Day 2 of SUGARCON 2008 ended with dinner at Testarossa. The winery was originally built in 1888 by Northern Italian Jesuit Fathers and Brothers from the college at Mission Santa Clara (now Santa Clara University) as a means to fund their new seminary college built on the grounds the same year. The original 19th Century, three-floor, gravity-flow winery is still in use today to make Testarossa wines.
The entertainment for the night brought a pleasant contrast to the old-fashioned interior. SugarCRM’s very own Martin Schneider, Sadek Baroudi, Julian Ostrow and Carolyn Doolittle put on quite a show with enigmatic energy that penetrated their initially shy audience. John Roberts joined the band for a couple of songs including a Sugar favorite, “Sugar the Blue Sky.”
