fuel. The distance travelled and speed of cruising also affects fuel costs and it is important to bear these factors in mind. Dockage fees may vary from very little to large sums and this is dependent again upon the location and whether you wish to dock during a special event such as the Monaco Grand Prix. Donated by: Gail and Ron Gilden

Sixty days' notice is preferred to book the week and is based on availability. Booking will be handled directly by the owners. Week is available in the Mediterranean during June or September of 2018.

Bidding will start at $500 Per Guest. If we have more than 15 interested couples then we will raise the bidding until we have just 30 guests. If you wish to secure your seat raise your paddle and on the other hand how many seats you would like. The original land grant for White Hall on the Ware River in Gloucester County was given by King William & Queen Mary to Francis Willis in 1690. Several prominent families have lived at White Hall, including the Byrd Family. Over the centuries the property has been depleted, and the Banks now have over 100 acres that are reached by a long, curving drive lined with mature cedars. They have lived at White Hall for the last 30 years, adding wings in the early 90’s to the main structure. The Party Barn was built in 2007 as a Virginia version of the Napa Valley Reserve hospitality room, and has hosted many wonderful celebrations and charity events. Their home and barn sit on the Ware River, and the southeastern exposure affords both beautiful sun and moon rises.

Beautiful sweetness of fruit is present in this medium-bodied, tightly-knit, but gloriously pure, welldelineated Lafite.

Fleshy, ripe, and mouth-filling, with low acidity, soft tannin, and admirable concentration and length, this delicious Pauillac will be drinkable in two-three years, and should age for 15+. It is an impressive effort for this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2022." Donated by: Cindy and Sam McGann

DECADENCE IN A BOTTLE - D’YQUEM INCLUDES: 3 bottles, 1 each as noted (750ml & 1500ml)

“Château d'Yquem is a Premier Cru Supérieur (“Superior First Growth") wine from the Sauternes, Gironde region in the southern part of the Bordeaux vineyards known as Graves. In the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, Château d'Yquem was the only Sauternes given this rating, indicating its perceived superiority and higher prices over all other wines of its type. Yquem's success stems largely from the site's susceptibility to attack by "noble rot" (a particular kind of infestation by Botrytis cinerea). Wines from Château d'Yquem are characterised by their complexity, concentration and sweetness, which is balanced by relatively high acidity. With proper care, a bottle will keep for a century or more, and the fruity overtones will gradually fade and integrate with more complex secondary and tertiary flavours.” 1988 Chateau d’Yquem (1500ml) RP 96 1995 Chateau d’Yquem RP 95 2001 Chateau d’Yquem RP 100 Sponsored by: Patty Sibbs

MAGGY HAWK PINOT NOIR THREE JEROBOAMS FROM THE DEEP END OF ANDERSON VALLEY INCLUDES: 3 bottles, 1 each (3000ml)

Adversity often brings greatness to Pinot Noir, the most difficult of grapes to master. Greatness also arises in champion racehorses, something Proprietor Barbara Banke recognized and celebrates in the gifted Maggy Hawk, a winning thoroughbred honored with this Pinot Noir effort from the deep end of Mendocino’s Anderson Valley, mere moments from the Pacific Ocean. Each wine in the series is named for a horse born to Maggy Hawk: Jolie, Afleet, Stormin’ and Unforgettable, and to her sire, Hawkster. The unique expression borne of training, bloodlines, site and alchemy applies equally to wine and horses – Pinot Noir and thoroughbreds in particular. Fill your cellar with these single vineyard, single clone, hand-selected Pinot Noir Jeroboams. 2013 Jolie Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley Delicate & Floral; Year-in, Year-out, Jolie emerges as the most nuanced, floral and pretty Pinot Noir from the vineyard, a nod to the striking beauty of Maggy Hawk’s long-limbed, dark brown filly. 2013 Afleet, Anderson Valley Complex & Masculine; Much like Afleet, who was considered to be an enormously versatile horse on different surfaces and race lengths, the wine from this block is exceptional in each vintage, exhibiting complexity and a mouth-filling texture with remarkable consistency. 2013 Stormin’, Anderson Valley Intense & Structured; Planted to the 667 clone, the Stormin’ Pinot Noir is the living embodiment of the horse for whom it’s named, a wine that bursts out of the gate and exhibits a vivacious, powerful nature year after year. This is a wine of contradiction, much like its cantankerous namesake. Donated by: John Blazon MS and Spire Collection

There are four cuvées from Lokoya in 2014, representing four separate mountain sites – Diamond Mountain in the northwest, Spring Mountain behind the town of St. Helena, Howell Mountain on the eastside in the Vaca Mountains, and Mt. Veeder southwest of Oakville. Production of these wines ranges from a low of 509 cases for the Spring Mountain to 1,460 for the Mt. Veeder. They’re expensive, but generally in line with what you would expect to pay for a great firstgrowth from Bordeaux, which is where they compete qualitatively. These wines are all 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and are aged in 89 to 100% new French oak prior to being bottled unfiltered. The 2014s have put on weight and that’s reflected in just how great they have turned out. In addition, their silky tannins and soft, sumptuous, up-front style will be immediately appealing to serious consumers.” Sponsored by: Jane and Richard Spurling
