The 2013 football season is over, but we will leave this page up for awhile so you can see what tastings we conducted last year and start planning for a similar program in 2014!
Plus, we did something a little different last season:
All wines should be local from either the Santa Clara Valley, Santa Cruz, Monterey or Paso Robles appellations. We are still seeking to discover “wine finds” (i.e. great wines at reasonable prices), but $20 is a tad too restrictive with the appellations suggested, so the < $20 requirement is lifted.
All SJSU tastings will be in a new location (see map below SJSU/Stanford info).
