"Our winery was a democracy," Edmund Mirassou said in a 1992 interview. The brothers pioneered several innovations, including the introduction of the overhead sprinkling system that nurtured their vines in Monterey County, where it was once considered too arid to grow grapes. The Mirassou operations in Monterey County together with Wente Bros, and Paul Masson led to the blossoming of the central coast as an important winemaking region, Lohr said. Prior to 1966, the winery was primarily known for providing quality grapes, but sold little wine under the family name. The brothers decided to build up the name and saw their busi Edmund Mirassou watched his vineyard grow into one of the nation's leading wineries.

Edmund A. Mirassou, the San Jose, vintner who toiled in his family's vineyards and then saw them grow into one of the nation's leading wineries, died Wednesday. He was 78. Mr. Mirassou had recently undergone heart valve and bypass surgery.

When he failed to recover, doctors discovered he had acute leukemia, with no chance at his age for treatment. "We decided to bring him home, where he died with dignity," said his son Daniel, who with brothers Peter and James has operated the family winery on Aborn Road in San Jose since 1966. News of his death reverberated Wednesday through the Santa Clara Valley where he was remembered as the patriarch of America's oldest family-owned winemaking operation and a man who helped others. "Fm really shocked," said Jerome Lohr, head of J. Lohr Winery.

In 1971, Lohr and his then-partner Bernard Turgeon had sought out Mirassou's advice when they decided to open a winery. And Mr. Mirassou was effusive in his help and advice to the neophytes. "He was a hail fellow well met," said Lohr. "He was very much a gentleman.

Very open. Very willing to get to know the potential new kids on the block. "He was a true farmer. Farmers help one another. Farmers don't compete.

We all help one another." Mr. Mirassou took over the Mirassou vineyard and winemaking operation in 1937, not long after the end of Prohibition. In partnership with his brother, Norbert, who died in 1992, he ran the winery for 30 years. The brothers built upon the business their great-grandfather, Pierre Pellier, had started in San Jose in the 1850s. Pellier had brought grape cuttings from France, along with la petite d'Agen plums.

Pellier's brother Louis made prune plums his contribution to Santa Clara Valley agriculture.
