Dark & Delicious is the preeminent, annual Petite Sirah event in all of the world:

  • enjoying 60 important California wineries pouring their Petites, some very rare, older vintage
  • over 30 fine food restaurants, specialty food producers, and caterers

…all of whom support this Seventh Annual Petite Sirah extravaganza.

Each year, the National Pork Board sponsors this event, for very a good reason. It’s the meshing of food and wine, in one very perfect way. The National Pork Board supplies the pork to the foodies, so that our chefs will “Be inspired.” The proof has been in the pudding, as the saying goes, with people leaving at the end of the night very satisfied.

Wine writer Steve Heimoff has said of this event: Dark & Delicious is one of the more fun events of its kind. There’s tons of great food provided by local restaurants, and scores of wineries pour their Petite Sirahs (plus there’s usually some additional stuff “under the table”). It’s $63.00 a person, which is cheap considering you can eat a bellyful of really good food and drink to your heart’s content. And no parking hassles: There’s a huge lot well staffed by young men who how to direct the traffic.
