This vintage of Rose comes from a newly planted and producing vineyard, Casa Contenta, located just west of the Topotero & Bassi Vineyard, in Avila Beach, within the SLO Coast AVA. The Pinot Noir was picked for natural acidity and foot tread to soak on the skins for 4 hours before being whole bunch pressed. The juice was settled overnight then barrel down to old french oak to ferment with native yeast & bacteria. The wine aged on lees for 7 months, bottled unfined and unfiltered, with minimal sulfur used.
Think alpine strawberries, ocean mist, and orange peels

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.
