Ode To Joy
You’re on a beach. Early dusk, still warm. You’re listening to waves and watching playful little birds. That’s the Piro Piro Piccolo 2010 Pinot Grigio 6 Pack.
Not familiar with the Piro Piro Piccolo? Check out the coasts of Central California and you’ll find them. They’re little sandpipers, padding up and down the packed sands, kicking through the tides. See them run and you might laugh. That’s the feeling Greg and Mike are hoping for.
Oh, Greg is Greg Martellotto from Martellotto Cellars and Mike’s Mike Roth from the Demetria Estate. Think of this as their side project, like the way a professional comedy writer will sometimes hit an open mike night. With the Piro Piro Piccolo 2010 Pinot Grigio 6 Pack, they can take some chances just to see what happens, just to see if it makes you smile. Because that’s exactly what the Piro Piro Piccolo 2010 Pinot Grigio 6 Pack was created to do.
These bottles are full of a wine that’s bright and lively. Green apples, lemon citrus, some Manuka honey… aw, you can feel it, can’t you? It’s like a smile in your taste buds, just wanting to burst out. You don’t have to hide it, you know. That’s what they’re hoping for! That’s what the Piro Piro Piccolo 2010 Pinot Grigio 6 Pack is all about!
Pair it with shrimp scampi or baked fish. Throw down some roast chicken or maybe a nice grilled filet of sole. Hey, if it’s your thing, you can even drink it straight from the bottle. Greg and Mike don’t judge. As long as you’re grinning, what they’re doing is working.
Fine wine doesn’t have to always be so serious, does it? Because we think the Piro Piro Piccolo 2010 Pinot Grigio 6 Pack proves the answer is no. And then possibly hits you in the face with a cream pie.

This is not your garden variety Pinot Grigio. Bright and lively, the wine is redolent with green apples and lemon citrus in addition to Manuka honey and an intriguing texture (from lees stirring) that make this wine a delight to drink. Enjoyed on its own or with a variety of foods. Consider sautéed shrimp scampi, any grilled or baked fish over a bed of spinach. The wine has sufficient weight and bright lemon acidity that it would pair well with roast chicken, too.
