Inspired by the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean that shake the salty sea all day and night, Salt Shaker Picpoul is an exhilaratingly fresh white. It’s crafted from Picpoul, a southern French grape that reaches new levels of expressiveness in sunny California.

Delightfully dry and zippy, Salt Shaker offers waves of fresh citrus, peach and floral notes, complemented by a classic mineral hint. There’s a vibrant acidity here and a mouthwatering finish that Sauvignon Blanc fans will love. It even won a silver medalat the Sunset International Wine Competition. Pull out your bottle when you have white wine lovers over and see if they can guess the grape!

Best-selling wine writer Oz Clarke says the name Pipoul means ‘lipstinger’ (which is hard to imagine for such a mild-mannered white), while southern French locals claim it refers to the habit of local chickens (‘poules’) pecking at fallen grapes. We think top critic Olly Smith sums it up best: “Brilliant value and zinging with lemony freshness...if you like white wine, you’ll love Picpoul.”

Between its lip-smacking flavors and lighter alcohol level (just 10% ABV), Salt Shaker is a wonderful aperitif that’s made for pouring generously. It also pairs beautifully with fresh seafood and crisp salads. Order your share today.
