    Celebrity chefs discussing links and greens makes perfect sense. But in this case the conversation will be focused not on imported sausage nor on dinner salads. Instead, these kitchen gods and goddesses will be joined by renowned wine authorities as they plan not courses of a meal but their attack on the Biltmore Hotel’s par-71 championship golf course. For any mere mortal who can appreciate the chance to talk wine and food with experts while enjoying a round of golf in a beautiful setting, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. Cigar Aficionado executive editor Gordon Mott will serve as master of ceremonies at the gourmet luncheon that wraps up the day of play.

        The Festival once again invites those who seek a serious education in the finer things in life, whether novices or aficionados, to its teaching tastings.  The Wine Spectator Wine Seminars bring together experts ready to share their unique knowledge and offer guests a comprehensive view of today’s vin scene.  Learn about the special qualities of specific wines as well as the grapes and techniques that go into creating them. Wine Spectator executive editor Thomas Matthews will introduce each session, Riedel Crystal of America CEO Maximilian Riedel will educate guests about the advantages of finely crafted glassware, and vintners and principals from a variety of handpicked estates will lead the exciting range of tastings to follow.  Attendees will have the opportunity to register for a free one-year subscription to Wine Spectator.

        • Perrier Jouët – “Bouquet of Three Fleurs”
          "For this special Wine Spectator Seminar, the House of Champagne Perrier Jouët lead by Chef de Caves Hervé Deschamps will present a special "Bouquet of Three Fleurs" tasting.  By offering an evolution of varietals, vintages, and volumes, the attending VIPs experience first-hand the beautiful unfolding of Perrier Jouët’s favored flowers.

          First:  750ml, Chardonnay focus, 1999 vintage: 1999 Fleur de Champagne Blanc de Blancs
          Deschamps introduces the 'jewel in the proverbial crown' of the 'Three Fleurs" with Perrier Jouët's rare and highly-acclaimed, single varietal and single vineyard, the 1999 Fleur de Champagne Blanc de Blancs, presented in 750ml or single bottle format.  This all-Chardonnay offering showcases the 100%-rated village and single 10-acre contiguous parcel from the adjoining Bourons-Leroy and Bourons-du-Midi vineyards. 

          Second: 1.5 L, Focus on Pinot Noir, 1999 vintage: 1999 Fleur de Champagne Rosé
          From there, Deschamps transitions to the 1999 Fleur de Champagne Rosé.  The common denominator of the 1999 vintage becomes the vantage point to discuss the differences in varietals (a Pinot Noir focus, transitioning from all Chardonnay) as well as sizes to a double (or magnum) size contrasting from the previous 750ml. 

          Third:  3L, Chardonnay with Pinot Noir, 1995 vintage: 1995 Fleur de Champagne
          3 times the size, this third offering presents what our chef de caves says of the House that in the 1800s was the highest selling champagne by Christie’s: this could be one of the best bottlings still on the market at the moment - a 3L of 1995 Fleur de Champagne.  An integration of both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, this large format from the 1995 vintage delivers like a robust bunch of roses.
        • The Historic Vineyards of Santa Barbara County                                               
          Join Jim Clendenen of Au Bon Climat and Frank Ostini of Hitching Post for a rare opportunity to taste both old and new Chardonnay’s and Pinot Noirs from some of the oldest vineyards in Santa Barbara County. Included in this taste of history will be wines from Sanford & Benedict Vineyard, Bien Nacido Vineyard and Los Alamos Vineyard.

        • Peter and Robert Mondavi Family Seminar
          Join Thomas Matthews, executive editor of Wine Spectator, as he welcomes Robert and Peter Mondavi, icons of the Napa Valley wine scene and co-recipients of the 2007 Southern Wine & Spirits Lifetime Achievement Award. Accompanied by their children Marc, Peter Jr., Tim and Marcia, the pioneering brothers will guide attendees through a tasting of Robert Mondavi and Charles Krug - Peter Mondavi Family wines as well as samplings of pre-1965 Charles Krug wines produced by Peter and Robert.

          Among the stellar offerings at the table will be the brothers’ most-recent collaborative effort: Ancora Una Volta. This 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon celebrates their family bond, unites their individual passions for winemaking and showcases the finest grapes from their respective vineyards. 
        • Château Haut-Brion
          In 1664, Madame de Lestonnac bequeathed the Domaine of La Mission Haut-Brion to the Lazaristes Monks, a congregation founded by Saint Vincent de Paul. The “good fathers” worked to restore their property to its rightful worth. After them, the Chiapella family (owners in the 19th century) and Woltner family (owners between 1919 and 1983) never stopped improving the vineyard and modernizing the chai. 

          In 1983, the Dillon family, already owner of Château Haut-Brion, purchased the Château La Mission Haut-Brion. Founded in 1533, Château Haut-Brion has a long and distinguished history. It was the first wine sold under the name of its vineyard site, as opposed to larger geographical appellations. It is the oldest and smallest of the four First Growth Properties classified in the 1855 classification of the Gironde wines.

          Since 1935, the estate belongs to the Dillon family. Château Haut-Brion was bought by an American, Clarence Dillon, and is managed today by his granddaughter, Madame la Duchesse de Mouchy, President, and her son, H.R.H Prince Robert of Luxembourg, Vice President and Managing Director of Domaine Clarence Dillon.

          Today, H.R.H. Prince Robert of Luxembourg, and Mr. Jean-Philippe Delmas, Estate Manager, will offer you the possibility to taste all the wines produced in both Estates by presenting you the 1998 vintage. Undoubtedly, this is a one in a lifetime experience…

              • Louis Roederer Champagne "Around the World"
                The magic of the House of Louis Roederer extends beyond the boundaries of the Champagne region.  Under the leadership of Jean-Claude Rouzaud, grandson of Madame Roederer, the company has acquired exceptional wine properties in southern France, Bordeaux and Portugal.  This tasting is the rare opportunity to re-discover the exquisite house style “without compromise” through champagne, rosé wine, a Bordeaux blend and port.

              • Maison Louis Latour
                Louis Fabrice Latour will present a vertical tasting of Grand Cru Chateau Corton Grancey, beginning with 1990 vintage and continuing through 2003. Mr. Latour will discourse on the distinct qualities and particularities of each vintage. Chateau Corton Grancey has been the heart of Domaine Latour since 1891. This world famous Pinot Noir is made from a blend of the finest casks from a handful of single vineyards in the appellation of Corton and is only released in exceptional years.

              • Château Margaux
                Paul Pontallier, Chateau Margaux’s General Director and winemaker, will come for a tutored tasting and show a selection of some of the best vintages of the wines of Chateau Margaux. He will introduce the guests to the reasons why Chateau Margaux is consistently producing great wines. He will share his passion for this great terroir as well as the sheer pleasure not only to taste but also to drink its wines.

              • The Antinori Family: Past, Present and Future
                Marchese Piero Antinori guides a family wine business that is remarkable for its unique amalgam of centuries’ old Tuscan and Umbrian tradition with modern innovation, making Antinori the premier wine producing family of Italy for more than 620 years.  Of the company’s philosophy, Piero Antinori has said “Age-old roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have not served to inhibit our innovative spirit.”  In fact, while playing a vital role in the preservation of Italy’s enological traditions, his innovative, dynamic and visionary views have led to Italy’s recognition as a producer of world-class wine.  Today, the 26th generation of the Antinori family, Piero Antinori’s daughters Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, are involved in all aspects of and will play important roles in the prestigious producer’s future. 

                This session will feature a special tour of the family’s estates in Bolgheri, Chianti, Montalcino, Montepulciano and Orvieto, all notable for rich cultural histories and acclaimed vineyards.  Piero Antinori has personally chosen a rare collection of wines from each estate, including Cervaro, Tignanello, Guado al Tasso and Badia a Passignano.

This afternoon he gathers a panel of celebrity chefs including Eric Ripert, Jonathan Eismann, Gabrielle Hamilton, Andrew Carmellini and Tom Colicchio to offer their individual versions of “How I Learned to Cook.” A take-off on the title of a new book about how some culinary heavy hitters got started, the informal talk-fest is sure to include embarrassing revelations, terrifying tales (can you say, “kitchen fire”?), accounts of pure idiocy and even a heart-warming moment or two.

There he so impressed the management that they paid his tuition to the prestigious French Culinary Institute. While he has since made a name for himself in southwestern American cuisine, Bobby clearly embraces good food of all types and displays that passion on his newest show, Throwdown with Bobby Flay.

I tried to copy her and ended up grilling my right thumb! I was 3 or 4.” Rachael has come a long way since those early days, having managed pubs and restaurants, served as the food buyer for a gourmet market and starred in a cooking program on a local news station before hitting the big time. Her exuberance and dedication to easy and delicious home-cooked meals have earned her a following among moms, dads and everyone else who has ever struggled to put nutritious food on the table fast.

Best known for the Cabernet Sauvignons he makes at Caymus Vineyards, Chuck Wagner will not only prepare a tasting of the 1994 and 2004 Special Selection Cabernets, he’ll also proudly pour wines made by his sons Charlie (Mer Soleil Chardonnay from Monterey County) and Joseph (Belle Glos single-vineyard Pinot Noirs.) Having started Caymus with his mother Lorna, and father Charlie, Chuck knows the family is onto something:  Wine Spectator recently recognized Caymus Vineyards for producing the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the Napa Valley since 1990.

George is usually found hamming it up on his own Food Network program, where he often invents unusual new food concepts (sushi on a stick, deep-fried mac and cheese), occasionally consults with experts (such as the science teacher who used liquid nitrogen to make ice-cream lickity split) and regularly conducts man-on-the-street interviews to find out what real people eat (apparently, raw cookie dough is big). Today the wacky guy with a French culinary degree aims to teach the young crowd how to create a family-friendly meal and have fun doing it.

It was the first wine sold under the name of its vineyard site, as opposed to larger geographical appellations. Château Haut-Brion is the oldest and smallest of the four First Growth Properties classified in the 1855 classification of the Gironde wines. Since 1935, the Estate has belonged to the Dillon family. Château Haut-Brion was bought by an American, Clarence Dillon, and is managed today by his granddaughter, Madame la Duchesse de Mouchy, President, and her son, H.R.H Prince Robert of Luxembourg, Vice President and Managing Director of Domaine Clarence Dillon. The Estate founded in 1533 hasn’t stopped growing since then. H.R.H. Prince Robert of Luxembourg and Mr. Jean-Philippe Delmas, Estate Manager, the third generation in charge, will take us through a historical journey of both the wines and the vineyard. This rare seminar will celebrate over twenty years of wines (ending with the legendary 1985) that will surely leave a grand impression on all of our paletes and memories.

Opened on a shoestring budget and with their parents helping in the kitchen, Le Bernardin earned the first of two Michelin stars within four years on the strength of Gilbert’s excellent seafood-only menu and Maguy’s energy and drive in the dining room. Inspired by the triumph and growing international reputation of Le Bernardin in Paris, the Le Cozes opened Le Bernardin in New York in 1986 – today a culinary landmark and the city’s only four-star seafood restaurant.

Now a part owner of the restaurant, the French-born Ripert has earned acclaim as “Top Chef in New York City” (1998) and “Outstanding Chef of the Year” (2003) from the James Beard Foundation and garnered for Le Bernardin the titles of “Best Restaurant in America” (1997) from GQ and “Best Food in New York City” (2000-2003) from Zagat.

In 2007 this over-the-top event takes the pleasure even further by inviting you into an exclusive new location! The VIP club level at the top of the AmericanAirlines Arena is where the private suites of major corporations are housed…and where this year’s celebration of gastronomic excellence will be hosted “in the round.” Enter the private level and join Wine Spectator’s Executive Editor Thomas Matthews as he guides you through a dizzying array of the literally “the best of the best” wines in existence, each poured by the winemaker and artfully matched with gourmet fare. (Cleanse your palate between sips and bites with the cool, clear taste of Voss Artesian water from Norway.)

PURE, the wildly popular, high-end Las Vegas hot spot at Caesars Palace, will open a South Florida version at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach in 2008, but you can experience the scintillating excitement of this tres chic lounge early when it is recreated in the VIP club level’s biggest suite of all! And to add yet another measure of drama to an already dramatic evening, make your way to the Delta Airlines silent-auction table to place bids on any of the dozens of unique wine lots offered up for your consideration.
