There are two separate segments with this interview between Jose Diaz of Diaz Communications and Miro Tcholakov, the winemaker for Trentadue Winery.

Miro makes wine for both Trentadue Winery and also his own brand, Miro Cellars. Miro’s got the dream job… And, he’s one of the winemakers whom I’ve adored for a very long time. Miro became a member of PS I Love You a long time ago, supporting one of my passions… promoting Petite Sirah. He even registered Miro Cellars, once his own brand was up and running. Also, all we’ve ever shared have been good times and copious laughter, even during tough times. He’s a true wine industry friend.

Video One ~ In Trentadue’s Petite Sirah Vineyards: How Trentadue got into the wine business (via Paul Draper’s suggestion of being only grape growers at the time), and Petite Sirah being grown in their Alexander Valley Vineyard.

Video Two ~ In Trentadue Winery: Miro Talks about coming to the states from Bulgaria, discovering Petite Sirah for the first time and falling in love with the variety. He discusses winemaking techniques, the differences upon the wine from both French and American oak, and the advantages of Petite Sirah in restaurant wine-by-the-glass programs. He also gives great tasting notes for both of the wines presented, the Trentadue and the La Storia.
