Sorry this is so self serving, but I have to plug my non-profit. It can’t survive without the support of the wine industry or consumers.

This is our one annual consumer event for PSILY, which keeps PSILY alive and marketing.

Thanks to our sponsor support:

The event is called Dark & Delicious, because it’s an event that showcases Dark, gorgeous Petite Sirahs, and Delicious foods that highlight both the foods and wines.

With 41 preeminent Petite Sirah wine companies and 26 fabulous Napa and Bay Area restaurants and/or food caterers, there’s nowhere else that you can have this much fun for only $60 per person.

Free parking, no gratuity… It’s awesome. One year someone asked me if we had doggie bags. I got his point, but we don’t do that, because it’s just too complicated… Yes, it’s that good!
