Those bidding or sending inquiries should refer to this auction as Sale #0609 “SEAMUS”
September, 2006

I am airborne as I write, en route to Napa Valley to catalog a collection to be featured in the October auction. While
there, I will be attending a winery party to celebrate the harvest. The contents of this auction represent our own bon
vendange, the largest and best yet for our amazing team. The auction is brimming with great classic Bordeaux and
Burgundy, cutting-edge cult wines from California, and exceedingly rare oversize bottles, such as the Methuselah of
Cuvée Cathelin, J.L. Chave 1998 and jeroboam of Romanée-Conti 1995. This will be our second two-day auction,
with action-packed sessions on both Friday and Saturday.

Some might consider us a "regional" auction house, reliant solely on buyers and sellers in the Midwest, but this
auction clearly illustrates the scope of our clientele. Consignors come from 30 cities in 16 states, spanning the full
length of the Eastern seaboard, many areas of the South and Southwest, all over the Midwest, and the West coast.
Since our inaugural sale in January 2005, we have been deeply gratified by the receipt of bids from virtually all
states within the US, as well as Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, China, Columbia, Germany, Iceland, Indonesia, Italy, Japan,
Malaysia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The breadth of our relationships is
a direct result of the unrivalled experience of our team. We are without question the most experienced wine
auctioneers in America, and we have earned the friendship and trust of important collectors and sommeliers
around the world.

We are frequently called upon to assist with many charity functions, either through donating the services of an auc-
tioneer or by conducting a tasting. Over the years, we have been involved with raising funds for research in the
areas of AIDS, cancer and heart disease, food programs for the poor or afflicted, as well as for great cultural insti-
tutions such as Lyric Opera of Chicago, the High Museum of Atlanta, and public broadcasting in various regions of
the country. Giving to the community in this way has always been important to us, and on September 28th, the eve
of this auction, we will conduct the first ever charity auction conceived and planned by our own team, in conjunction
with Tru Restaurant and Dom Pérignon. The funds raised by the gala dinner and auctioned items will benefit
children and young adults with spina bifida. We are very excited by this opportunity, and thanks to the generous
participation from Tru, Dom Pérignon, and numerous private collectors, we know this will be a very successful
evening. Details on the event are available on page 4 and on our website at www.hdhwine.com.

We greatly appreciate your continued enthusiasm in Hart Davis Hart, and we hope you will help us usher in the new
season by joining us at the special event on the 28th as well as our auction commencing the following day.

With best regards,




Michael Davis

     We have had the pleasure of working with the owner of
     this vast cellar over many decades. A passionate and
     meticulous collector, he has sourced his wines only
     from the most reputable auction houses and mer-
     chants, including John Hart Fine Wine (prior to its
     transition to Hart Davis Hart). His dedication to collect-
     ing and discriminating taste encompasses many cate-
     gories, including rare automobiles.


     The wines were removed from the collector’s ideal
     custom-built, temperature and humidity controlled
     cellars at his home by Hart Davis Hart staff. The col-
     lector has generously agreed to share selections from
     his collection during the auction.
