WHITE STALLION RANCH

White Stallion Ranch was originally built in the 1900’s and began as a cattle ranch. The original property was constructed of Mexican adobe brick made of mud and straw. During the renovation, wire and horseshoes were found in the walls. A small area of the original adobe is on display in the dining room, the original building on the ranch. Homesteaded by David Young in 1936 – 1939, Young became the first deeded owner of the property. Herbert and Vine Bruning purchased the ranch in 1939 to ranch cattle, chickens and turkeys. They changed the name to CB Bar Ranch and it was once home to 30,000 birds. In 1945, Max Zimmerman (a Chicago liquor store owner) bought the ranch and moved West to become part of the 100 strong guest ranch industry in Tucson. Max named the ranch the MZ Bar Ranch and constructed six buildings complete with kitchenettes for guests. These buildings are still standing but several renovations later they no longer resemble the original guest room interiors. In 1949, Mary Varner purchased the property, continuing to operate it as a Guest Ranch, she also offered long-term rentals to the nearby Marana Army Airfield. 1959 was the year Brew and Marge Towne, of Cape Cod, Massachusetts fulfilled their dream of owning a Guest Ranch. They re-named the ranch White Stallion, even though they wanted to name it The Black Stallion. They quickly realized that “BS Ranch” sported a negative connotation and White Stallion has stood the test of time.

In 1965, Allen and Cynthia True came from Colorado to make the ranch their home, with Russell, just five years old and Michael still in a crib. The ranch consisted of 17 rooms, 17 horses and 200 acres. The number of Guest Ranches left in the area had dropped to about 30, most were casualties of Tucson’s Urban Sprawl. With an eye toward the future, Allen and Cynthia began purchasing adjacent land as it became available, increasing the ranch to 3,000 acres. Today, the ranch offers 43 rooms and a 5 bedroom Hacienda as guest accommodations. While maintaining the traditions of the West with many of the original buildings still in use, Russell and Michael have added sunken tennis courts, a movie theater, a new pool and hot tub area with a serenity patio, lighted sport courts a spa area and fitness center. They have established one of the largest privately owned herds of horses in Arizona and a large herd of cattle. The rest, as they say – is history, today you’ll meet the third generation of Trues – working side by side with their sleeves rolled up, serving guests in the family tradition. Today, The White Stallion Ranch is simply one of the very best ranches in America with an outstanding service that makes all the difference. We have chosen to feature the amazing individuals who are making this place so special.

In 1741, Moravian Brethren built Bethlehem’s first house on the site of what is now the Historic Hotel Bethlehem. Then, in 1794, the Moravians, famous for their hospitality, built what became the Eagle Hotel. The hotel has hosted world leaders and renowned celebrities over the years, including Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, the 14th Dalai Lama, Amelia Earhart, Harry Connick, Jr., and many more. The town’s history as a colonial religious settlement to an industrial icon is chronicled in eight George Gray murals that have hung in the hotel since 1937. And located in the heart of Historic Moravian Bethlehem, a National Historic Landmark District, the Historic Hotel Bethlehem is walking distance to museums, historic sites, and boutique shops.

“We chose the rolling hills of the Willamette Valley of Oregon for a reason. The climate and environment of the region are unique, with daily fluctuations in temperatures and rainfall. One year is wet and cold, the next is dry and warm. We celebrate the eccentricities and unpredictability of nature, and want our wines to reflect this remarkable terroir. While each vintage retains underlying similarities, we let each year’s grapes speak for themselves. Because we respect the natural power of the land, we farm organically and sustainably to grow grapes that are delicious and that celebrate the environment. Our vineyards are dry-farmed, meaning there’s no irrigation. Flâneur vines have to work hard to reach for water, building character and strength—for more intense flavor and aroma.”

BHAKTA SPIRITS Vintage Bhakta: The tale of Booze’s brash Tycoon

The Face of America Magazine

Raj Peter Bhakta is a spirits mogul on a mission. The objective? Revive an ancient collection of spirits, reverse the fortunes of a forgotten corner of rural Vermont, and reignite the spark of American optimism— helping a nation find its spirit anew through the appreciation of the oldest drinks on earth. It sounds ambitious because it is. Impossible?

No. With his signature bravado, the larger-than-life entrepreneur has staked his own fortune on a vision as vast, complex, and exquisite as the vintage spirits which bear his name: BHAKTA Armagnac.

The Face of America Magazine

The son of immigrants, Raj was born in Philadelphia, where his father had landed with just fifty bucks in his pocket—before rising quickly from pumping gas to owning a successful set of ventures in the car business. Born in a quickly deindustrializing but once-great city surrounded by cars (and now possessing collection of vintage vehicles which includes the iconic 1933 Lincoln that Franklin Delano Roosevelt rode to his first presidential inauguration), Raj’s first memories were a contradiction of wonders: the greatness of our past, the pessimism of our present. Like many idealists, Raj’s first inclination was to seek fame; unlike most, he found it. After a role on Season Two of The Apprentice that saw him get “fired” by Donald J. Trump, Raj became a frequent cable news commentator on CNN and Fox. From there, he ran for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 13th district—and lost. Badly.

The Face of America Magazine

Bhakta absconded to Vermont, where he bought a decrepit dairy farm, vowing to bring it back to life. His father wasn’t impressed. “The Bhaktas came to America to get away from the farm,” his father told him at the time. “Not to see you go back to it.” But the younger Bhakta had a mission: from that farm, he declared, he’d create the biggest spirits brand in America, stick it to the Big Alcohol Monopoly, and build the fortune he needed to do some good in the world. The only problem? He had no experience in the booze business. (Not that that would stop him.) From that downon-its-luck farm, Bhakta launched WhistlePig Whiskey. . . which, with the help of legendary Master Distiller Dave Pickerell—”The Founding Father of American Craft Spirits”—went on to single handedly turn “luxury rye whiskey” from a contradictionin-terms to a household name. WhistlePig became a titan of the whiskey world, a defining example of spirits entrepreneurship, and a “unicorn brand” valued at well over a billion dollars.

The Face of America Magazine

Raj exited his stake in 2017. Buoyed by the win, he dreamed bigger than ever before, setting out on a global sabbatical in search of the next big thing in drinks. His travels brought him to Japan, Scotland, Columbia, India, and the Caribbean. . . but it was in France, through a series of improbable coincidences, that he discovered his excalibur: the oldest, rarest, and most valuable collection of spirits on earth. This ancient cellar contained single vintage Armagnac brandy spanning three centuries and dating all the way back to 1868. It had survived world wars, been hidden from invading armies, and had witnessed the rise and fall of empires. Its existence in the present day was nothing short of miraculous. Months of tense negotiation later, Bhakta bought the whole thing—and took the 1700’s château in the deal. He would revive that historic property too, he declared. And then, as if he hadn’t just made the biggest bet of his career, he doubled down: back in Vermont, he bought an entire college campus—the recently bankrupted Green Mountain College. He moved his young family to the President’s House. He moved his car collection to the gymnasium. And then he began moving his collection of ancient Armagnac into the college’s library, Griswold.

The Face of America Magazine

Curious to try the rarest, oldest spirits on earth? Go to bhaktaspirits.com to shop the collection and acquire an exquisite bottle to appreciate now (or to save for its financial appreciation later, as there is no rarer asset in the world of spirits.

STONE

Stone by Mercer Project is thoughtfully crafted, the collections embrace natural forms and boast irregular outer surfaces that you wouldn’t typically find in dinnerware, adding an amazingly artistic and pleasing touch. Currently available on Amazon and launching with the detail collection, the uniqueness of this set comes from the reactive glaze that gives each piece its own individual look. Various tones of color can be found within the same set as a result of the glaze's reaction to the firing heat. No dish is exactly alike, enhancing the feeling of exclusivity. Nachum's work is motivated by his belief in human equality; he considers everyone to be equal and entitled to the freedom to live the life they choose. The organic shapes, tactile cues, and hand carved inspirational notes are all evidence of human touch, and illustrate his process. Each carving and irregularity respects the simplicity of organic forms. We honor the importance that stoneware bears in our everyday lives, bringing people together at the dining table.
