Each year, the proceeds from this wonderful event benefit the clients of Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired by providing funds for our services for individuals threatened by loss of independence due to moderate or severe vision impairment. Since 1983, Vintage Affaire has contributed nearly $9 million, helping to ensure that Vista Center can continue its important work serving over 2,500 children, adults, and family members in our community each year. This wonderful tradition brings to you the premier wines of our participating vintners and delicious appetizers from our area’s best chefs. We encourage you to bid generously on our spectacular auction items, both during the silent and live auctions. Your participation helps us support our mission to empower our clients to embrace life to the fullest. We extend our sincere gratitude to Amanda George, chair of Vintage Affaire 2017, and to every one of the many volunteers who have worked tirelessly for the past twelve months to make this day a success. We would also like to thank each of our underwriters, patrons, pouring vintners, chefs, and the many businesses and individuals who have contributed to the auction this year. Please take time to personally thank them as you see them throughout the day. On behalf of the entire Board of Directors of Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired, I thank you for your support of the life-changing work of Vista Center and wish you a most enjoyable day at the 35th annual Vintage Affaire.

EXECUTIVE CHEF OCEAN ORSSTEN Oveja Negra 355 Santana Row, San Jose 408.423.5400 http://www.ovejanegrasj.com/

At Hotel Valencia, Chef Ocean creates a farm-to-table menu that is both local and sustainable, offering food that is approachable, satisfying, fun and intelligent; he likes to call this “modern global cuisine.” Ocean is a believer that food should make the soul happy, as happy people cook truly memorable and delicious dishes. Chef Ocean grew up 45 minutes north of Napa Valley on five acres in Lake County where at a young age he developed a deep respect for agriculture. At the age of 12, Ocean tried his hand at raising young Duroc, Hampshire and Berkshire pigs for auction through FFA (Future Farmers of America); he also enjoyed unlimited bacon and pork chops at home. At 15 years old, Ocean obtained his first job in a commercial kitchen as a dishwasher in hopes he would be able to prove to his Chef-Owner that he was worthy enough to work the hot line; this indeed came to fruition after only a week. It was at this 30-seat restaurant that Ocean decided to devote his life to the culinary arts; all he wanted to do was cook food that people would enjoy. In 2007, Ocean graduated from CCA (California Culinary Academy) in San Francisco. After graduation, Chef Ocean went on to work at some of the Bay Area’s most prestigious restaurants and hotels which included Michael Mina Arcadia, Carnelian Room in San Francisco, La Folie of San Francisco and the Taj Campton Place SF, in which he was a part of a team that earned a Michelin star. Chef Ocean Orssten joined the Valencia Group in 2011.

PASTRY CHEF ROSALYNN VU Oveja Negra 355 Santana Row, San Jose 408.423.5400 http://www.ovejanegrasj.com

A graduate of the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, Rosalynn has worked at the San Jose Marriott – Arcadia, and studied under a classically-trained French pastry chef, at the Four Seasons Palo Alto. There she created everything in-house, from breads and pastries to banquet desserts and a la carte restaurant delicacies. She also helped open the Vesu restaurant in Walnut Creek as the pastry chef, which paved her way to joining the team at Hotel Valencia Santana Row. After dedicating her life to academics and feeling the stress of research papers, Rosalynn began to bake in order to find peace. She likes to make her desserts from scratch, and frequently chopped her own chips from chocolate blocks instead of using prepackaged chips during her childhood. Rosalynn’s love of baking remains, and she enjoys using local ingredients whenever possible. At Hotel Valencia, Rosalynn uses the freshest seasonal ingredients to handcraft desserts that not only look delicate and beautiful, but have substance and flavor. Her favorite items to make are ice cream and sherbets.

CHEF/OWNER CRAIG STOLL Delfina Restaurant Group 651 Emerson, Palo Alto 650-353-2208

James Beard Award Winner and critically acclaimed chef, Craig Stoll, might be a New York native and a San Franciscan at heart, but it's his love and respect for soulful Italian cooking that have come to define him. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America and working through some of San Francisco's finest restaurants, Craig was awarded a scholarship to attend the ICIF cooking school in Torino, Italy. There it was an externship at Tuscany’s one-Michelin-star restaurant Da Delfina that paved his vision. He returned to San Francisco and in 1998, along with his wife Annie Stoll, opened Delfina, a relatively casual 50-seat restaurant located in the still up-and-coming Mission District, serving rustic Italian food infused with San Francisco’s local and sustainable values. Delfina quickly became a major dining destination, bringing people from all over to try Craig’s cooking including signature dishes like the Fresh Grilled Calamari, Insalata di Campo and Spaghetti and demanding the restaurant's expansion to 85-seats. This ultimately garnered him a place as one of Food & Wine’s “Best New Chefs” in 2001 and Best Chef: Pacific from the James Beard Foundation in 2010. In 2005, the Stoll’s opened their first Pizzeria Delfina next door, following up with a second location in Pacific Heights in 2009 and two more down on the Peninsula in Burlingame and Palo Alto in 2014. And with the addition of Locanda, an upscale Roman Osteria & Bar complete with artisanal cocktails, Craig solidified his reputation as one of the country’s most dynamic and influential chefs.

The wines are elegant, refined and harmonious, offering aromatic complexity and layers of dense, rich, ripe, fresh fruit, with velvety textures and long finishes. Cheval Blanc is the most renowned, sought after producer in the St. Emilion appellation. The famed estate of Cos d’Estournel, a second growth, is well worth a first growth.

Lucien Peyraud, who ran the property from 1941 to 1982, is referred to as the priest of Mourvèdre and the Grandfather of Bandol. Now run by his sons, the legend continues thanks to the clay and limestone soils and winemaking expertise responsible for the production of world class wines. Lucien’s wife, Lulu is considered to be the mother of French bourgeois cooking. Bandol’s Cuvée La Tourtine, a blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan,
