A Petite Auction – no small deal

The Ninth Annual Petite Sirah auction has become an exclusive Petite auction; the only one of its kind in the entire world.

[This image was taken in 2014, just before the doors opened for Dark & Delicious Petite Sirah®.]

The US is dominating in the growth of this variety, and has its own marketing group called PS I Love You. This makes this auction the only one of its kind in the world. Each year the Petite auction is a huge hit, raising funds for the 501 (C)(6) non profit… It helps us to educate people throughout the year about Petite Sirah (a cross between Syrah and Peloursin)… and what it isn’t (Syrah).

This is the 2015 Petite Auction

By carefully managing our grape canopy and severely limiting the number of grape clusters per vine we were able to harvest earlier than normal, before another significant rain event that occurred in mid- October.
