There are 17 units left in stock.
About this Wine
Planted in 1918, 70 miles inland from Los Angeles, and certified organic by CCOF, this vineyard is part of California history. The vines are farmed without irrigation in granite rocks and sandy soil surrounded by freeways and track homes. This vineyard is one of the last reminders of an old California. The Palomino grapes were harvested in mid-July, foot tread to soak on skins for 6 days before being pressed. The juice fermented with native yeast in old french oak barrels and aged on lees for 8 months. This wine was bottled without fining or filtration, with minimal sulfur used.

"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."
Scar of the Sea wines are made prioritizing organic vineyard sources, fermenting with native yeast, no fermentation additions, and bottling in the absence of fining/filtration.
