1 THE RUSTY STAUB FOUNDATION Benefiting Youth, Fighting Hunger It was 1985 and for Rusty Staub, it was time to go to bat for those much less fortunate in life. The Rusty Staub Foundation** was founded that year and, true to our motto Benefiting Youth, Fighting Hunger, our only mission ever since has been to give children the opportunity to live full, happy and productive lives and to give aid to the hungry. To this end we have established the Rusty Staub Foundation Emergency Food Pantries. Presently, we have food pantries in Harlem, Brooklyn & Queens. Additionally, our mobile unit brings food to the Bronx and Staten Island and is available in case of an emergency. This year we expect to serve more than one million meals in New York City to the needy. To date, the foundation has raised nearly $20 million for organizations that share our mission. We raise funds primarily through events held annually in New York City such as our annual wine auction dinner in October. We also host a golf tournament in June of each year to help fund our food pantries and mobile unit. We are sincerely grateful for all of the financial assistance we have received throughout the years and promise to work as hard as possible to continue to earn your valued support. We, and especially the children and families who have benefited so much from your generosity, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. **The Rusty Staub Foundation is a not-for-profit, 501c(3) charitable organization recognized by the U.S. Federal Government, the Internal Revenue Service and the State of New York (Federal Tax ID # ).

4 Ursula Hermacinski is one of the foremost wine auctioneers in the world. She has been standing at a podium from the very start of her career at Christie s in New York in Ursula worked as furniture and decorations generalist until Christie s called upon her to actualize her passion for the grape. In 1994, Ursula established Christie s New York wine department along with their original auction partner Zachys, the Scarsdale, NY fine wine mega-retailer. The Zachys- Christie s New York wine auctions set new standards for the American wine auction market. Ursula left Christie s at the end of 1998 and jumped into the high adventures of the dot com arena. Her pioneering interest in online wine auctions prompted Wine Spectator to profile Ursula in its article The Changing Face of Auctions. Over the years, Ursula has been invited to work most of the country s top ten benefit wine auctions. In 1992 Ursula became the first woman to take the rostrum at the world famous Napa Valley Wine Auction and continues to appear annually. Ursula works personally with record-holding baseball player Rusty Staub, presiding each year over his foundation s wine auction. Ursula has also joined forces with celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse to wield the gavel for his foundation. In addition, to banging a gavel, Ursula has spoken at a number of wine conferences and symposia, including the Aspen Food & Wine Festival, The International Pinot Noir Celebration and the American Institute of Wine and Food Nation Convention. Additionally, you may have seen her profiled in Wine Spectator, Decanter, Wine & Spirits, Drinks, Town & Country, and Glamour magazines. Along with the wine world s most influential figures in the international wine scene, Ursula is included in Ann B. Matasar s, Women of Wine (University of California Press). Vanity Fair magazine included her as a definition in their 2005 Wine Snob s Dictionary. Ursula is the Senior Advisor and Principal Auctioneer to the wine auction world s new powerhouse, Wally s Wine Auctions. She is the author of The Wine Lovers Guide to Auctions: The Art & Science of Buying and Selling Wine (Square One Publishers).

7 2014 Burgundy Vintage Report by Rusty Staub For me, this vintage in Burgundy has been a delight to taste and to talk about. The wines are, for the most part, elegant and lovely. The reds succeed in expressing their specific vineyard site. They are fruity, with no hard edges, balanced and a pleasure to taste. With good energy, they are very charming. As for the whites, it seemed everyone was already talking about their potential from the start. Minerality and purity seem to be the trend for this vintage, along with the impeccable balance of the wines in both colors. Overall, the growers are very pleased with the 2014s. The grapes and resulting wines in this vintage can be categorized as healthy, beautiful and ripe, with very good minerality all the way through and especially in the finish. So many of the growers talked about how harmonious and smooth the developing wines are. Additionally, aside from a few exceptions, this is finally a relatively normal vintage in terms of volume, and one that also really shows well from the start. The freshness and elegance of many of these wines make them not only exciting to taste now, but also to anticipate just how good they will be in a few years. Burgundy lovers will be very happy with the 2014 wines, which will surely be delightful to share amongst friends. Though the 2015s are already heralded, despite having not even finished malos yet, it would be a shame to miss out on the 2014s. I would urge you to stop listening to vintage forecasts until the wines are ready for evaluation. We all know how many times the early opinions are later deemed inaccurate. In Vino Veritas, Daniel J. Rusty Staub
