raleigh guide The night belongs to Nicky’s Nicky Blaine’s cocktail lounge is for those who are serious about their nightlife—and their libations. Here you don’t just order a Scotch on the rocks; you first must peruse a menu that reads like a map of Scotland, with dozens of alluring blends. The cigar selection, on the other hand, will send your mind traveling southward, with offerings from Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Cuba (pre-embargo, of course). Fine wines and beers are also available, as are late-night appetizers, both sweet and savory. Enjoy them ensconced in red velvet couches, lit by well-placed candles and sconces and serenaded by smooth jazz. At Nicky Blaine’s, the night is always young, and so are the patrons—in spirit, at least. Nicky BlaiNe’s cocktail louNge, 20 North MeridiaN st., iNdiaNapolis; 317.638.5588; www.NickyBlaiNes.coM

Hey, Mister SAND MAN One of the cooler new lines at Raleigh is Sand. It’s named not for the stuff on beaches, but for its Danish founder, creative director and CEO, Soren P. Sand. Together with his wife and creative partner Lene, he has made Sand a global fashion brand known for its sculptural silhouettes, distinctive details and marvelous fabric finishes. “We are bridging the gap between classic and casual,” Sand explains. Stop by the store to try some Sand on for size.

Dude, where’d those duds come from? It’s impossible to imagine the wardrobe of a well-dressed man that doesn’t include certain classic pieces: an overcoat, khaki trousers, a sport shirt, a tweed jacket. Of course, each of these indispensable items has a history—a moment of inspired creation, and then mass acceptance. Pinning down those moments is the work of the new book Icons of Men’s Style (Laurence King Publishing). Take, for example, the leather biker jacket, icon-ized by Marlon Brando in The Wild One. It was commissioned in 1928 by a Harley Davidson distributor who saw the need for a tough, zip-up leather jacket to protect his customers. Then there’s the trench coat, all but inseparable from one’s image of Humphrey Bogart circa Casablanca; that was first created for British army officers who oversaw the trench warfare of World War I. What about the loafer, which perhaps reached its style apotheosis when Michael Jackson moon-walked? Its inspiration is credited to the rough-hewn deerskin shoes of Native Americans. As for the modern necktie, it dates to just 1924—but its roots go back as far as Roman legionnaires of the 2nd century, who added color to their uniforms with scarf-like pieces of cloth. Even more interesting than their origins is the way these iconic pieces are reinterpreted and refreshed over the generations, by heroes, Hollywood stars and regular guys alike.

Harry & Izzy’s takes Indy Thanks to Harry Roth and Isadore “Izzy” Rosen, shrimp has had a jumbo impact on Indianapolis. So much so that the three restaurants named after the pair sell 35,000 pounds of shrimp and 5,000 pounds of horseradish each year. The two were boyhood friends who went into business together as co-owners of the famed St. Elmo’s Steak House. By the time they sold the business in 1986, St. Elmo’s was the Indianapolis landmark it remains today. In addition to its steaks, the place was renowned for its sinus-clearing St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail. Honoring the two restaurateurs, the new owners of St. Elmo’s opened a sister restaurant on the same block in, an upscale American grill named Harry & Izzy’s. It was so popular that they opened another near the Indianapolis International Airport, and then another on East 82nd St. last year, this one with a 2,700-bottle, two-story wine cellar. The best-known dish offered at the restaurants? St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail, naturally. Not only has it won food awards; the owners claim that it’s what swayed the Super Bowl selection committee to pick Indianapolis for the 2012 game. If shrimp isn’t your style but cocktails are, not to worry—Harry & Izzy’s restaurants also sell 20,000 martinis each year. HARRy & IZZy’S, 153 S.

Men love their favorite MLB teams with the fire of a thousand suns. But when it comes to commemorating that passion with a really cool collectible—well, the choices are slim. Enter THINK Pens’ line of fine MLB-themed writing instruments. Eleven teams are represented, from Angels through Yankees (if you want to say the Pittsburgh Pirates are the most important, we’re not going to argue). The pens are made of fine Italian resin and designed to echo the teams’ vintage uniforms. The vintage-style packaging is pretty cool, too. Pick up a few at Raleigh Limited.

Tangerine punch

This season, the color orange has juice. But the hue of the moment is not the in-your-face orange of your old school color, but an enticing citrus-y red that’s been dubbed “Tangerine Tango” by color house Pantone. Rare is the spring/summer 2012 collection that doesn’t include the color, from a sportcoat (Allegri) to pants and shirts (Etro) to ties (just about everybody). Traditionally, the color orange has signaled energy, activity and sociability in many cultures. This year, a splash of tangerine refreshes any look—and brightens your day as well.

ers found that up-tempo songs motivate people to push themselves harder during exercise, despite the discomfort. The ideal range is between 120 and 140 beats-per-minute, about as fast as dance music, according to studies at Brunel University in England. Frequently mentioned examples: Green Day’s “American Idiot”, the Killers’ “Mr. Brightside”, Kanye West’s “Gold Digger” and “Gonna Fly Now,” the theme from the first Rocky movie. Then there’s the favorite of Olympic gold medalist Haile Gebrselassie: the techno song “Scatman” by Scatman John. Don’t feel like putting together your own play-list? Check out HellaSound. com, which sells 30-minute instrumental songs written specifically for running—with “pacecentric rhythms and driving riffs.”

TRUNK SHOWS Just what is a trunk show? In the old days of fashion retailing, manufacturers’ representatives would visit stores with trunks filled with their latest creations. The store owner would choose the items customers wanted most. Today, we do most of our selection at designer’s showrooms, but the trunk show lives on. During these special events, you’ll have a chance to purchase items including hidden treasures we may have passed over. The hours for trunk shows are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

WHERE THE SHOE FITS Goodman’s Shoes, serving Indianapolis feet since 1913, is a different kind of shoe store. “We understand feet issues and we know how to fit properly,” says owner Gary Goodman. “We custom-fit, we specialorder and we find the perfect match for a person’s particular feet and tastes, from children through grandfathers. Our sales force combined has more than 100 years of experience.” It’s that individualized service that matters. “I personally won’t let somebody get something that doesn’t fit,” says Goodman firmly. “I just won’t allow it.”

Let’s Keep It Clean

Answers to your questions about cleaning fine garments How do I remove ballpoint ink from my shirt or pants? Fittingly for such a common problem, you can use any of several ordinary products: hairspray, rubbing alcohol (test fabric first) or glycerine (a thick, colorless liquid available in drugstores). If you’re dealing with a non-washable fabric, blot with a clean cloth to get out as much of the ink as possible. Then, get thee to a dry cleaner posthaste! For washables, put a few drops on the spot and keep dabbing with a cotton ball or clean cloth as the ink comes out. Next, gently rub a mild detergent and a drop or two of water on the spot; form suds and rinse. For particularly stubborn stains, make a paste of water and baking soda, and leave it on the spot for five minutes, then rub and rinse.

light and airy, said fibers are also stiff, leading to linen’s trademark wrinkles. Depending on how structured your linen jacket is, it may need to be dry-cleaned, or it may do fine with a gentle cycle or hand wash (check the label). Let it dry naturally, and—this is key—iron while


it’s still damp. Finally, learn to love a certain amount of wrinkles in linen; it’s part of the fabric’s debonair charm. What’s the best way to care for my tuxedo? Experts agree that storage is a major factor in tuxedo care.

Bold Styles By Isaia Impeccable tailoring and attention to detail are hallmarks of the Neapolitan sartorial tradition, a heritage the Isaia label proudly upholds. Not content merely to live up to past glories, though, Isaia also reinterprets tradition to make it relevant for what it calls the “New Gentlemen.” That would be the sort of men who are comfortable with admiring glances, for Isaia is known for its bold and confident styles. This season’s collection features “a new kind of blue,” drawing inspiration from the hues of the sea and sky so prominent in Naples. Fashioned in light cottons, open weaves and sprightly silks, the clothes sport lighthearted checks and bright plaids—often accented by splashes of sunny yellows. Catch Isaia’s modern spirit yourself at Raleigh.

SUITE DREAMS With its brick-and-terra cotta exterior and regal golden canopy, The Canterbury Hotel has a well-deserved aura of old-world tradition. Inside the boutique-style hotel, though, the amenities are very much of the moment. The Canterbury’s 99 elegantly appointed rooms—including five bi-level Penthouse Suites and one Presidential Suite—give patrons access to all manner of business, concierge and secretarial services. Just downstairs is the award-winning Turner’s Restaurant, with innovative American and Continental cuisine and a carefully curated wine list. “In a world filled with cookie-cutter products and services, I believe there are people who still search for original ideas and unique experiences,” says Turner Woodward, the property’s owner. If that sounds like your cup of tea, check out the Canterbury Hotel—specifically, at 4 p.m., when seatings for afternoon tea begin.

dean martin

this golden-voiced, nattily attired rat packer took pains to appear effortless. By Timothy Kelley of movie sets and nightclub stages. and singer-actor-comedian dean Martin had it. he showed us all the merits of taking life easy, even when it isn’t. Born dino paul crocetti in 1917 to italian-immigrant parents in the tough steel town of steubenville, ohio, he dropped out of high school and fought in a dozen boxing matches as “kid crochet.” “i won all but eleven,” he quipped. switching to softer labor, Martin served as a croupier for blackjack games in a local gambling den. But he also liked to sing and bought all of Bing crosby’s records in order to emulate the great crooner. (later, his own singing would influence a young Mississippian named presley.) after moving from the gambling tables to the microphone at a columbus nightclub for his first paid musical gig, he borrowed operatic tenor nino Martini’s surname—then shortened it at a bandleader’s suggestion. sometimes Fate boils down to what nightclub you’re in and when. in new york’s clubs, Martin met two people who would change his life. one was singer Frank sinatra, whose place he took at an east side club called the riobamba. unfortunately, Martin rio-bombed, though Frankie became a lifelong pal. then there was a fellow performer at the glass hat, a hyperkinetic kid from new Jersey named Jerry lewis. the first Martin-lewis performance—at atlantic city’s 500 club—was reputedly such a disaster that the club’s boss told them to get new material or get lost. desperate, the baritone Martin and the whiny-voiced lewis tossed out their script and improvised. it worked. they went on to a decade as moviedom’s hottest comic duo. soon they were getting new material, all right—shopping for tuxedos that a top philadelphia tailor warned them would cost a then-princely $200 a pop. “With or without hangers?” Martin deadpanned. the singer’s good looks, funny bone and unflappable demeanor clicked with the public, and with women. (Martin was married three times and had seven kids.) after he split with lewis in 1956, he parlayed his talent and easygoing style into a smash nightclub, tV and film career of his own, while remaining impeccably attired. “on stage,” writes biographer Michael Freedland, “there was always a tuxedo that cost up to about $3,000 a throw (and he had a dozen of them), a superbly pressed shirt, a bowtie and a red handkerchief in his breast pocket. that was his uniform.” in the early ’60s, Martin belonged to the famously dapper and fun-loving rat pack with sinatra, sammy davis Jr., Joey Bishop and peter lawford. in clubs, in films and in off hours this gang clowned and played pranks—once, for example, he stuffed sinatra’s dressing room with inflated balloons. “everybody loves somebody sometime,” as Martin’s signature song declared. But not everyone gets to enshrine his face and figure in the pantheon of fun. “dino” did, and— though we lost him in 1995—he goes right on inspiring us. true, no matter what care we take with our devil-may-care appearance, we won’t all have a voice like honeyed heaven and the ability to crack up a room without breaking a bead of sweat. But isn’t it worth the effort to try? 28

Named for a legendary bull whose fight made him part of folklore, the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is a relentless force on the road.

By David Masello

Designs that defy time: The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 looks right at home as it spins by the Colosseum in Rome. It replaces the 10-yearold Murciélago as the flagship vehicle in the automaker’s lineup. Described as “a bull taming 700 horses,” the Aventador easily exceeded its stated top speed of 217 mph in recent tests. 59

Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer, Simon Property Group Something happens whenever I walk into Raleigh. I might think I’m going to the store to just graze, as I call it, perhaps look for a shirt or sweater. Maybe try on a new jacket from Isaia or Zegna or the brand of suit that works best on my build, Corneliani. But when I’m there, I start to go a little crazy, sometimes buying three, four suits at a time. I’ll start throwing in multiple pairs of pants and a variety of shirts. When I see what’s on display and when Mark Koplow starts pulling out items he knows I’m going to like, I just give in to power shopping. Of course, I need suits because I wear one every day to the office. It’s not a sartorial rule there to dress up, but it is my personal preference. Not only do I consider it more in keeping with the executive office, but I also find it far easier to put a shirt and tie together with a suit. It’s on casual Fridays that I tend to stumble, not always being able to figure out what’s casual versus what’s dressy and whether you can combine the two. Mark feeds my obsession—and it’s not one I’m willing to give up. I often run into Mark on the golf course. And you knowwhat? While Mark may be a master at picking out clothes I’ll like, I’m a better golfer. Don’t get me wrong, Mark is making some progress. Maybe I should play him for a suit or two.

I’m not your typical farmer, at least in the way I dress. But like any farmer, I work a lot of hours because the agriculture industry is the starting point of the process of feeding the world. At the office, I dress in jeans and a ball cap. When I go out to town or to my customer meetings, or to conventions, I wear a suit or trendy sportcoat with what I call a button-up. You’ll find me in a Corneliani sportcoat or a Versace suit with a double vent, which I prefer because it gives me more flexibility and comfort when I move around. As for the button-ups, I buy all the brands in lots of fun and different colors and prints, plus fun purples, blues, greys, pinks and silvers. I have them tailored at Raleigh to make them especially slim-fitting. For shoes, I wear Mezlan and Bacco Bucci, because both brands are trendy, classy and comfortable. I have a strong business connection with Raleigh in that both my business and theirs are family-owned, and we are both competing against the giants in our industry. Plus I’ve never found a store anywhere that matches the service or the small-town, welcoming feel of Raleigh.

There was a time when I hadn’t visited Raleigh in several months. The moment I walked in, I said to Gerry Moreau and Mark Koplow, “I need some suits.” They took one look at me and said, “You sure do.” Their shocked response was because I’d lost 70 pounds in an effort to get fit. On that day, we spent a couple of hours together, and I ordered three Isaia suits, several pairs of pants from Hickey Freeman, Corneliani and Zegna, along with sportcoats and shirts. I know the brands I like, but I wear whatever Mark and Gerry say looks good on me. I’ve been shopping at Raleigh for 10 years, and I remember being there once and spotting a beautiful Luciano Barbera overcoat, a kind of country gentleman’s coat. But I didn’t need it, plus I was there to buy other items. At the

Dr. Joseph Riina Orthopedic Spinal Surgeon, Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital end of the season, Gerry called my wife and told her about the jacket I had admired. She gave it to me for Christmas. It’s that kind of attention, their remembering that jacket, that keeps me going to the store. Most of my clothes, those that I wear for seeing patients and those I put on for weekends, such as Georg Roth shirts, come from Raleigh. But my whole family and I are into martial arts, my two sons, 11 and 13, are both black belts. We all wear the classic Gi uniform. That’s probably the only item of clothing I have that doesn’t come from Raleigh.

The unspoiled Costa Navarino invites visitors back to a time when the gods ruled Greece. By Andrew Myers

On the west coast of the Peloponnese lies the great fortress of Methoni. The protected harbor it guards was coveted by warring nations in antiquity. 29

3/23/12 12:11 PM

The Anax Lounge, above, is the main gathering place at The Romanos, featuring a pianist and tea, tapas and signature cocktails. The lounge’s terrace affords panoramic views of sunset over the Ionian Sea. At right, a pool and pavilion at The Romanos, where guests can swim up for a cool drink under the warm sun. Many suites feature individual infinity pools.

I gaze out at the Ionian Sea, beyond the stretches of pure white sand, past olive and fig trees, citrus groves, fragrant gardens and low stone buildings that embody classical proportion and reflect the glory of me—mighty Zeus. I am king of the gods, ruler of Olympus, master of humankind … But wait! Where are my attributes: my golden eagle and libidinous bull, my oak and my thunderbolt? Oh, Hera! With that the reverie ends. Fortunately I’m not recovering from a psychotic break; I’m simply enjoying a very realistic fantasy inspired by The Romanos. Situated in the region of Messinia in the unspoiled southwest corner of the Peloponnese peninsula, the 321-room hotel opened last year, a temple of R&R as well as the headliner of Costa Navarino, a 2,500acre resort that is Olympian in ambition and scope. The resort seeks to transform an eye-poppingly picturesque but very quiet corner of Greece into a new, sophisticated European Riviera—and to do so sustainably, harmoniously and with sensitivity (it was, after all, Aristotle who advocated the golden mean). Nor is “temple” too strong an evocation. After driving into Navarino Dunes—321 acres of landscaped grounds that decline gently to a 1-kilometer stretch of sand along the clear Ionian Sea—you arrive at the openair lobby. Its dramatic height is emphasized by low modern furniture (much of it inspired by ancient Greek design, such as the klismos chair). 42


Gazing at the lobby’s simple but grand wood-beamed pediment, and its series of limestone columns framing a view of the brilliant sky, few would not feel as if they’ve been transported to a higher state of being. Transporting oneself to different planes and places is easy in the Peloponnese (which, since the digging of the Corinth Canal in 1893, isn’t technically a peninsula but an island). The area offers an all-terrain cata-

log of topographies—sun-drenched valleys to snowy mountain ranges to miles of beaches, and a distinctive coastline with four small south-pointing peninsulas that give the island the appearance of a hand (or a maple leaf). All told, the Peloponnese measures 8,320 square miles—which might sound big until you realize all major destinations are within 125 miles or several hours on new, well-marked highways and major byways. The place is also replete with history. Just to read a map of the island and see the names “Sparta” and “Corinth” conjure history and Western Civilization classes, mythology and legend. Among the can’t-miss archaeological destinations are Mycenae, a UNESCO World Heritage site with its famous Lion Gate; Olympia, where the ancient Olympic Games were held in honor of Zeus; the healing center of Epidaurus with its huge theater (also a UNESCO World Heritage site); and, of course, the ruins found in contemporary Sparta and Corinth. Should one wish to fastforward a millennium to the glories of the Byzantine, fortress towns such as Monemvasia and Mystras—an astounding complex of fortifications and frescoes named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1989—are certain to inspire. And they are but the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Regardless of where these daytrips take you, make sure to seize the opportunity to enjoy a simple lunch in any of the small towns and villages that takes your fancy. Directions are easy because they’re always the same: Travel to the main square, select a shady taverna (there’s usually more than one, and all are usually good), and order from favorites 44


such as avgolemono soup, the catch of the day or lamb fricassee. (If you’re in the mountains near Tripoli, add stifado, beef with pearl onions, and arni psito, lamb on the spit, to your watch list; and in Sparta and its environs, bardouniotiko, chicken stuffed with cheese, olives and walnuts, is a specialty. ) Of course, there’s also much to see and do in Messinia itself. An ancient land, it’s mentioned by name in the Iliad, the epic poem that ranks as among the oldest extant works of Western literature. No surprise, then, that the region boasts several antique showstoppers of its own, such as those found at Messene, with its stadion, for running events and odeon for performances. Travel 16 miles southeast of that ancient Hellenic city-state,

and you arrive in Kalamata, the region’s seaside capital famous for its signature olives but boasting a notable medieval hilltop castle as well. Or if the roughly 56-mile trip from Costa Navarino Dunes to Messene seems too much on a sunny day, an easy alternative is nearby Pylos—famous for two naval battles separated by over 2,200 years. Close to Pylos along the coast are several gorgeous beaches, including Voidokoilia (a mile-long beach that is just short of a perfect circle), as well as the Gialova wetlands, one of the finest birding areas in Europe with no few than 225 migrating species, including the flamingo and imperial eagle. Not that it’s ever easy leaving Costa Navarino, which consists of The Romanos and another five-star hotel (The Westin Resort, which sits further inland), two golf courses (The Dunes and the Bay Courses, the first signature golf courses in Greece), and the Anazoe Spa measuring over 13,000 square feet (with several treatments based on antique practices inscribed on clay tablets found in nearby ruins). There’s even an agora or “village center” with shops (international brands as well as curated local products), a library, cafes and restaurants. Among these is Omega, which

offers a menu based on the fatty acid-rich Omega diet made popular by Dr. Artemis Simopoulos, an American of Greek descent. Costa Navarino was the dream of “Captain” Vassilis Constantakopoulos. A self-made Messinia native who built the largest fleet of container ships in the world before expanding into a host of other industries, he died last year at age 76—but not before the resort’s inauguration. What must it be like to imagine a project on such a scale—and what must be the satisfaction at seeing it completed? Striding through my room at The Romanos, moving past the solid woods, marbles and limestone that provide a sublime shell for modern furniture with ancient design elements, I move onto the deck. Stepping past the fireplace and open-air lounge, I submerge myself in my private infinity plunge pool. Nestling my head atop my hands at the edge of the water, I look out at the timeless Ionian Sea and, listening to the quiet, begin to dream. n Andrew Myers writes frequently about culture and travel. He admits that he is never mistaken for a Greek god. s p r i N g • s u m m E r 2 0 12 33

Designing interiors is very similar to designing clothing: The same fundamentals of quality, balance, proportion and taste are crucial to both. BY TREATING A SPACE LIKE A WARDROBE, ROOMS

can be created that are fresh and original. Possibilities to individualize details, colors, and shapes are endless. Dress a space as you would a person. Surround yourself with color combinations and textures that are flattering to you and your personality. Look to fashion magazines for style that speaks to you. There is so much artistic talent on the fashion runways and elsewhere, it’s a shame not to use these great ideas in our homes. In today’s mass-produced world, everything tends to look more and more alike. If someone compliments you on a clothing item it is usually because it is different, beautifully made or flattering. It’s the same with interiors. I hope to show how couture-inspired details, combined with bespoke objects, can transform a space into something extraordinary. —Frank Roop Photo © Eric Roth From The New Bespoke by Frank Roop © Pointed Leaf Press

Set amid New Zealand’s rugged landscape, Cape Kidnappers is a thrill ride of a course that straddles chalk cliffs and offers stunning views of Hawke’s Bay. By Paul Rogers


common gag gifts for golfers were calendars illustrated with fantasy golf holes: a tee box perched on the roof of a skyscraper and a green set atop a barge passing in the harbor below or a sliver of fairway in the thick of a redwood forest. Well, those whimsical renderings of imaginary holes don’t seem so outlandish anymore. That’s because the golf course development boom of the 1990s and early 2000s produced a number of layouts—nestled in desert canyons, strung along ski slopes—that appeared to defy the possible. None, though, stretches the imagination more than Cape Kidnappers, an eye-stopper of a course whose holes unfurl over giant claws of land on the North Island of New

Zealand in the late ’70s while he was taking a break from Wall Street to write a novel. Nothing came of his literary foray—back in New York two years later, Robertson founded Tiger Management Corp., which would become at one time the world’s largest hedge fund. But the couple remained enamored of this unspoiled and far-off land. In its early years, Cape Kidnappers had no lodging on site for golfers, a deficiency the Robertsons addressed by building The Farm at Cape Kidnappers, an elegantly rustic lodge and spa. The accommodations include four suites adjoining the main lodge, 18 additional suites in a series of wellsituated outbuildings, and a private owner’s cottage. As exhilarating as it is to tee off at Cape Kidnappers, there is far more to do than play golf. The property is home to the world’s largest mainland colony of gannets, the needle-billed, pointed-winged seabirds that swoop and dive at great speeds for their prey; guests can take guided tours of the habitat. The resort also offers a “Kiwi Walk,” on which to explore the property with an on-site naturalist to track and interact with the endangered northern brown kiwi. The region that encompasses Cape Kidnappers, Hawke’s Bay, has made a name for itself in wine-producing circles, thanks to its ample sunshine and long, cool growing season. Guests of the resort can tour the vineyards on bicycle, hopping from cellar to cellar to sample the local Chardonnay, Syrah and blends of Cabernet and Merlot.

To be sure, though, golf remains the first and foremost reason to plan a journey to Cape Kidnappers. Doak’s courses are known for being playable rather than penal, and this one, despite the wild terrain and the fierce, shifting breezes off the ocean, hews to that theme. The fairways provide plenty of room to accommodate shots pushed and pulled by the wind. Naturally, the most dramatic holes at Cape Kidnappers are those that play out to the sea. Number 12, known as “Infinity,” is a par-4 of 460 yards that bends right off the tee and then left into a green that’s perched at the end of a narrow ridge, silhouetted by the bay. Peril lurks along the entire left side. Cape Kidnappers had its coming-out party by hosting the Kiwi Challenge, an exhibition of rising Tour stars held in 2008 and 2009. The players couldn’t get over the beauty of the course—or the buffeting winds. Sean O’Hair, the 2009 runner-up, marveled at how the drives the pros hit into wind on the par-5 15th went no more than 230 or 240 yards. Those struck with the wind on the following hole traveled as far as 400 yards, prompting O’Hair to say, “Basically, you just need to get your driver or whatever club airborne and it’s going to go for miles.” Hunter Mahan, who won the 2008 event, had high praise for Cape Kidnappers. “On almost every shot, you are looking straight out into the ocean,” he said. “It’s a different world.” One that’s real, though, not merely imagined.

high chappellet Pritchard hill, the chappellet family’s high-altitude napa vineyard, consistently produces standout cabernet sauvignon. By Ted Loos To look aT iT from afar, PriTchard hill isn’T

that much different than any other bit of spectacular mountaintop napa scenery—rocky, dun-colored and studded with live oaks. But donn and molly chappellet thought it had the potential to yield great Bordeauxstyle wines when they picked it in the late 1960s as the home for chappellet Vineyard & Winery. That’s because andre Tchelistcheff, the famous winemaker and consultant, had recommended high-altitude grape growing to donn as a way to get concentration and rich tannins into red wines. Pritchard hill seemed the right place to experiment. “dad had to give up the bigger yield of loweraltitude vineyards,” says Jon-mark chappellet, one of the couple’s two sons, who now manages the winery, “but to him it made sense.” (Tchelistcheff had advised keeping production small to maintain quality.) “mountain grapes were not common knowledge at the time in napa. You have to remember, there were only 30 wineries in the valley back then; now there are 400.” The experiment was an unqualified success, and now chappellet has been in the forefront of napa wine for more than 40 years. The critic hugh Johnson put it this way: “chappellet is wine lovers’s wine: eloquent to the sentient.” in 2012 the winery plays official host to the napa Valley Wine auction, an honor because it 68

Wildflower-filled meadows dot Pritchard Hill, where for 45 years, Donn and Molly Chappellet have maintained the natural integrity of their property.

is the area’s number one event of the year. The operation is still family-run: Jon-Mark’s brother, Cyril, handles sales and marketing, and his sister, Carissa, the legal affairs. Donn and Molly are officially retired, although Molly continues to publish cookbooks and operate as a Napa lifestyle guru. “We’ve gravitated toward certain parts of the business and specialized,” notes Jon-Mark. Chappellet now makes four wines from its 100 acres of certified-organic vineyards—a Chardonnay and three reds, most famously its flagship high-end entry, Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, which is made from a single vineyard (the estate’s original one). That is the wine that reflects the terroir of the winery’s home base. The particularities of the soil and the vineyard’s exposure to the sun mean that the organically farmed grapes could make for super-dense and off-putting wine; yet expert winemaker Philip Corallo-Titus has learned to manage the natural tannins to create something silky and sophisticated. Pritchard Hill is technically a blend, since the Cabernet is mixed with smaller amounts of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec, depending on the vintage. That recipe is the one made famous by red Bordeaux, and the Chappellets have always had the great chateaux of that region as their guiding stars. The vintages vary, but not by too much—the signature style of ripe fruit and a firm body comes through year after year. “We want to keep the blend as consistent as possible,” says Jon-Mark. For more than 40 years, this family winery has been making good on that promise. 70

hail to the

vizsla Folks have been fans of the noble vizsla (vizh-la), also known as the Hungarian pointer, since the Middle Ages. A favorite of barons and warlords, the vizsla itself has the mien of an aristocrat with its high cheekbones, sturdy

bearing and golden coat. But it also has another welcome attribute: being an exceptionally hard worker, and that work includes hunting, tracking, pointing and retrieving. Bred to be a gun dog, the vizsla is known to its fond owners as the “Velcro dog” because of its determination to stick close by its master. And that master had better have a lot of energy, because vizlas certainly do. They need a long walk (think six miles) or lots of running time every day, and have been known to jump a six-foot fence. If you’re a hiker, runner or swimmer, a vizsla will be your faithful partner in fitness—and an affectionate, intelligent companion when day is done. Qualities that, for a dog lover, are very much on point.
