1 OLD BROOKVILLE A Gold Coast Manor

2

3 ABOUT BANFI Banfi is a private concern, founded in New York in 1919 by John Mariani, Sr. and today owned and operated by his sons and grandchildren. The company is focused on the production and import of wine. Castello Banfi is the Mariani family s vineyard estate in Montalcino, Tuscany, which produces award-winning wines that are exported to over 80 countries around the world. Vigne Regali is the name of the family s sparkling wine cellars in Strevi, Piedmont, run in conjunction with the nearby single-vineyard estates of Principessa Gavia and Rosa Regale. Banfi Vintners is the sole U.S. importer of Banfi s Italian wines along with those of several other producers, principally from Italy, Chile and Australia. The company has ranked as the nation s leading wine importer for more than three decades. Mr. Mariani named the company after an aunt, Teodolinda Banfi, a woman of eclectic tastes who supervised his early education and greatly influenced his views toward fine wines. Until her retirement, she had served as head of the household staff of the late Pope Pius XI, and is distinguished as the first lay person ever to hold that post. Banfi s success has enabled the company to play a broad philanthropic role through the Banfi Foundation. It also generously endows select charities and universities around the world, and sponsors annual scholastic tours to study the food and wine culture of Italy.

4 Banfi s headquarters, a 60-room manor, originally known as Rynwood, which also has served as a country retreat for a branch of the Vanderbilt family, sits amid squared lawns and formal English gardens on a heavily landscaped 127-acre estate in the exurb of Old Brookville, Long Island. Its vaulted ceilings, English oak paneling, long-sounding corridors, stained-glass medallions, Guastivino-tiled fireplaces and tapestries recall a charming yet opulent age of Long Island s Gold Coast. Harvard architect Roger Harrington Bullard built the manor house in 1927 on what local historians claim is the oldest road in America: Cedar Swamp Road. He was commissioned by Sir Samuel Agar Salvage, often called the father of the rayon industry in the United States, the chairman of the American Viscose Corporation. In 1927, as Rynwood was nearing completion, he made the mansion available to the British government for Empire Day, a royal spectacle held every May 24th to celebrate the birthday of Queen Victoria. The event marked the beginning of the home s prominent role in the social life of Long Island s Gold Coast that was to last for more than three decades. All three Salvage daughters Katharine, Margaret and Magdelaine made their debuts there. Shortly after Sir Samuel s death in 1946, Lady Salvage placed the manor house on the market. In less than 24 hours, Miss Margaret Emerson appeared at the forecourt entrance. She was the widow of socialite Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt and the daughter of the pharmacist, Isaac E. Emerson, who invented the headache remedy, Bromo Seltzer. According to Magdelaine Salvage, Miss Emerson inquired only about the purchase price and the location of the croakie-pitch court (croquet court). When informed there was no croquet court, she departed without looking at the pantry, the kitchen, even the swimming pool. My mother simply assumed we had lost a prospective buyer until the next day when Miss Emerson s

5 attorney arrived at Rynwood and negotiated its purchase. A team of decorators appeared shortly thereafter, she continued, and they worked on the home for nine months. Not once during that time did Miss Emerson ever make an appearance. But a croquet court did. The new owner ordered a hill on the southeast lawn leveled for that purpose. In 1960, the manor house was sold to Frederick William Irving Lundy, a Sheepshead Bay restaurateur who claimed he fed about a million people a year. It was one of 70 properties he owned, including 30,000 acres in Ellenville, N.Y. Mr. Lundy rarely visited Rynwood ; he kept increasingly to himself in his declining years and the property began to deteriorate. He died in 1977 at the age of 82, and Banfi purchased the estate two years later. Assisted by architectural renderings and old photographs, two leading experts began restoring the manor in They were: Dr. Marcello Matteini, professor of architecture at the University of Rome; Mr. Hampton, whose clients include former President

6 George Bush, described the Old Brookville assignment as, Simply heroic. Our objective was to create the atmosphere of a magnificent home, not a crassly commercial office. They succeeded. It took almost three years to accomplish and required the talents of 50 artists, artisans and horticulturists. All 60 rooms, both great and small, have been appointed with an array of treasures from Europe, mostly English and Italian, reflecting the 15th-century custom of English gentry traveling to Italy to acquire rare paintings, marbles, bronzes and other objects of art. An eclectic, humanist assortment, they date from the Etruscan period (8th century B.C. to 1st century B.C.) through the 19th century A.D. A grape-and-wine theme is evident everywhere: on carpets, wall sconces, windows and, of course, statuary. Dominating the main staircase is a bronze statue of Michelangelo s Bacchus, which stands two meters high. A similar casting can be found in the Mellon Wing of the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. The original figure was executed in marble during the sculptor s first visit to Rome in He completed it in a year. Many of the home s furnishings and paintings were acquired by John F. Mariani, Banfi s chairman, and his wife, Pamela. On numerous trips to Europe over a two-year period, they spent

7 countless hours visiting historic homes and antique shops in London, Rome, Florence, Milan, Zurich and Geneva. The last thing we wanted to create was a museum, but we wanted museum quality, said Pamela Mariani. The manor s library, which extends the entire length of the building s west wing, can boast of an unusual number of conversation pieces, including a 12th-century Tuscan table, medieval tapestries, a 17th-century George Brooke grandfather clock, a Queen Anne tallboy (circa 1710), an English rent table that now serves as a desk, even a choir loft. (In Elizabethan times, such a room which is shaped in the form of a cross, served as the manor s chapel.) Several chairs in the library had been purchased by professor Matteini but their flame-stitch coverings, mostly blue and grey with gold highlights, did not appeal to Mr. Mariani. Before leaving on a business trip to Italy, he made arrangements to change the fabric. While in Florence, however, he spotted the identical fabric at the Uffizi Palace and learned that it featured the colors and signatures of the Medici. A fast call to the office saved the library chairs! A heavily paneled room, appointed with a 7th-century Tuscan table flanked by 8th-century Tuscan chairs, serves as Banfi s boardroom. The decorators also borrowed selectively from periods within England s

8 golden age of furniture, everything ranging from florid Baroque to elegant Queen Anne. There s a George 1 lowboy and a chest of drawers (circa 1775), an Irish Chippendale tall case clock (circa 1790), Gothick (so spelled to distinguish it form medieval Gothic) Chippendale side chairs (circa 1830); and, of course, smooth Cabriole legs and ball-and-claw feet are much in evidence. A few pieces are modern, albeit with a period look. The dining room table, which seats 12, and the board room table were both made by Italian craftsmen in Locust Valley, N.Y., based on Mark Hampton sketches. No tables could be found in Europe large enough to meet Banfi s needs. Other appointments are 18th- and 19th-century Chinese lacquer screen panels, French Empire urn lamps, Ludovican benches of the 12th century, an Italian Renaissance refectory table and fireplace equipment and wall sconces with a grape motif hand-crafted by Swoboda, the Austrian swordmaker. Flemish tapestries of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries and medieval banners decorate the walls. One tapestry, depicting Putti harvesting grapes, is based on a 15th century Italian vintage cartoon by Gaetano Romano, a disciple of Raphael; its mate hangs at Chateau Beychevelle in Bordeaux. John Mariani, Sr., founder of Banfi, acquired the banners at an auction held at the Harvey Firestone estate in Florida in A

9 Also on display are acquatints, sketches, prints, lithographs, water colors, Grisaille panels (two white-on-gray tompe l oeil murals), and a notable collection of paintings by Gabriel Carelli; such American artists as Ryder Platt Powell and Granville Perkins; and the works of five members of the Royal Academy, W. H. Collingwood-Smith, William Henry Hunt, Arthur Joseph Meadows, C. T. Bale and C. M. Powell, and the noted Victorian army surgeon-turned-painter, Henry Pillau. A unique boast of the manor is a wine cellar that houses some 6,000 bottles of rare vintages, including vertical collections of Castello Banfi s Brunellos, Super Tuscans, and single-vineyard varietals. A safe-type door, 8 feet high and almost a foot thick, guards the treasure. Like all English manor houses, this one too is haunted by a ghost, Banfi executives always tell visitors, noting it performs in the living room. They admit they ve never seen the ghost but insist that he (or she) occasionally sits down at the Baby Grand to play. Guests laugh off the suggestion, sometimes derisively, and direct their attention elsewhere. Then

10 the keys begin to move, offering up Beethoven s Moonlight Sonata or a Bach prelude, inspiring at least questioning looks. (The piano operates electronically when triggered surreptitiously by the guide.) A tall glass showcase, dubbed the reliquary, rests against the living room s south wall. It contains the relics of the late Saint Pope Pius X, including his silverware, which was given to the Marianis by their great aunt, Teodolinda Banfi, who served at the Vatican as chief of the household staff of Pope Pius XI. (He obviously preferred his own silverware.) T Other shelves display Etruscan artifacts that date back to the third or fourth century before Christ: arrowheads, vases, lamps, mirrors and jewelry. Another conversation piece in the living room is a 15th-century cassone or bride s chest, precursor of the hope chest, used in the days of Catherine de Medici. They usually doubled as benches. Measuring almost 10 feet in length, the side panels are etched in Greek and Roman motifs.

11 The terraced gardens of Banfi Old Brookville were designed by Ellen B. Shipman in Shipman was considered in her time the dean of women landscape architects and is perhaps most famous for her estate gardens. Banfi Old Brookville s gardens create a smooth transition from the natural landscape to the imposing structure of the house, which sits between a paved court with massive oaks at the entrance and a grass court behind the house formed by the dining room wing on one side and the library wing on the other. Broad stone steps lead to a wide grass terrace with another set of steps leading to a sprawling lawn and wooded ravine. To the west of the terrace is a walled-in rose garden which lies directly below the main flower garden. A round dovecote, a structure typical of old English estates, is nestled between these two gardens with a small tea house designed with an open porch standing opposite to the north.

12 To the west of the main garden, semi-circular steps lead down to a reflecting pool and yet another garden, with winding steps leading to a tennis court below. This network of terraces, gardens, and decorative buildings allowed for a house of the proportions of Banfi Old Brookville to fit perfectly on an irregular building site without losing the natural character of its surroundings. One might say that Shipman s design shows nature and nurture in a near perfect harmony. The estate s bucolic atmosphere is enhanced with a 20-acre Chardonnay vineyard. Banfi officials view their home as a showcase for world-class wines, much like the chateaux, schloss and castelli found in the great wine regions of Europe. Their penchant for historical buildings and treasures also led them to acquire in 1979 an 1860 cellar and winery in Strevi, Piedmont, and some 7,100 acres in Montalcino, on which Banfi has built what it considers the most technologically advanced winery and vineyards in Europe, perhaps the world. The Montalcino property is crowned with a castle that was built by the Longobards in 800 A.D. It also has been restored. The wine trade is a gentleman s calling, says John Mariani, Jr. in explaining Banfi s preference for historically appointed surroundings, and the integrity of the business should be reflected in an atmosphere that, like wine itself, is gracious and steeped in tradition.

13

14 Banfi is led today by the founder s two sons: John F. Mariani, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Harry F. Mariani, President and Chief Operating Officer, along with their children. John s daughter, Cristina, serves as Executive Vice President for Global marketing of Castello Banfi and Harry s son, James, is Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Banfi Vintners import operations. James Mariani literally learned the wine business from the ground up, working in his family s vineyards in Montalcino, Italy and Old Brookville, New York, before heading off to earn his undergraduate degree at Colgate University and his MBA at Cornell University s Johnson School of Business. He took on management positions in several areas of the business. Though most of his time is dedicated to meeting with Banfi s wholesale and retail customers, James still seizes each opportunity to address consumer groups at seminars, dinners and other events. Meeting and talking with people at these events gives me continual insight,

15 noted James. Banfi s success was built on understanding the American wine palate, and I want to make sure we always remember that. Family travels for a child can mean adventure and relaxation, but for young Cristina Mariani-May, it meant informal job training. From the age of 7, she traveled to some of the world s renowned wine regions with her father. Captivated by the travel bug, she rounded her undergraduate education with a year at Georgetown University s campus in Florence, Italy to study art history, another family passion. After earning her MBA at Columbia University, Cristina returned to the wine world. When not traveling to wine venues across Europe, Asia and North America, she divides her time between the Tuscan estate and Banfi Vintner s headquarters in her native Long Island, New York.

16 OLD BROOKVILLE VINEYARDS Banfi s Old Brookville Vineyard was planted in 1982 on a plot formerly used to grow crops for the neighboring Young s Farm Stand on Hegeman s Lane. The 20-acre vineyard is dedicated to one grape variety, Chardonnay. Approximately 1,500 cases of Old Brookville Gold Coast Reserve Chardonnay are produced from grapes grown on the site, and bottled and vinified by Premium Wine Group of Mattituck, Long Island. Old Brookville Vineyards is the only commercial vineyard property in Nassau County, and also has the claim of being the closest vineyard to Broadway. The wine is sold throughout the U.S. as well as internationally thanks to Banfi s efficient sales network and recognized name for quality wines.

18 CASTELLO BANFI A Profile A family-owned vineyard estate and winery in the Brunello region of Tuscany, Castello Banfi s dedication to excellence in all aspects has won the approval of aficionados the world over, capturing honor after prestigious honor. A constellation of single vineyards encompassing over three dozen varying subsoils, the Castello Banfi estate is renowned for its work to weave noble grape varieties with their optimal terroir. Here, over two decades of unprecedented research has isolated a selection of superior clones of the native Sangiovese to produce not only a consistently outstanding Brunello but the maximum expression of Montalcino Super Tuscan cuvées. Central to the property is a medieval castle that functions as a hospitality center, hosting visitors at the fine dining, Michelin-star Ristorante Castello Banfi and the more casual Taverna Banfi, along with an enoteca, balsamic cellar, and museum dedicated to the history of glass and its relation to wine. Signature wines of the Castello Banfi estate, in addition to Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino, the cru Poggio alle Mura and the single-vineyard Riserva Poggio all Oro, are three proprietary cuvées, ExcelsuS, SummuS and Cum Laude. Several noble varietal wines, including Tavernelle Cabernet Sauvignon, Colvecchio Syrah, Fontanelle Chardonnay and San Angelo Pinot Grigio, are produced there as well as an extra vergine olive oil and a balsamic vinegar called Salsa Balsamica Etrusca.

19 Ristorante Castello Banfi The elegant Michelin-star, Ristorante Castello Banfi, with clothed tables, frescoed walls and a welcoming fireplace, serves what has been described as light Mediterranean cuisine. Its selection of meat and fish dishes are inspired by seasonal local produce, offered in tasting menus or à la carte. A complete list of Castello Banfi wines rounds out the experience. The Ristorante is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Taverna Banfi Taverna Banfi is a casual setting in the vaulted cellars of the building, with sturdy wooden tables placed under the brick arches where over sized wooden casks of the area s traditional Brunello di Montalcino once rested. Castello Banfi wines complement the three-course and five-course tasting menus as well à la carte selections of traditional Tuscan dishes and delicacies. The Taverna is open for lunch Monday through Saturday from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Reservations made three to five weeks in advance are required for the Ristorante and recommended for the Taverna. Visitors to the estate may also arrange for guided tours of the winery as well as wine tastings at the Enoteca and entry to the Giovanni F. Mariani Glass Museum, both located within the Castello complex. Telephone , Fax ,
