                     The Wine Odyssey
                      PARTICIPATING CHEFS

               CHEF DOUG BLAIR - Voyseys at Cassique
               Kiawah Island Club - Executive Chef
               Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Doug Blair is Voysey’s Executive
               Chef. He has more than 18 years experience and worked in some of
               the finer restaurants in Seattle before settling in Charleston. Since
               then, he has graced the kitchens of such well-known Lowcountry
eateries as The Indigo House, The Country Club of Charleston, and Beaumont’s.
Blair was personally trained by Chef Tom Colicchio in his New York kitchens.

               CHEF NATHAN WHITING - The Woodlands Inn
               Executive Chef
               Nathan Whiting’s love of food began at the apron strings of his
               grandmother in the small town of Ontario in upstate New York. He
               would spend hours learning to cook in her kitchen, and also a
               variety of life lessons. Whiting’s mother is of Italian descent, which
explains the influence that type of cuisine has on his food. However, he is keen to
point out that he considers his cuisine “New American,” meaning worldly culinary
techniques influence mainly domestic produce and product.

                                                                         page 5
               CHEF BRAD JONES - 82 Queen
               Executive Chef
               Executive Chef Brad Jones. One of the professionals behind the
               success of 82 Queen is Executive Chef Brad Jones, a veteran chef of
               6 years at 82 Queen. “We put a lot of time and effort into each dish
               to make it unique,” says Jones.
Chef Jones credits the authenticity of 82 Queen’s Lowcountry cuisine to its
homegrown ingredients. “We use a lot of local herbs and vegetables when they’re in
season … like okra, tomatoes, sweet corn, peppers, and mushrooms to showcase
our prime cuts of beef and fresh seafood. Our shrimp, crab, grouper, flounder,
snapper and black fish are so fresh… they were probably swimming in local waters a
day or two before being served at our tables,” concludes Chef Jones.

               CHEF CRAIG DEIHL - Cypress
               Executive Chef
               Chef Craig Deihl is a graduate of Johnson and Wales University and a
               native of Danville, Pennsylvania. After training for nearly five years at
               Charleston’s Magnolias Uptown/Down South, he helped launch
               Cypress in 2001. Deihl knew from an early age he was destined for a
career in the kitchen. His first job, at the Pine Barn Inn in Danville, taught Deihl
the art of running a kitchen from cooking to ordering food and running a staff.
Chef Deihl is inspired by the challenge of playing a prominent role in Charleston’s
burgeoning dining scene and influencing the national reputation of the Holy
City’s cuisine.

               CHEF MARC COLLINS - Circa 1886 - The Wentworth Mansion
               Executive Chef
               Chef Collins began his career working on the Paradise II, a private yacht
               that was the sister ship of the Presidential yacht, Sequoia, in Erie, PA,
               starting as a dishwasher and working his way up through many
               different positions. While attending a vocational culinary school in
Erie, he took a job at the Erie Country Club, serving under Executive Chef David
Spadafore, a Gold Medal Winner in the Culinary Olympics. His education
continued at the Pennsylvania Institute of Culinary Arts in Pittsburgh, and after
graduation, he headed south to Texas to learn more about their food tradition in
2001, Chef Collins moved to Charleston, S.C., and was named executive chef of
the Wentworth Mansion’s restaurant Circa 1886.
Inspired by the ingredients and cooking styles found in Charleston residences
during the late 1800s that combined English, French and Caribbean influences,
Circa 1886 Executive Chef Marc Collins brings a modern and innovative approach
to traditional Southern cuisine.

                                                                           page 6
               CHEF MIKE LATA - FIG - Chef and Owner

               the seasons by helping his grandparents with their garden. After a

as a chef. He stayed in Boston working in various restaurants before being lured to
Martha’s Vineyard and eventually the famed Black Dog Tavern. Lata later worked in
New Orleans and Atlanta before settling in Charleston. FIG (Food is Good) was
launched in the spring of 2001 under the guise of a neighborhood bistro. In a city
with a wide array of high-end restaurants, FIG wanted to be more approachable
than its competition.

               Chef McKee introduced his most significant restaurant,
               Oak Steakhouse, a New York-style Italian steakhouse. Raised in
Brooklyn, New York, Chef McKee’s youth was entrenched in the Italian culinary
traditions of his family, nurturing him towards his future. Chef Brett McKee’s
professional culinary career began in 1983 when he graduated first in his class from
the New York Restaurant School. Moving to Charleston shortly after graduation,

seafood restaurant on the Isle of Palms. Five years later, McKee dazzled downtown
diners at Union Hall with his upscale Italian cuisine. Having developed a loyal
following, McKee opened his namesake restaurant, Brett’s, on James Island in

                  tion. Regarded as one of the traditional négociant-éléveurs, Maison Louis La-
                  tour is the producer of some of the finest Burgundian wines but has also
                  pioneered the production of fine wines from outside of the confines of Bur-
                 gundy. These wines from the Ardèche and the Côteaux de Verdon are slowly
               gaining esteem for their unmatchable quality outside of Burgundy.

                          Chateau Ste. Michelle is the oldest winery in Washington state with some
                          of the most mature vineyards in the Columbia Valley. The winery’s roots
                          date back to after the repeal of Prohibition, when the Pommerelle Wine
                          Company and the National Wine Company were formed in 1934. Today,
                                 Chateau Ste. Michelle is not only recognized for pioneering vinifera
                                 grape growing in the Columbia Valley, but is also a leader in mod-
                                 ern day viticultural research. The winery combines an ongoing
                   dedication to research with a commitment to classic winemaking traditions.

For over thirty years, Dan Duckhorn has been a leader in the Napa
Valley wine community. Influenced by what he had learned on a
journey to France, Dan decided that the Napa Valley was ideal for
the cultivation of Bordeaux varietals. Going against the grain of what
other local producers were doing, Dan decided against producing
Chardonnay. Instead, he made the decision to focus his passion and resources on the production
of a world-class Napa Valley Merlot. Though many other wineries were using Merlot as a blend-
ing grape, Dan pioneered the crafting of a premium stand-alone Napa Valley Merlot.

                          Antinori is currently led by Marchese Piero Antinori, the latest of 26
                          generations to run the family business. The documented history of the
                          Antinori family stretches back as far as the 12th Century, although it
                          was in the century that followed that they arrived in Tuscany. The
family business was wine, and in 1385 Giovanni di Pieri Antinori registered with the Guild of
Winemakers, and so it is this date that has come to be regarded as the starting point for
Antinori. They have been innovators in the development of Super-Tuscan blends, keen experi-
menters in the vineyard, and their considerable success has led to expansion in ownership of real
estate and vineyards.
