Scar of the Sea | 'Vinos de los Ranchos' Pinot Noir

If you could only serve one bottle this year

Skip to product information

A beautiful and wildly likeable Pinot Noir. Richly perfumed – like a sachet of pomegranate, rose petals, and goji berries, with a bit of dried herbs. Soft and silky, like fruit compote spread over ocean-sprayed earth. Husband and wife team Mikey and Gina, make this wine from two organic vineyards in Santa Maria and soften it with some older French oak. This couple makes some crazy good wine – and we’re into it! (Gina also has her own label called “Lady of the Sunshine” – keep an eye out for some of that when it comes in.)

Delicious With

We found this wine and instantly wanted a holiday table of food! This is definitely one of the wines – if not the main wine – to serve at your holiday meal. Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, New Years, company holiday party, or friend’s dinner party. It’s for the turkey, ham, brisket, cheese topped with cranberry relish, pâté and dried cherries, stuffing and sides.

Their Cred

Scar of the Sea was started in 2012 by Mikey & Gina Giugni in San Luis Obispo, California. They work with farmers who are instrumental in farming for the future and making wines with as little intervention as possible. Their 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. Each vineyard site is carefully selected, so they can make wines that mean something to them, and us!
