Where can I buy a bottle of Ortrugo?

My favorite summer wine is delicious bubbly Ortrugo from the hills of Piacenza. Via Emilia's wine list has Ortrugo, but I have never been able to find this wine in a store ... does anyone know where can I buy a bottle of Ortrugo in Manhattan or Brooklyn?

      I did some research on line myself, and had no luck. Too bad ... ortrugo is less frizzy and has a deeper flavor (I lack a good wine vocabulary, but would say there is a hint of pear) than prosecco, is reasonably priced, and has an interesting story.

        If it's that good, then you should ask someone at Vino on 27th St to order it for you. If there's a minimum, maybe you can split a case with someone.
        If you'd like, you could let me know who you speak with at the store.
        You've piqued my interest. Always looking for a summer beverage.

    2. still looking for Ortrugo? will be available on the East Coast by February 2010, with Malvasia and Gutturnio. For more info do as i did, they are the marketing people of this new comer!! enjoy
