Steven Kent Mirassou was born in California's Salinas Valley, a member of one of the oldest wine-making families in America.Steven grew up in San Jose and Los Gatos and then went East to college. He received his BA in American Literature from George Washington University and his MA in literature from NYU. His first dream was to become a writer, but back in California he was irresistibly drawn into the wine business, the sixth generation of his family to feel the call.He started his wine work in sales but soon found his true place: out in the vineyards, tending vines, growing grapes, and crafting top-quality wines. Before long he was bringing forth some of the most acclaimed wines in the Livermore Valley and he became an industry force. He is a co-founder of the Mount Diablo Highlands Wine Quality Alliance and the president of the Livermore Valley Wine Growers Association.Steven has four adult children: April Coffey, Aidan Mirassou, Katherine Mirassou, and Sara Mirassou. He lives in Pleasanton, California, with his fiancée, Nancy Castro, and their three dogs. Lineage is his first book.
