As I write this letter,
Send my love to you,
Remember that I’ll always,
Be in love with you…
In the words of the immortal McCartney and Lennon, yes- Petite Sirah – I DO love you!
The 7th Annual celebration of Petite Sirah, Dark & Delicious, will be held at Rockwall Winery in Alameda on February 22nd. At this annual festival off all things Petite and food, over 30 restaurants will pair their dishes with Petite Sirah producers from all over California. Some of them will be pouring some spectacular older vintages, and this is a not to be missed event!
As you might know by now, any wine blogger worth their salt is a poarkatarian. Fortunately, the the National Pork Board is a major sponsor of D&D, which means…that’s right kids, lots and lots of bacon and other porky goodness!
Here are just some of the wineries that will be pouring their Petite Sirahs – in no particular order. Ok fine they are in order, of my faves!
And because you can’t live on inky Petite alone…some of my top picks for food pairings:
|Eat Le Truc||Healdsburg Toffee Company|
|Il Posto Trattoria||Lungomare|
|Mama Tina’s Raviol||Sweet Things Bakery|
Tickets are $63.00 per person and worth it – if you like to eat. However, I have been authorized to let my favorite winos in! Please see below for your chance to win a VIP experience! (More on that later…but it includes 2 tickets to the event and a special surprise before!)
