Wine Tasting Dinner 2001
Reported by Ed Guyer

Wine Tasting Dinner at Mirassou WineryOn the first of September thirty-two club members enjoyed a wine tasting, followed by an expertly guided tour of the winery at Mirassou and dinner. The highlight of the evening was a wonderful dinner, accompanied by a glass of wine complementing the individual courses. The wine tasting set the mood for a pleasant ambiance right away and everybody got acquainted - if only we had Heidi's gift to remember names and faces - and started out in a good spirits. The wines, which were generously poured, were very delicious: two white ones and two red ones. On the tour, which followed the tasting, we learned about the history on the Mirassoufamily and of the winery since its foundation. We saw all the intricate machinery needed in transforming the grapes into wine and we marveled at the refrigerated giant tanks wherein the grape juice ferments to become wine. As we sat down to dinner we marveled at the beautiful table setting and were soon served the first course - charred ahi tuna - together with a suitable white wine. From there on we ate through a delicious menu with many courses - too voluminous to enumerate here. All the food was extremely delicious, beautifully presented and expertly served, inspiring lively dinner conversations. Everyone had a great time while eating too much and enjoying the generous offerings of wine. In closing, we would all agree in saying to Heidi, Ulrich and Nik: Thanks for organizing this shindig. We have to do this more often.
