PSILY has PoSted the sPecificS for the Petite Sirah (P)Symposium, which will be held this year at Concannon Vineyard's new tasting room, at 4596 Tesla Road, Livermore, CA, on Tuesday August 4, 2009. For all the fun, go to http://www.petitesirahsymposium.com .
I will do my best to be there for this fantastic event, work permitting, but with job and my living situation currently in flux for the month of August, I can't promise anything.
Again, whereas Dark & Delicious is consumer-oriented, the PSymPoSium is oriented to the wineries. It features sessions on Enology, Viticulture, and Marketing, and ends with a trade and media tasting.
Jo Diaz has more details about it on her own site.
