The Evening’s Program David Reynolds Reynolds & Buckley Auctioneers San Francisco, California “He is a one-man orchestra of auctioneering, able to separate audiences from their currency with the subtlety of a Spanish galleon in full rig and the passion of Billy Graham in full flight,” said Australian wine writer Jeremy Oliver. Tonight, David Reynolds returns to the Classic Wines Auction (CWA) for a 10th year to work his magic. He charms, cajoles, and entertains with spontaneous one-liners. What began as a lark 30 years ago has now grown into a national firm. Reynolds & Buckley annually raises millions of dollars for over 120 charities. In addition to the CWA, other charities include the Sun Valley Wine Auction, V Foundation Wine Celebration in Napa, Auction of Washington Wines, and Central Coast Wine Classic. Many of David’s events are regularly listed in the Wine Spectator’s Top 10 charity auctions. Unique in a niche of his own creation: his focus is solely on fundraising auctions. Despite his love of the grape, his events are not limited to wine fundraisers. He also lifts his gavel to offer fine art, travel, dining, sports, and lifestyle experiences. Auctioning, however, is only part of his contribution. David is a proven expert on the theater and science that make a fundraising auction successful. Colleen Buckley, his wife, is his partner in this venture. For more information, visit www.Reynolds-Buckley.com.

PYJO challenges five bands of different levels and age groups with fast-paced rehearsals packed with improvisation methods, music theory, rhythmic training, sight reading, listening, and composition. Active in their communities and in continuing their studies, PYJO alumni continue to learn about the art of Jazz at programs like Berklee College of Music, Oberlin College Conservatory, Julliard, and The New School.

The Bobby Torres Ensemble The Bobby Torres Ensemble features musical talent of the highest caliber in Portland to explore the many musical inflections of Latin Jazz. Bobby’s own musical pedigree includes playing with Joe Cocker, Tom Jones, Etta James, Al Jarreau, Oscar Brown Jr., Arlo Guthrie, and Jackson Brown to name a few. Categorized as Latin Jazz, Bobby’s fresh arrangements of standards and originals feature churning Latin grooves richly ornamented with jazz inflections. This music turns toe tapping listeners into dancers. “For the Auction this evening, Bobby’s quintet includes Israel Annoh on the drums, Dick Titterington on trumpet, Bassist Damien Erskine, and Pianist Dan Gaynor.” “Bobby Torres Ensemble – Latin jazz with enough flavor and spice to satisfy your body and soul’s need for rhythmic harmony.” – The Oregonian A&E

Bre Gregg combines elements of Bluesy-Jazz and Soul in her own dynamic, modern style. Influenced by Bonnie Raitt, Nina Simone, Ray Charles and Norah Jones, her sultry, authentic style is displayed in her debut album, “On The Wind.” Inheriting her love of performance from a long line of musicians, Bre was born singing and has never stopped.

After graduating from the Technical Institute for Oenology and Agriculture in Alba (one of the most renowned Italian schools for winemaking), Danilo worked for two years at the Oenological laboratory of Alba. In 1987, he was appointed as chief winemaker and joined a Barbaresco producer, where he served as winemaker and cellar master. At the same time, he completed a master course for viticulture and enology at the University of Turin. From 1990 to 1999, Danilo continued his formative experience as winemaker and production manager at the Piedmontese winery “Prunotto” of Alba, and worked closely with the Marchesi Antinori family, the Tuscan owners of the winery. Today, Danilo lives in Alba with his wife Sandra and two children, Michela and Edoardo. Purchased in 1858 by the first king of Italy, Fontanafredda has both a rich history and a fresh, innovative approach to winemaking. Located in Piedmont, Italy, Fontanafredda’s 305 acres produce authentically styled Barolo and Barbera while providing refuge for a wide array of flora and fauna. The estate is managed according to a “zero-chemical” program, using only natural methods of fertilization and pest control also making it a bio-natural reserve. The wine itself provides a benchmark for Barolo and Barbera wines that deftly balance aromas and deep concentration of fruit with finesse and elegance. Says winemaker Danilo Drocco: “Barolo should reveal itself little by little, rather than all at once.”

Isabelle Meunier Winemaker Evening Land Vineyards Isabelle Meunier serves as Winemaker for Evening Land Vineyards (ELV) and oversees all production in Oregon. She works closely with Dominique Lafon in developing ELV wines. Prior to her role at ELV, she was Associate Winemaker at Le Clos Jordanne in Niagara, Canada and has worked with winemaker Pascal Marchand at Domaine de la Vougeraie. Before Le Clos Jordanne, she was a member of the winemaking team at Felton Road Vineyards and Seresin Estate in New Zealand. She trained in Viniculture and Oenology at Dijon University in Burgundy, France and did post graduate degree in Viniculture and Oenology in New Zealand. First established in 2005 with The Occidental Vineyard on the far Sonoma Coast of California, Evening Land Vineyards now organically farms over 120 acres of heritage vineyards that produce 13 estate wines. From the volcanic soils of the storied Seven Springs Vineyard in the Eola Hills of Oregon, to the fog wrapped ridges of the Sonoma Coast, to the windswept mountains of fossilized sea shells at The Tempest Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills, Evening Land wines explore the sensitivity of pinot noir and chardonnay in these diverse backdrops. Recently, Evening Land expanded this varied picture of pinot noir and chardonnay with maison-crafted Burgundian wines through ELV Cote d’Or, a winery established in Burgundy. Winemaking at The Seven Springs Vineyard is in the hands of Burgundy trained Isabelle Meunier. Dominique Lafon of Les Comtes de Lafon in Meursault serves as consulting winemaker. Christophe Vial, in consultation with Dominique Lafon, serves as the winemaker for ELV Cote d’Or. The name “Evening Land Vineyards” was inspired by a Greek myth in which the golden fruits that grew in the gardens of The Evening Land became the source that kept the Gods immortal. According to this myth, The Evening Land exists under the constantly setting sun on the western rim of the known world, just beyond the reach of mortals.

Ed Sbragia Chief Winemaker Sbragia Family Estate When Ed Sbragia was growing up, wine meant both livelihood and quality of life to his family. Ed’s grandfather, an immigrant from Tuscany, had naturally gravitated to the wineries flourishing in California at the turn of the century. Ed’s father acquired his own vineyards near Healdsburg, growing zinfandel grapes for sale and home winemaking. In the Tuscan tradition, good red wine was a part of every family dinner. The vineyards meant hard work for young Ed – pruning, thinning, harvesting and crushing. Ed majored in chemistry at the University of California at Davis, headed for a career in science. But his family background made him the top candidate for a job in a winery laboratory upon graduation. Quickly realizing that the winemaker’s job was what he wanted, he returned to California State University at Fresno for a master’s degree in enology. After a year working at a Sonoma County winery, he learned about an opening as winemaker Myron Nightingale’s assistant at Beringer. Ed is now a consultant for Beringer after 32 years as Winemaster. “Beringer has been so gracious to me. They helped me start my family winery, Sbragia Family Vineyards.” Ed and his wife, Jane Sbragia, purchased the old Lake Sonoma Winery facility in 2006 and his is where Sbragia Family Vineyards started its very own winery. “Sbragia Family Vineyards is a dream that I’ve had for some time, a small, family-owned winery making limited, individual lots of wine from grapes grown in select blocks of my favorite vineyards. I’ve always had one foot in Sonoma and the other in Napa. Both areas mean a lot to me emotionally. I’m more attached to Dry Creek because it’s where I raised my kids. But the wines that I’ve made at Beringer are like my children, so Napa is also a very special place to me. Either way, the wines are intensely personal, and expression not only of terroir, but of my family’s winemaking heritage.” “The Family Vineyards are my father’s legacy to me and my children. I love this land and making wine from it. Bottling it under the family name affirms all the work my father did for me. It is something I had to do to show my gratitude to my father, Gino.” The winery is small, family-owned and is known for making wine from a single vineyard designate. All of the wine is limited production and made specially in the big, rich, polished Sbragia style. The winery produces 8,000 cases of wine per year and is open to the public daily.

The vini Award Each year since 1992, the Classic Wines Auction has presented the VINI Award to individuals that have used their enthusiasm and support of viticulture to create an environment where the enjoyment of wine can flourish. Their knowledge and experience have elevated the quality of the wines offered at the Classic Wines Auction and created new standards of excellence for the auction and related events. The involvement of these individuals has increased participation in Classic Wines Auction events from winemakers, chefs, and wine lovers across the country.

Gary Maffei, 2012 Gary has been involved with the Classic Wines Auction (CWA) since its inception as an independent non-profit organization raising much needed funds for multiple children’s charities.

“Cheers to all of you who make life wonderful for children.”

Through Gary’s involvement in the early years and the co-chairing of the 2006 and 2007 auctions, he helped bring the auction to two record breaking years, raising almost $5 million between those years. Gary returned with all the past co-chairs to help celebrate the 25th Anniversary in 2009.  He continues to support the auction and its participating charities through his board participation with one of the current partner charities, New Avenues for Youth. Gary has always said that CWA is one of the most effective ways to raise funds for multiple charities and keep the operating expenses to a minimum. He jokingly remarks that “you can go to one event and support four charities at once.” A lifelong resident of Portland, Gary has been active in a wide variety of community service roles over the past 40 years. He has chaired events for over 10 local charities and co-chaired one of Oregon’s most successful children’s events: “Kows for Kids”.  In addition to his current participation on the New Avenues for Youth board, Gary also serves on the boards of Park Academy and Our house, and chairs the Portland Center for the Performing Arts Foundation. Gary learned well from his Italian immigrant parents that when you give back to your community the rewards and satisfaction far exceed the effort.

The orvi Award Each year since 2002, the ORVI Award has been awarded to individuals who have demonstrated significant achievements in building the Oregon wine industry and establishing its worldwide reputation. The ORVI award is presented to individuals that have not only elevated the status of Oregon wines, but have also provided generous support to the Classic Wines Auction. These individuals are leaders in the Oregon wine industry and are recognized and respected for their professionalism and philanthropy.

Harry Peterson-Nedry, 2012 As founder, founding winemaker and managing partner of CHEHALEM, Harry Peterson-Nedry is well-recognized for his ability to produce stellar wine and significant achievements in establishing the domestic and worldwide reputation of Oregon wines. Harry has actively contributed his time and resources to the Classic Wines Auction and many other organizations in the community and wine industry. Harry’s interest in wine began innocently enough as a consumer passion, but soon developed into a consuming passion—one that was ultimately rooted when he purchased his first vineyard land for Ridgecrest Vineyards, in 1980. Ridgecrest was not only the first of Harry’s vineyards, but was also the first vineyard development in what was to be Oregon’s Ribbon Ridge AVA (American Viticultural Area). In 1990, Harry founded the Chehalem brand, then having estate fruit that was in its sixth harvest year, and his hands-on but technical approach to winemaking began. Within five years, he had expanded the winery’s estate holdings to include Corral Creek Vineyards (adjacent to the winery) and Stoller Vineyards in the southern Dundee Hills, a vineyard developed by his Chehalem partners Bill and Cathy Stoller, who joined the winery in 1993. Bill and Harry remain firm partners today. Now a 20,000-case estate winery, Chehalem is located on the outskirts of Newberg in the northern Willamette Valley and is known for Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Chardonnay. The winery also produces small amounts of innovative wines such as Gamay Noir, a sekt Riesling and Grüner Veltliner. His daughter, Wynne, now also works as winemaker at Chehalem. Harry’s interest in the wine industry extends to group and collaborative work for the industry. He has served at length on the Oregon Wine Board, the boards of the International Pinot Noir Celebration, International Riesling Foundation, Oregon Pinot Camp, WineAmerica, Oregon Wine Coalition, and has worked with friends to help establish the Oregon Wine Symposium and Chehalem Mountain Winegrowers. Also, he collaborated with friends to raise Oregon Riesling quality and awareness nationally helping found the Oregon Riesling Alliance (ORA), and, similarly for Chardonnay, the Oregon Chardonnay Alliance (ORCA). He was a key architect of the Willamette Valley sub-AVAs and co-authored the petition to establish Ribbon Ridge AVA.

koerner rombauer Award for Service Created in 2007 and named for Koerner Rombauer, this very special award is intended to recognize individuals, like Koerner, that have significantly contributed to the success of the Classic Wines Auction through their dedication, enthusiasm and commitment to the event and its benefiting charities. The efforts of these individuals have directly and substantially increased proceeds raised to assist children and families in our community.

Greg Robeson, 2012 Greg Robeson has been involved with the Classic Wines Auction since 1987, serving on the Metropolitan Family Service and Classic Wines Auction Boards and various committees, producing the event’s collateral materials for many years, coordinating chefs and winemakers, and serving as Auction Co-Chair in 1990 and 1995. Greg served on the CWA Board in 2008-2011 and served as Food and Beverage Chair for events in 2009-2010. Greg has contributed time, creativity, and enthusiasm to help ensure the current and future success of the auction and its positive impact on the community. Greg Robeson is president of Robeson Communications, a firm providing a full range of advertising and marketing services to clients in the Pacific Northwest. Robeson has over 25 years experience in the Portland metropolitan area working for clients such as Travel Oregon (Oregon Tourism Commission), Brand Oregon, Oregon Dungeness Crab Commission, ARAMARK, Skamania Lodge, Archery Summit Winery, Carlton Farms, and the Portland Art Museum, among many others. Robeson has developed numerous food and wine promotions and programs for a variety of organizations, both locally and in New York. Since 2005, he has managed the annual Oregon Bounty promotion for Travel Oregon, which highlights Oregon’s culinary artisans and promotes the state as a tourism destination for foodies. During his career, Robeson has participated in numerous charitable and community activities. Since 1987, he has chaired, served on the steering committees for, or helped to create, fundraising events that have raised over $30 million for local charities. In 1998, Robeson worked with famed chef and author Alice Waters to create The Garden Classroom at Woodlawn School, a program designed to teach children how to plan, plant, grow and cook healthy food from a garden.  In 2004, he was awarded the Ron Schmidt Community Service Award by the Portland chapter of Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) for his work with Portland’s non-profit community.

Handmade at Paley’s – Handmade at Paley’s Fruit & Nut Bar is the first cheese condiment made with organic ingredients by an award-winning Chef.

Today the Fruit & Nut Bar is made in the Paley’s Place kitchen and you can find the delicious blend of dried fruits, nuts, and honey at gourmet cheese shops and specialty grocers.

Jacobsen Salt Co. – Pure salt crystals are harvested straight from Oregon’s cold ocean waters using traditional methods. The salt flavors the dishes of chefs and food lovers and is available in specialty shops and grocers around Oregon.

Oregon Albacore Commission – The Oregon Albacore Commission represents local fishermen and fishing families who catch their albacore one at a time by hook and line from sustainable stocks.

Enjoy this crab connoisseur’s delight with the assurance that Oregon’s crab stocks are healthy and harvested sustainably.

Oregon Olive Mill – The Durant family’s Oregon Olive Mill @ Red Ridge is the first olive processing facility in Yamhill County, and the largest in Oregon.

Auction Chefs Cory Schreiber Founder of Wildwood Restaurant, author, and faculty member of the International Culinary School at the Art Institute in Portland An Oregon native, Cory Schreiber opened Wildwood Restaurant in 1994 and rapidly became a leader in the region’s bustling culinary scene. Cory won the James Beard Award in 1998 for Best Chef Pacific Northwest – a fitting tribute to a man who cherishes the land, its people, and its produce much in the same way Beard, a native Oregonian himself, did. Wildwood was inducted into the Nation’s Restaurant News Fine Dining Hall of Fame in Chicago in 2003. After leaving Wildwood in 2007, Cory applied his considerable experience and knowledge of local food as the Farm-toSchool Program Manager at the Oregon Department of Agriculture. In this role, he helped develop a program that connects Oregon’s K-12 schools and local farms, with the goals of serving healthy meals in school cafeterias, improving student nutrition, providing educational opportunities in nutrition and agriculture, and supporting Oregon’s farmers. In January 2010, Cory joined the faculty of the Art Institute of Portland as its “culinary artist in residence.” He now teaches classes at the Art Institute Portland’s International Culinary School, located in Portland’s Pearl District. Cory is the author of two cookbooks: Wildwood: Cooking from the Source in the Pacific Northwest (Ten Speed Press, 2000) and Rustic Fruit Desserts (Ten Speed Press, 2009, co-authored by Julie Richardson).

Auction Chefs Adam Sappington Executive Chef, Co-Owner, The Country Cat Dinner House & Bar Always comforted by food’s ability to incite conversation and generate close-knit bonds, Adam Sappington’s passion for food dates back to his upbringing on the central Missouri farmlands where he spent hours with his mother in the kitchen and attended the local farmers markets with his grandmother. Hungry and ready to plunge into his new career, Adam started work at a cutting-edge trattoria in his hometown. He moved to Portland to attend Western Culinary Institute and soon landed at Wildwood Restaurant were he worked his way up from pantry cook to executive chef over the course of 11 years, which shaped him into the chef he is today. A self-taught expert in whole animal butchery—one of the first in Portland and now lauded as the pre-eminent butchering chef in America, Adam believes this knowledge has made him a more well-rounded chef while also ensuring more money gets directly to the farmer and that every piece of the animal is utilized to minimize waste. He works hard to preserve his beloved craft by teaching classes on sustainable cooking and whole animal butchery at the Portland Meat Collective, Culinary Institute of America and the French Culinary Institute. Adam has now called the restaurant kitchen home for over 20 years and cannot imagine spending the majority of his time anywhere else.

Upon graduation in 2004 he accepted a job with Scott Dolich at Park Kitchen in  Portland, Oregon. He was named Sous Chef in 2007 and worked with Dolich until March of 2009. David started Xocolatl de Davíd informally, and unintentionally, in 2005 while just “playing around with chocolate.” Over the next four years he worked hard to make his chocolates and confections stand out from those around him. Briggs works with as many local farmers as possible and sources his single origin chocolate from sustainable and fair trade sources. And while the focus is certainly chocolate, David’s confections stand out due to their savory and sweet nature. Xocolatl de Davíd has received numerous local and national accolades including a Good Food Award for his Salted Caramel Chocolate Bar in 2011.

Reception Chefs Thomas Boyce Executive Chef, Bluehour A California native, Thomas Boyce’s career trajectory began with humble beginnings - summer cooking jobs in Napa—that eventually led him to Aspen, New York City and the Chef de Cuisine post at Spago Beverly Hills, Wolfgang Puck’s flagship restaurant. In August 2011 he joined Bluehour as Executive Chef. Bruce Carey, Bluehour’s owner/partner, brought Thomas on board to invigorate the restaurant’s already popular menu, adding flavors and ingredients from other cuisines, including Japan and India. Thomas believes that cooking should be elegant and approachable without being fussy, while still leaving room to cook with depth of flavor. Bluehour offers the perfect platform to create that vision.

There, he was immersed in rustic Italian cooking, and learned the importance of using local ingredients. Anthony then went to work with Adam Berger at Ten-01 and in 2008 transitioned to Berger’s eastside restaurant Tabla Mediterranean Bistro, where Anthony now helms the critically praised kitchen, crafting regional dishes from Italy and the Mediterranean.

Ambassadors Dinner Chefs Cathy Whims Chef/Owner of Nostrana and Oven & Shaker Cathy Whims holds a long-time love affair with Italy and jokes that she’s become somewhat of a “born again Italian.” Through her extensive travel throughout her adopted homeland, she is constantly searching for ways to bring back the rich Italian culture to her community in Portland. Along with educating herself through travel, Cathy has studied with Marcella and Victor Hazan, Madeleine Kamman at the School for American Chefs, and the Albarello family of the Antica Torre Trattoria in Barbaresco. Cathy’s mentor, Faith Heller Willinger invited Cathy to cook at her home in Florence and it was Faith’s guidance that ignited Cathy’s passion for seasonal vegetable dishes. Cathy spent 12 years as the executive chef at Genoa and became an owner in 1992. She then became inspired to open her own restaurant and in 2006 she opened Nostrana, a rustic Italian restaurant featuring a wood burning oven and wood burning grill. Nostrana specializes in the regional cuisines of Italy using ingredients provided by many of the best artisans in the Northwest. In the first year of business, the restaurant was named Restaurant of the Year by The Oregonian. Her deep-rooted love for Italy has brought on Cathy’s newest adventure, Oven and Shaker. In this new restaurant she is excited to work with world-renowned mixologist, Ryan Magarian. Together they draw inspiration to design a menu that is playful and delicious. Oven and Shaker highlights Italian street-food and wood oven fired pizza paired with the expertise and craft of fresh, whimsical and classic cocktails. Cathy has been recognized for her talent by the James Beard Foundation and is a three-time nominee in the Best Chef Northwest category for 2009, 2010 and 2011.

1 Italian Icons Love Italian wines? Looking for a boost for your wine cellar, or thinking about starting one? You could do no better than invest in this lot of top-shelf Italian picks. These wines represent a veritable “who’s who” of Italian winemakers from the country’s best regions, focusing on the Piedmont (Barolo, Barbaresco, Barbera), a few from Tuscany (Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino), and a very special white wine from Veneto. The list starts with with a three-litre of Giacomo Conterno Barolo Riserva Monfortino which Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate gave 98 points. Perfect with a roasted beast. Angelo Gaja’s 1996 Costa Russi is another amazing wine which Wine Spectator granted a 97 points. The Castello di Lispida Amphora Vino Bianco, the lone white wine in the package is a fascinating bottle in its own right. This wine is made in a winery that dates from 1150 A.D. and crafted with ancient winemaking methods. Instead of using today’s glycol-cooled steel tanks, the winery decants the wine into eight-foot tall terracotta amphoras buried in the ground to control temperature. These are all small production family-owned artisanal wines that have just the right amount of age on them to enjoy today, or lay down for a few more years.

Bodacious Bordeaux

A beautiful addition to any cellar, this carefully selected lot from Bordeaux includes wines from some of the region’s top producers, all ranked Grande Cru Classé in 1855. The Left Bank of Bordeaux, the epicenter of Cabernet Sauvignon produces powerful versions of the varietal and from the top vintages the wines can easily age for decades. This Lot includes wines from some of the most exciting vintages in the past 20 years, offering both wines that can age as well as wines coming into their prime. Château d’Armailhac dates back to the early 1700’s and sits directly next to MoutonRothschild on some of the best gravel banks in Pauillac. The densely planted vineyards are made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, with an average vine age of 47 years. The blend is typically 60% Cabernet Sauvignon allowing for the Merlot and Cabernet Franc to show giving the wine a slightly more feminine character. Château Clerc-Milon shows us classic Pauillac, with dark and brooding masculine strength. The property itself dates back to the early 19th century when it was owned by Jean Baptiste Clerc who at the time was in charge of the 1855 classification. The property was ranked in the famous classification before being sold. The wine is quite impressive! Château Carruades de Lafite is the second label of the Premier Grand Cru Classe of Château Lafite-Rothschild. With some of the best vineyards in the Medoc, Lafite produces this stunning wine. The Carruades de Lafite has garnered impressive attention around the globe, including Asia, where the value escalated more than ten-fold! Château Haut-Bages-Libéral is ideally situated on the top of a plateau of gravel, with an amazing view of the Gironde. The property dates back to the 16th century, but came into its glory when purchased by the Libéral family in the 18th century. They were brokers in the wine industry and knew quite a bit about wine. Today, the Château produces powerful wines of great value. This package will be sold as one lot and includes 42 bottles. To take home this evening:

Classical Evening ywca clark county Signature Lot

Mark your calendars for this one-of-a-kind evening in support of the ywca clark county. Eleven couples will dine in the Trustee Board Room of the Portland Art Museum during the exhibit “The Body Beautiful.” Your private chef, Billy Schumaker, will prepare a delectable meal with Et Fille wines perfectly paired. On Friday October, 26, 2012, begin your evening with a tour of the exhibit. The Body Beautiful collection rarely travels due to its size and value. The collection explores the human form through exquisite objects from the British Museum’s famed collection of Greek and Roman sculpture. When the dinner bell rings, Chef Billy Schumaker, Executive Chef with Food In Bloom catering, will delight you with his creativity. Schumaker picked up the basics of cooking while growing up on a fruit and vegetable farm in Ohio and began professional cooking at Trotters Tavern while attending school at Bowling Green State University. After moving to Portland in 1996 and working at such notable restaurants as Jake’s Crawfish, Tapeo and Paley’s Place, Billy opened his first restaurant, Taqueria Nueve, in 2000 and then d.f. restaurant in 2005. Schumaker favors the signature flavor combinations of South American, Latin and other cultures whose culinary traditions are informed by the home cooking of its people. He is known for presenting all-natural, locally sourced and uncommon ingredients in new and interesting ways, appealing to the Pacific Northwest diner. Perfectly paired with your meal will be wines from Et Fille Wines. This father/daughter winemaking team has been carefully crafting Pinot Noir since 2003. If her schedule allows, winemaker and co-owner Jessica Mozeico-Blair will join you. After your evening winds down, enjoy a night at the Governor Hotel. The newly remodeled Governor is one of the true historic landmarks of the Pacific Northwest — perfectly combining historical ambiance and modern convenience. You will be transported by limousine, to and from the Museum, so no need to worry. This package will be sold for $1,250 per couple, up to 11 couples and will take place on Friday, October 26, 2012.

24 French Polynesia with DeLille Cellars 2012 Washington Ambassador Lot Imagine the crystalline, cobalt blue waters of French Polynesia. Now add to that vision exotic, expertly prepared food and DeLille Cellars’ finest wines, all provided with five-star service, and accompanied by live jazz. Swooning yet? This dream will become reality for the winner of this package, a private luxury cruise chartered by Greg and Stacy Lill of DeLille Cellars and FineFoodandWineCruise.com. The eight-day cruise for two people departs from sunny Tahiti on Saturday, September 29, 2012. Just as Oregon’s weather turns cold and rainy, you’ll be setting sail from the warmth of French Polynesia on the Paul Gauguin, voted one of the top five luxury small cruise ships in the world in 2011 in a Condé Nast Traveler readers’ poll. The Paul Gauguin was designed specifically to sail the shallow seas of Tahiti and French Polynesia, visiting small ports that larger ships can’t reach and effortlessly blending into the stunning natural beauty of the South Seas. With only 332 passengers aboard, you will enjoy a crew to guest ratio of 1 to 1.5. Spacious suites and staterooms—most with private balconies— an onboard watersports marina, a choice of three open-seating dining venues, and an extensive spa count among her luxurious attributes. The atmosphere aboard ship radiates warmth, informality, and Polynesian flair. And a troupe of Gauguines—a local Tahitian group who serve as cruise staff, entertainers, and storytellers—add the unique personality of Tahiti to every cruise. Each island visited features an eclectic mix of romantic and adventure-based shore excursions in some of the most beautiful places you will ever see in your life. Celebrity chef Kevin Gillespie will prepare two wine dinners to showcase the region’s exotic and delicious cuisine. The decks, pools, restaurants, and nightclubs are transformed into an extension of the DeLille Cellars tasting room with a fun, festive, and casual atmosphere. To make the experience even more special, a jazz ensemble of Grammynominated musicians will have you smiling and grabbing your partner for the dance floor. And to complete this package, use your $2,500 gift card towards airfare between Portland and Tahiti. This package will be sold as one lot for two people and will take place from September 29 to October 6, 2012. Airfare is not included. THIS LOT INCLUDES: n

Freedom Wall New Words 2 by Margot Voorhies Thompson

Margot Voorhies Thompson’s work has been guided by her thoughts about the power of language to express human hopes as well as to suppress freedom and opportunity. She uses her longstanding formal and abstract visual language of calligraphed shapes and intersecting forms to reflect on the linguistic and expressive evolution of the complex world around us. Freedom Wall New Words 2 is a painting from Thompson’s most recent work, completed in 2011, and was inspired by the social and political tumult in countries around the world, where the masses seek to express their desires, and governments respond with varying degrees of accommodation and suppression. The painting is both disciplined and chaotic, yet undeniably passionate, like the events she seeks to portray. An Oregon native, Margot Voorhies Thompson studied at Lewis and Clark College, Reed College, the Pacific Northwest College of Art, and at the Hochschule Fur Kunsterlische in Linz, Austria. Her work is in collections including the Portland Art Museum, the Stanford University Hospital, and the Printmaking Workshop in New York. Commissions include pieces for Oregon Health & Sciences University; Portland State University; Kaiser Permanente; the Woodstock Branch Multnomah County Library; and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Recently she completed a commission for the Oregon State Hospital in Salem. This item will be sold as one lot. TO TAKE HOME THIS EVENING n

31 Fascinating Fontanafredda 2012 International Ambassador Package Since 1878, Fontanafredda, in the heart of Italy’s famous Langhe winegrowing region of the Piedmont, has mastered the creation of singular Barolos. The winery’s style is truly representative of winemaker Danilo Drocco’s philosophy that “Barolo should reveal itself little by little, rather than all at once.” As a result, Fontanafredda’s wine regularly earns reviews in the 90s and has become a benchmark for authentically styled Barolo and Barbera wines that deftly balance intense aromas and deep concentration of fruit with finesse and elegance. Fontanafredda’s history began in 1858, when Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy, purchased the estate, a former hunting preserve, to produce fine Barolo for his personal use. In 1878, Count Emanuele Alberto di Mirafiori, the firstborn son of the king, inherited Fontanafredda and made the wines available commercially. Beginning in 1931, the estate was in the hands of Monte dei Paschi di Siena, the world’s oldest bank, a period during which Fontanafredda continued to grow and thrive. Today, Fontanafredda is the single largest contiguous estate in Piedmont with over 305 acres of land, including 210 acres of vineyards in the Serralunga, Barolo, and Diano d’Alba communes. This stature translates to extraordinary access to many of Piedmont’s greatest vineyard sites and top Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto, and Moscato grapes. Although Fonatafredda has a deep history, it combines its old-world ethic with new world technology. Projects underway include the evolution toward a philosophy of ecological responsibility and sustainability. Currently, all estate vineyards are managed according to a “zero chemical” program, using only natural methods for fertilization and pest control. Win this package, two couples will quite literally “live like kings” during their four night stay at the Fontanafredda winery in the breathtaking Tuscan countryside. After flying courtesy of American Airlines, immerse yourself in the delights of Piedmont wine and cuisine for the next four days. Your stay includes an exclusive tour and tasting of the winery and dinner with one of Fontanafredda’s principals. This package will be sold as one lot for two couples. THIS LOT INCLUDES:

This is your opportunity to own one of these beautiful cars (this is not a lease) and plan a vacation!

Incredibly powerful, yet still efficient—the new 528i features a 2.0-Liter TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine. This small and compact engine packs in 240-hp and 260-lbs of torque. And, combined with BMW’s technological innovations and luxurious features, you’ll experience a ride like no other.

OR LEXUS/Pebble Beach Food and Wine Festival The 2012 Lexus CT 200h is the latest addition to the Lexus award-winning hybrid lineup. Combining the highest combined fuel-efficiency rating of any luxury vehicle – 42 MPG – with sport style driving experience, the Lexus CT is not your average hybrid. A variety of ecological materials and practices are used in the creation of the CT, including floor mats composed of 30% plant-based sources and a painting process specifically designed to reduce environmental impact. And, because 90% of the vehicle can ultimately be recycled, its design won’t only influence the vehicles of the future. It will also help build them. Selection of the Lexus brings a trip for two to Pebble Beach Food & Wine Festival. The Pebble Beach Food & Wine Festival (April 12th-15th, 2012) is one of the premier epicurean events in the United States.

38 Figgins Family Weekend As Chris Figgins, President and Winemaking Director of Figgins Family Wine Estates, says, “Building upon ones forefathers’ legacy is both a privilege and a responsibility. We do so with passion, focus, and utmost attention to quality. To do otherwise would be to dishonor the very foundation we are entrusted with.” Among Washington’s winemakers, the Figgins family is royalty. Besides having started the first and most venerated winery in Walla Walla, Leonetti Cellar in 1977, they produce wine under their family name, FIGGINS, and grow all natural, grass-fed beef at Lostine Cattle Company. Their wines consistently sell out upon release, and a name on their “List” is akin to getting a ticket to the Oscars. The lucky winner of this package will not only receive spots on both wine lists, but will be introduced to the Figgins family’s life in Walla Walla in a very exclusive way. The weekend, for three lucky couples, begins Thursday evening, October 4, 2012, with dinner hosted by the Figgins family at one of their favorite Walla Walla restaurants. While at dinner you will feast on beef from Lostine Cattle Company and savor current and library wines from both Leonetti and FIGGINS. As you learn the history of the wines you’ll get to know each of the family’s members: Nancy and Gary, Leonetti Founders, Chris, President and Winemaking Director; his wife, Heidi Figgins Marketing & Creative Director; and Amy Figgins, Manager/Partner of Leonetti Cellar. That night you’ll return to your comfortable abode at the Marcus Whitman Hotel. The next day, you’ll join Chris and Amy at the famed Leonetti Cellar Estate for lunch, a tour, and a special barrel tasting. That evening, you have tickets to the exclusive FIGGINS VIP event where you will receive an early preview of the wine to be released the following day and barrel tasting of future releases. Saturday you will find yourself at Figgins Estate Vineyard attending the FIGGINS release event—an event held once each year exclusively for List members only. To prepare for your weekend in Walla Walla, you will take home tonight a double magnum of 2008 FIGGINS Estate Red Wine and a double magnum of 2009 Leonetti Cellar Merlot, etched and signed. Delicious! Plus, each couple will be added to the exclusive mailing lists for Leonetti Cellar and FIGGINS.

VINI Dinner with Gary Maffei: Shaken not Stirred

When Sinatra crooned “it was a very good year”, he could have very easily been referring to this year’s VINI recipient, Gary Maffei, except in plural many times over. That’s because Gary has given so many years of uncompromising dedication and service to the Classic Wines Auction. Gary started his involvement with CWA in 2002, then serving as a co-chair of the Auction in 2006, 2007 and 2009. Along the way he also served on the Classic Wines Auction Board from 2005-2011. Not coincidentally, during his tenure, CWA raised over $16 million. So, how to honor such a treasure? Of course, with Gary, style is key. That’s why we’ve created a dinner in his honor that would make Don Draper and his Mad Men cohorts proud. Step back in time and join us at the Hotel deLuxe, where you’ll pull up to the hotel, toss the valet your keys, and then enter the Golden Era of Hollywood. The evening will be a contemporary tribute to 60s swank, starting off in the Screening Room with a martini bar featuring “The Gary”, a handcrafted cocktail designed by local mixologists from New Deal Distillery. Then, it’s off to dinner in Gracie’s, for a multi-course dinner prepared by executive chef Mark Hosack as an ode to that culinary icon, Julia Child. Desserts will be a modern vintage twist courtesy of M. Robin Cakes. There’ll also be dancing between courses (and after dinner) to the Rat Pack and other cocktail chic favorites, so be sure to dress the part. Every couple leaves with a special commemorative etched VINI magnum filled with J.K. Carriere’s 2010 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. The package will be sold for $1,500 per couple, up to 50 couples, and will take place on Thursday, September 13, 2012. THIS LOT INCLUDES: n

40 Oregon’s Finest: Chef Vitaly and Winemaker Véronique

On Wednesday, June 27, 2012, acclaimed winemaker Véronique Drouhin-Boss and star chef Vitaly Paley of Paley’s Place will welcome 20 couples for an unforgettable food and wine experience at Domaine Drouhin Oregon, in the Dundee Hills. There is no finer place to be than Oregon in the summer, and with two such great talents working together, there will be no better place to be than at this exclusive dinner. Véronique’s roots go deep—deep into her family’s 13th century cellars under the streets of Beaune, the heart of Burgundy, France. She represents the fourth generation of Drouhins to make wine, and her work here in Oregon is considered some of the most sublime Pinot Noir and Chardonnay produced anywhere. As Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate makes clear: “Domaine Drouhin remains one of the standards against which other Oregon Pinot Noirs must be measured.” As Jancis Robinson raved in describing a review of all the wines produced at DDO: “(the wines) beautifully express the Dundee Hills with a French accent.” Chef Vitaly Paley is rightly regarded as a master. Paley’s Place, which he and his wife Kimberly opened in 1995, is a top destination for foodies, and his sous chefs have frequently become stars in their own right—a testament to the high quality of his kitchen. He is a James Beard Foundation Award winner, and last year he won fans across the US by winning the title of Iron Chef on the popular TV show. Together, Vitaly and Véronique represent the best of Oregon, and there could be no better pairing for your pleasure than these two icons. This package will be sold for $1,500 per couple, up to 20 couples, and will take place on Wednesday, June 27, 2012. THIS LOT INCLUDES: n

Multi-course dinner prepared by Chef Vitaly Paley on Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Wine Flights and Flight

Members of the New Avenues Board invite you to become a part of aviation history! At the Wine Flights and Flight dinner on Saturday, August 18, 2012, you’ll admire rare and historic aircraft and possibly even go up in one of the oldest DC-3s still flying. Because this aircraft has been in service so long, each time it takes off it breaks a new world record. The history of this aircraft and others will be showcased to guests in a private hangar at the Aurora Airport. While you marvel at aircraft, you’ll enjoy a delicious dinner catered by Devil’s Catering. You’ll also enjoy wine flights from the Sonoma-based Chandelle Winery. Chandelle is an especially perfect fit for this event, not only because of their gold-medal winning, small production wines, but because of owner Robert Arnold’s special place in aeronautics history. In fact, “chandelle” is an old term for an aircraft control maneuver where the pilot combines a 180° turn with a climb. Besides producing delicious wine, Robert Arnold’s roots are deep in the history of aviation. He is a grandson of aircraft designer and builder Donald Douglas, Sr., and also grandson of Henry ‘Hap’ Arnold, aviation pioneer and World War II commanding General of the Army Air Forces and a holder of Five Star Rank in both the US Army and the US Air Force. Douglas Aircraft designed and built many famous airplanes including the Douglas World Cruisers and the DC-3. This package will be sold for $700 per couple, for a maximum of 30 couples, and will be held Saturday, August 18, 2012. This package is also available for individual sign up for $350 per person in the Super Silent Auction (package #41), section, open from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the back of the ballroom.

Founded in 1994, Wildwood Restaurant is one of Portland’s seminal culinary outposts and laid the foundation for the food mecca the city has become. This Wildwood Retrospective dinner brings together the chefs and people who made the restaurant an icon. Taking place in Wildwood’s newly designed Wood Room (formerly the Overton Room), fourteen lucky couples will savor a dinner intensely focused on local flavors. Each course will be artfully crafted by one of Wildwoods chefs: Chef Dustin Clark, Executive Chef of Wildwood, 2006-present; Pastry Chef Michelle Vernier, Pastry Chef at Paley’s Place and Pastry Chef at Wildwood, 2006-2010; Chef Adam Sappington, Chef/Owner of The Country Cat Dinnerhouse & Bar, and Chef at Wildwood, 1995-2006; and Chef Cory Schreiber, founder of Wildwood, author of Wildwood Cookbook: Cooking From the Source in the Pacific Northwest, James Beard Award Best Chef Northwest 1998, faculty member of the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Portland, and Executive Chef at Wildwood, 1994-2007. An outstanding dinner like this merits outstanding wine, and Savanna Ray (Wildwood Sommelier 2011- Present) and Randy Goodman (owner of Bar Avignon and Wildwood Sommelier 1994-2007) will keep your glass full. They will select current and library wines from Argyle Winery, Cristom Vineyards, The Eyrie Vineyards, and Roco to complement each course.

I know these early layers will evolve, which gives me great freedom to express…I do not worry about having any concrete meanings though because I intend the meanings to be as abstract as the paintings themselves. This also allows the viewer to bring their own experiences and interpretations to the work.  I don’t like to spoon feed my viewers.” A Painting for John Muir II will earn a special object of contemplation and beauty in the lucky winner’s home. to take home this evening: n

109 Lafite Bordeaux Connoisseurs know Chateau Lafite Rothschild is the ultra traditional Bordeaux producer. Even now, methods at Chateau Lafite Rothschild remain as they have for centuries: grapes are sorted by hand around four small tables, five people to a table; egg whites clarify the final wine; and the wine is aged only in French oak barrels painstakingly crafted by Chateau Lafite’s own barrel maker. The result sells for hundreds and even thousands of dollars a bottle and is cherished by wine lovers across the globe. Here is your chance to win six bottles of this fine Bordeaux. Each bottle has only become more elegant and complex over the forty to fifty years it has seasoned. to take home this evening:

Super Silent Auction 128 Tracy Leagjeld Monotype The title of Tracy Leagjeld’s Monotype, Turning Towards Spring, says it all. Its impressionistic cherry blossoms bring to mind Housman’s poem, “Loveliest of Trees, the Cherry Now,” and you can almost feel the brisk spring air teasing with hints of summer. Tracy says her art is a way to communicate and share with others her love and reverence for nature. “I love being outside surrounded by nature. Forests, meadows and deserts all have a different kind of energy. While exploring these areas I try to soak in this energy and hopefully this energy is transferred to the painting or print that I am working on.” A monotype, requiring the artist to work quickly and intuitively, not knowing exactly how the press will change the work as the single print is rolled out, is the perfect medium of expression for this philosophy. This package will be sold as one lot. to take home this evening: n

This Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from some of the finest and most highly regarded vineyards in Washington State. Each produces fantastic wine in their own right; when blended they produce extraordinary wine. While this wine can be enjoyed now it will benefit greatly from additional cellaring and, with proper storage, should develop for ten years or more. This label was done by Seattle artist, Jared Rue.

Because of the popularity and demand for their Dry Riesling and Sweet Riesling, this Columbia Valley Riesling was created: a taste profile that plays to both sides of the Riesling spectrum. The sweetness plays wonderfully with fiery fare (from Thai to Mexican), while the natural acidity stands up to richer foods (from French to German). 2010 Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling 750 ml, One bottle 89 POINTS Wine Spectator. The Washington grapes chosen for the Sweet Riesling are picked riper than the grapes for the dry Riesling. Their Sweet Riesling brings perfect balance to all fiery fare, especially Thai, Szechwan and Caribbean cuisine... or simply enjoy as an aperitif. 2010 Pacific Rim Vin De Glaciere Riesling 375 ml, One bottle 92 POINTS Wine & Spirits. This Vin de Glacière is sourced from their Wallula Vineyard which sits on a ridge soaring 1,000 feet above the Columbia River. Because the vineyard is farmed with the highest sustainable standards, the wine beautifully portrays the characteristics of this unique piece of land in Washington State’s Columbia Valley. Fruit tarts and cheesecake are classic pairings for this wine, but it also pairs well with blue cheeses.  Contributed by: Vinmotion Wines
