We all know how much I love Petite Sirah. So much so that last year I hosted a WBW dedicated entirely to the grape. I routinely buy every Petite Sirah a winery will pour me in their tasting room. (See my series a few weeks ago on all the PS and PS blends I bought while in Murphys!) Petite Sirah and Petite Sirah blends make up the second most represented type of wines in my basement (ignore my Cellartracker cellar, it’s not quite up to date).
I wish that I could attend the Dark & Delicious event! This year it’s being held at the Rockwall Wine Company in Alameda, CA from 6-9pm on Friday, February 20. The cost is $50 in advance, $60 at the door (but really, it’s a popular event, you’ll probably want to buy your tickets early) and includes 3 hours of wine and food. The list of wineries pouring and vendors serving food keeps growing, just yesterday Stonehenge Winery joined the list alongwith Farm Fresh to You, an organic vegetable producer.
I can personally vouch for the Petite Sirahs from many of the wineries pouring, including Concannon, Teldeschi, Foppiano, Huntington, Mounts Family Winery, Rosenblum Cellars, Trentadue Winery, and Twisted Oak. I’ve had other wines from several of the wineries as well, though not their PS.
You can get all the details and purchase tickets here. I will be insanely jealous of all of you who can attend!
P.S.- I am getting free tickets to the event, but I can’t use them, so that’s not the motivation for this post at all! I just think it’s a great event with an amazing line up of PS from at least 37 wineries and at $50 it’s a supreme bargain as far as wine tastings go.
