Scar of the Sea, "Vino de los Ranchos", Pinot Noir, 2021
Rancho Sisquoc Vineyard, Bien Nacido Vineyard, Rancho Ontiveros Vineyard
Santa Maria Valley, California
Pinot Noir is our first love of wine and we found it important to bring one to your table to share why. Mikey and Gina Giugni are up to a bit of magic down in their beloved Santa Barbara County, making a range of wines that bring together rustic with grace. Vinos de Los Ranchos is their Pinot Noir blend of 3 vineyards, all organically farmed, in Santa Barbara's Santa Maria Valley AVA. Each vineyard is vinified separately and then carefully yet daringly pieced together.The result is as fresh as the ocean air that gave it life, textured with salty brine and rich of dried herbs, flowers and root vegetables. This Pinot Noir stands as an example of good farming, mindful making and something that we feel proud to share with every individual at the table. Our love is real, and you deserve to be in on it.
