This wine comes from historic vines planted in the 1920's, that have been farmed organically by the Galleano Family since 1927. This vineyard site sits due East of Los Angeles in Southern California and is planted to sandy soils and farmed without irrigation. This is a dark wine in nature as the Alicante Boucshe grapes naturally have a red pulp and skin. The wine was made with 25% whole-cluster, fermented with native yeast and pressed in our wooden basket press. It was aged in neutral french oak barrels for 10 months.
Think spiced plum, sarsaparilla, & dusty tannin

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.
