- Founded by vinyl collector, NY somm-legend, Playboy's Food & Wine host and the importer who made 40 oz Rosé a thing, Patrick Capiello started Monte Rio Cellars with his longtime friend, Syrah savant, Pax Mahle, in order to produce low intervention, old school California wines. For their Piquette, water is added to the grape must and Chardonnay juice jump starts the initial fermentation. Second one too.
