I hear this wonderment all of the time about Petite Sirah… “Why is it still so obscure?” Well, one would think that it is. What it is, though, is a best kept secret, sort of like my grandfather’s blueberry patch. As a kid, we’d go blueberry picking, high up a mountainside in Wales, Maine. Even […]

Petite Sirah in Paso, at last we’re taking PS education to the people

PS I Love You‘s mission has always been, since 2002… To promote, educate, and legitimize Petite Sirah as a heritage variety, with a special emphasis on its terroir uniqueness.

More brewhaha from Andy Bluehaha

No offense, Andy. More Brewhaha and More Bluehaha rhyme. You know how story titles go, to capture people into a story. You have my utmost respect. The Tasting Panel Magazine with Meridith May (publisher, editor) has been a true champion of Petite Sirah in the past. Today (yesterday as you read this), it was brought […]

Trauma Drama and Obama

Trauma Drama – “PS I Love You has done nothing to educate consumers,” he wrote, when asked to provide content for a Petite Sirah story about to be written. I was aghast. This is someone who’s closely watched PS I Love You for the last 14 years, and someone who has make some promises, but […]
