Shuttle 22 20 Cork

A celebration of fine art and fine wine. PR ES E NT E D BY


Dear Friends, I could not be more thrilled that we are together, under the big tent, for ShuttleCork 2022!

Thank you for being part of the most essential and largest fundraiser of the year for The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art! Thank you for

supporting our mission to keep the doors open to all people and to

continue offering free admission to this cultural jewel. Thank you, as

well, for helping us welcome schoolchildren to our museum, because that’s where the love of art is so often sparked for a lifetime.

I am especially grateful to Mary Bloch, our longstanding co-chair of the event, and to our new co-chair, Mark O’Connell, who is also a member

of our Board of Trustees. Together with their amazing committee, they

have made this an unforgettable fundraiser that is two nights of fun and celebration.

Last year’s event showed me just how supportive and creative our

community truly is. ShuttleCork 2021 was a virtual gathering, a year

when we brought the party to your doorstep and counted on you to join

2


the fun from the comfort of your home. Even though we were not together in person, you contributed more than $1 million to the museum and made it the top multiday fundraiser in

Kansas City in 2021. I am deeply touched by your generosity! This year, we can experience the joy of being together, in person, watching each other bid for fabulous items, fine

wines, and one-of-a-kind adventures that will make long-

lasting, shared memories. I ask you to raise your paddles high and bid often! İSaludos!

Welcome to With great pleasure, we welcome you back in person to ShuttleCork, an event that celebrates connoisseurship in many forms – fine wine, exceptional food, and world-class art. We are honored to co-chair this special benefit supporting The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and are delighted that it has evolved into one of the premier fundraisers in Kansas City. As in past years, the event begins with six “Winemaker Dinners” in lovely private homes, and we are most grateful to each of our hosts. This evening brings us to the Nelson-Atkins, an unparalleled setting, where guests are invited to connect with other wine enthusiasts and take part in our lively auction. We invite you to spend time looking over the details on the following pages, guaranteed to capture your own sense of connoisseurship with exciting possibilities. We express our deep appreciation to each of our fabulous Corporate Sponsors, especially Bank of America, which graciously agreed to be our Presenting Sponsor for the ninth year in a row. We extend our heartfelt thanks to the ShuttleCork committee members, along with numerous others who have contributed to these memorable evenings. Finally, we thank each of you for your passionate support of the Nelson-Atkins, our crown jewel of Kansas City and the focus of ShuttleCork.

Cheers,

The founder of Stellar Fundraising Auctions (www.StellarSF.com), Greg

This takes the cake Local baker JC Gregg, who has appeared on the Great

American Baking Show and is known for his stunning and

delicious French macarons, has prepared a gorgeous cake for

one lucky bidder and his or her table mates to enjoy during the auction. This fun and playful dessert is composed of several layers and flavors which include spongy, creamy, bubbly,

crunchy and wobbly layers, all covered with a mirror glaze. It’s a true mixed-media masterpiece, and you can work off the

calories raising your paddle for other treasures this evening. Accompanying this masterpiece with be a bottle of MOD

Selection Rosé Champagne, debuted by rapper Drake, also

known as Champagne Papi. The bottle’s sleek, warm metallic exterior is embellished with French floral accents, which is

hand-designed by artisans in Champagne to ensure no two bottles are identical. This package, to quote Drake himself, “Last name Ever, first name Greatest’.

California Cult Wine Cellar Collection The Napa Valley may be too young to have developed a

classification system, but the area’s greatest wines rival those of any region in the world. These top bottlings are often

tagged as the “Cult Wines of California,” and this lot contains rare and coveted offerings from superstars such as Harlan Estate, Bryant Family, Lokoya, and Hundred Acre.

Wine Spectator’s Robert Parker has rated one of the included wines as a 99 on his 100-point scale – a score well into the

upper echelons of his ‘Extraordinary’ category. Which wine?

We humbly suggest you try them all and see how your palate matches up.

Going Once, Going Twice, with FIRST and SUPER SECOND growth Bordeaux Ahead of the 1855 Universal Exposition in Paris, Napoleon III ranked the most storied Château of Bordeaux from First through Fifth Growth, with First Growth being the five best

estates in the region. While there is still no single producer

that tops those original five, there are several Second Growth and Right Bank Château that have reached a quality that is every bit on their level. Those wines are often referred to

as “Super Seconds.” With this lot of both First and Super

Second bottlings, you can find out for yourself who did it best.

Personally, we believe that honor goes to the winning bidder for this prized collection of world-class Bordeaux.

Italy. And a villa to call home. Set on 135 acres, this expansive six-bed (all kings), 6,5 bath San Giovanni, Tuscan Villa is surrounded by 26 acres of vineyards and seven acres of

olive groves. The sprawling residence is home to a restored, centuries-

old agricultural estate with sweeping views over the Tuscan hillsides and hilltop town of Casole d’Elsa.

The villa consists of a four-bedroom main house, a two-bedroom annex, and a wine tasting room totaling 7,450 square feet. La Caccia di San

Giovanni wine is made from the grapes on-site and you can schedule a tasting with the Italian wine team while you’re at the property.

With touches of modern design and exposed brick and stone, this

stunning space is fitting for special events, family reunions or large

groups. A central courtyard featuring a pergola, infinity pool, fire pit and

bocce court draws guests outside any time of the day for al fresco dining, sunning, exploring and relaxation.

This lot includes a tasting and lunch at Dan and Diane Hesse’s vineyard, Cerbaiona, and a Jackson Family wine tasting.

Guests will also have a special tour of the Marinelli Foundry, where the casts of the Gates of Paradise were created for Il Duomo in Florence. Best-in-class Concierge services are included to plan all excursions,

groceries, meals, local hunting, cooking classes, or a dinner cooked in the villa by your own private chef. San Giovanni captures the essence of all

that is Tuscany and is truly one of the most idyllic settings. So, rally your family or round up a group of your closest friends as you won’t want to miss this once in a lifetime vacation.

Cloister Gallery Dinner Ten couples will enjoy dinner prepared by James Beard

Award Winning Chef Kevin Nashan of Sydney Street Café and Peacemaker Lobster and Crab in St. Louis and Peacemaker

Tulsa, in one of the Nelson-Atkins’ most revered galleries, the 14th century French Cloister, paired with exquisite and highly acclaimed wines from Bryant Family.

Don and Bettina Bryant have established one of California’s premier First Growth wines, the Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, now among Napa Valley’s most

acclaimed labels. Bryant Estate wines are currently harvested, blended, and produced entirely by hand from grapes planted and grown on the original 13-acre estate, as well as on

neighboring vineyards on Howell Mountain, Las Posadas,

and Madrona. Bettina Bryant will be in attendance to lead the

group through the vintages that will be poured throughout the course of the evening.

44


Chef Nashan seamlessly incorporates his wide variety of

culinary experiences and influences into seasonal, locally sourced creations. His French training shines through his

food while his time in Spain shows its lasting impact in soulful sofrito-based dishes and the innumerable cured products in the pantry. Nashan believes that sourcing locally should be

expected, not celebrated. Nashan won a James Beard Award for Best Chef: Midwest in 2017, after being a finalist in the

category in 2014 and 2016 and a five-time semifinalist. He

has even cooked for President Barack Obama, which puts our winning bidders in lofty company. · Date: Saturday, August 27 · Buy in for 10 couples · $7,500/couple
