Next gathering: Wine Making: By Jerry Mirelli

Friday, March 13 at 8:00 PM -- East Brunswick, NJ

Jerry Mirelli will discuss the entire winemaking process from grape ordering to bottling, corking, and labeling. Jerry has enjoyed making wine with friends and neighbors for more than a dozen years at a professional facility. The resulting wines are of various types, are top quality, and much lower in cost than what you would expect to pay for comparable quality in the store. Of course, there’s no price tag that can be placed on the fun and enjoyment you get from actually making your own wine, to say nothing of the satisfaction of drinking wine from a bottle with your name on it.

About the Speaker: Jerry Mirelli has been a member of CNJM for about 40 years and a member of the Board for one year. He has acted as our external auditor and currently processes the birthday list for the Forvm. Jerry had a 50-year career in various aspects of IT that spanned programming and systems design to executive management, ending as a metrics process and vendor management consultant, negotiating contracts in the financial industry. Along the way, Jerry taught at Rider College and graduate courses at Stevens Institute. He is currently active in his 55+ community serving on the Board and participating in the IT, Newspaper, Drama, Photo and Golf committees and clubs.

We’ll also learn the results of the CNJ Mensa Election at this meeting!
