It's not too late to get Dark and Delicious!

Not familiar with Dark and Delicious?  It's a super fun event that occurs every year to celebrate all that is wonderful and good tasting around Petit Sirah.  This deeply purple, sometimes high alcohol wine  is often overlooked, but once you try it you will be hooked.

No better place to start than at the annual event put on by Jo Diaz, who works tirelessly to promote this as a labor of love.  It' s a sentiment I can get behind! Especially when you throw all the snacks that are assembled to go with the yummy wine!

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. 60 Winemakers and 30 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.  Tons of other sweet/salty/savory yumminess

Pictured are my two favorite discoveries from last year:
Nosh This Bacon salted caramels
The Crusher Petit Sirah with a juicy kiss of Merlot

When:  Friday, Febrauary 22nd 6pm - 9 pm
Where: Rock Wall Wine Company, 2301 Monarch St., Alameda, CA
What:   60 Producers pouring wines and 30 REstaurants/Specilaty food purveyors

See you there!
