“Though only on his eighth harvest at Scar of the Sea, Giugni is already a major influence in the Central Coast beverage game. In 2012, the Cal Poly grad and his business partner, Michael Brughelli, started Scar of the Sea as a dry cider, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and sparkling wine brand. Three years later, he launched the Tin City Cider brand and collaborates with cutting-edge producers. “Despite what you see on Instagram, this is not the luxury life,” he says. “We are grinding 12 to 15 hours a day and working multiple jobs to make this happen.”
