Because it just had to happen, PS I Love You is Launching International Petite Sirah Day, August 5, 2023, with Dark & Delicious. PS I Love You is 21 years old, and we’re legally old enough to enjoy wine. We’re also really ready to celebrate Dark & Delicious, again! This is our signature event, holding our first one in 2006, at Rosenblum Cellars. It had a couple year run and was really lots of fun. The venue, however, became a bit too small for growth, so we were on the move. We decided to hold it at the Palace of Fine Arts, but there were so many car break-ins and flat tires, it was unreasonable to ask anyone to return.

Rock Wall’s D&D venue was a retired, military airplane hanger, converted to a winery, and became our next venue. It was a great place with lots of space, but that also ran its course. Copia was then our new home, for a few of years. As we were planning our third party, COVID arrived. D&D regrettably had to be tabled, so we took a hiatus. With an event always in the background, I wondered what to do next to make it really outstanding. I finally asked the members of PS I Love You for thoughts, perhaps at a member winery?

Always specializing and focused on the heritage grapes of Petite Sirah and Zinfandel, Robert Biale (of Robert Biale Vineyards) immediately responded. That made my day (month, year) and Dark & Delicious has been resurrected. And, on its way ever since.
