Mirassou Winery, with David Mirassou www.Mirassou.com



With more than 150 years of winemaking from the Mirassou family and a line of eight uniquely expressive wines

honoring our rich traditions, we are proud that for six generations we've been able to share the gift and joy of

winemaking. Bruce & many other WINOs were previous "Mirassou Tasting Panel" MTP members, and in 1985 Bruce

along with several other WINOs took the 8 week long class at Mirassou on "Beginning Wine Tasting". After that we

moved on to another 8 week course of "Intermediate Wine Tasting", and finishing it up with another 7 weeks of

"Advanced Wine Tasting". Bruce was still educating his Palate and had to take them all again. What a Great addition

the Mirassou's have brought to the History of San Jose and California since 1854!

Thank You: *Downhill Cellars, Fellom Ranch Vineyards, Hallcrest Vineyards, Kathryn Kennedy Winery

Muccigrosso Vineyards, Naumann Vineyards, Testarossa Winery, Vino de Nonno's and Nonno's Italian

Restaurant/Catering. What a Beautiful Day at Fellom Ranch, with 65 WINOs in attendance we picked up $5700 worth.

*The 30th Annual Overnight Bus Trip finally graduated into a Car-Pool, where we had 11 WINO's go to Lodi where

most of the 4 wineries we visited each day, rolled out the carpet for us. We started at Woodbridge for a nice tour of

their facility including the Bouquet of their 100,000 Barrel Cellar which you couldn't see the end. On this trip we had a

blast. Next year, the 31st Overnighter will be set up as a Car-pool unless there's enough interest to justify a Bus.

*Royal Coach took 50 WINOs to the Rock Wall Open House. For 3 hours we were in their wine & food wonderland.
