Scar of the Sea is a collaboration between co-owners Mikey Guigni and Michael Brughelli who first met while in college at Cal Poly and share a love of the ocean and wine. Together, Mikey and Michael look to make quality wines based on location, climate and soils with minimal manipulation in the winery. They work directly with growers at carefully selected vineyard sites, aiming to craft wines that show where they are grown. All of their vineyards are influenced by the sea, with maritime soils and climates that reflect California's Central Coast.
The 2019 Methode Ancestrale Rosé of Pinot Noir comes from the Topotero Vineyard, located in Avila Beach, San Luis Obispo County. The grapes are whole-cluster pressed and fermented with native yeasts in oak barrels, then transferred to the glass bottle to complete fermentation. The result is a lightly colored, off-dry sparkling wine with a soft mousse and flavors of fresh berries, ripe citrus and fresh herbs. A great way to cool off on a hot day or enjoy with a lazy afternoon and plate of charcuterie and cheese.
