Unit price per
Grown above the sandstone quarry at the Bassi Vineyard located in Avila Beach, this block has an ocean view. The Bassi Vineyard was planted in 1999 and has always been farmed using organic practices. This fermented wine is 55% Pinot Gris and 45% Pinot Noir.
The Pinot Gris was fermented with 100% whole cluster and the Pinot Noir grapes were destemmed on top of the fermentation. The wine fermented with native yeast and then was gently pressed in the wooden basket press.
The wine aged for 7 months in old french oak barrels then racked for the first time to bottle, without fining or filtration, with minimal sulfur used.
Think candied red fruit, crushed pomegranate, white pepper and dried herbs

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.
