In part 2 of our interview with Jo Diaz, we get to meet and taste the wines of two members of the organization Diaz founded and runs, P.S. I Love You, an advocacy organization for Petite Sirah. Meet Theodora Lee, aka Theo-patra, Queen of the Vineyards, at Theopolis Vineyards in the Yorkville Highlands of Anderson Valley in Mendocino. Theodora is a partner and trial lawyer at Littler Mendelson by day and vintner by night! We also meet Mandy Donovan, vintner and winemaker of Merisi Wines, another member of PS, I Love You and Petite Sirah advocate.

If you’re curious about the mystique of Petite Sirah, or a raving fan of this rich and juicy wine, tune in to learn what growing conditions this variety favors. Learn about how PS I Love You promotes the grape through its events. And enjoy how this variety expresses itself in the bottle as we taste through Theodora’s and Mandy’s very different expressions of Petite Sirah in this episode with Jo Diaz. [EP31]
