This NV Solera blend of Chardonnay was established in 2014. Its composition is made up of 50% Solera base, built over time from 2014-2019 which have been aged together in 500L barrels and the other 50% is 2020 Old Vine Chardonnay from the Rancho Vinedo Vineyard that was aged for 18 months in 228 L barrels. The 2 components of the wine are blended right before bottling. This wine is a play on richness and acidity, reduction and oxidation. This is a special wine I have been building and caring for for a long time that I am extremely proud of.

Scar of the Sea was established in 2012 and is owned & operated by Mikey & Gina Giugni in San Luis Obispo, California.
The Central Coast offers us the opportunity to live, work, and play by the sea, who is influential to the vineyards we work with and how we spend our time. The ocean’s presence has shaped our way of life along with the climate, soils, and geology of the coastal vineyards we work with that fall under the spell of her fog each day.
Scar of the Sea focuses on working with farmers who are instrumental in farming for the future and making wines with as little intervention as possible. Our wines are made with the intention to tell a story of where they come from, the people who farm them, and reflect each vintage under the California sun.
