HINT: Answer and an engaging story here

...and another one here:

Ample parking, expertly paired treats and a chance to survey many different expressions of this engaging grape variety await us.  Petite Sirah has an inky, brooding character.  It will stain your teeth purple. And you will love it!  You simply cannot beat this opportunity to learn more in the best way possible---by experience. 58 Winemakers and 36 purveyors of tempting taste treats will be on hand to show you just how engaging this wine can be.  Names you know and love already like Ridge, Stags Leap and more will be on hand with some that may become your new favorites.  As for the snacks, one word: Paella!  And tons of other sweet/salty/savory yumminess.

Best of luck with our contest,  but if you want to hedge your bets, bloomspot has an awesome deal here: Click here for half off tix at bloomspot

I used to know the answer to this question, but methinks I lost that particular brain cell by drinking too much Petite Sirah!

Nevertheless, I Postulate that the little-known Parent is Peloursin.

Thanks for hosting this contest, BrixChicks!

I love a contest and I think I know the answer so here is my best guess... Peloursin. Petite Sirah for everyone!

Yeh, yeh, it's a cross with Peloursin, but Petite Sirah (as most commonly spelled) should really be named as Durif.
