The St. James Wine Tasting Committee is grateful for the lovely evening that our parishioners and community friends shared on Saturday, March 1, at our St. James 11th annual Wine Tasting Festival.

We are most grateful for the wineries that continue to join us each year. This year, guests enjoyed tasting fine wines from the following wineries: Abbey New Clairvaux Vineyard, Berryessa Gap Vineyards, Bogle Vineyards, Carvalho Family Winery, Capay Valley Vineyards, Crew Wine, Dos Rios Winery, Marr Cellars, Putah Creek Winery, Simas Family Vineyard, Tablas Creek Vineyard and Turkovich Family Wines. New wine activities led by UC Davis students Jonathan Cave and Tina Beverage were also enjoyed!

A big thank you to the following donors who continue to support this event with their delicious culinary delights: Dos Coyotes Border Café, Original Steve’s Pizza, Monticello, the Collins Endives and the Meyer Olive Oil Tasting; as well as the wonderful cheese table by the Greenough family. Also, special appreciation for the scrumptious desserts prepared by the Katsaris family and other private donors.

A special thank-you to the local artists who participated in our “First Art Show” — Ann Privateer, Barbara Ruhman, Dori Marshall, Gloria Bonekat, Gloria Regan, Kevin Roddy, Larry Hornbeek, Mary Anne Kirsch and Victoria Bourne.

A special acknowledgement is extended to the following businesses for other donations: the above-mentioned participating wineries, Casey Winery, De Luna Jewelers, 3rd Street Jewelers and Nugget Market.

The live band Oz Lorenzos was back again this year along with a special guest — parishioner and student Benjamin Blatbat. We are also thankful to Terra Studio.

This annual social event embraces the parish and the Davis community; it also serves as a fundraiser for the Memorial Center debt. The St. James ministries, St. James School and Davis community groups use the Memorial Center. The center allows St. James to participate in the annual Davis Interfaith Rotating Shelter and the Celebration of Abraham.

The St. James Parish appreciates the generous community support and is grateful to the Rev. Peter Bosque, St. James Parish staff, St. James School and the Newman Students Club. A big special thank-you to each and all the volunteers that made this a successful and lovely evening!

Gloria Widner
Event chair, Davis
