2020 Pinot Gris & Pinot Noir CoFerment, Bassi Vineyard
Grown above the sandstone quarry at the Bassi Vineyard, this block has an ocean view. 1 ton of Pinot Gris was picked with ½ ton of Pinot Noir. The Pinot Gris was all wholecluster and we destemmed the Pinot Noir on top of the Gris. The wine was fermented for 11 days, then gently pressed in the wooden basket press. Bottled 8 month later without fining or filtering.
Think dry flowers, blood orange, light & perfumed with island inspiration

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.
