Sonoma’s Indie Scene | Scribe Winery



Part I of II.

My hypothesis was that the grounds of Scribe Winery in Sonoma provide an exceptional setting for an enjoyable lunch in Northern California. To find out if my theory proved true I challenged myself to make the trip up to the two hundred acre farm to eat and drink with founder Andrew Mariani and the rest of the Scribe camp. It was a tough assignment, but I’m very committed to the truth so I made the trip. I can say with certainty, that after extensive testing of the various Scribe wines throughout the property, it is indeed an outstanding experience.

If you are interested in wine and good food, do yourself a favor and visit Scribe at some point. Take your better half and visit for the weekend. I can assure you that it is one of the better places you will ever discover. If you belong to the Scribe Viticultural Society (their wine club) you can dine with the Scribe folks when you pick-up your wine. Much of the Scribe production sells out, so joining the SVS is a smart move even if you don’t end up dining at the farm.


Over my past few visits to Napa and Sonoma, I’ve found some nice little independent producers that are worth checking out. I’ve grown fond of labels like Tallulah and Tournesol with a little exploration and guidance from Doug White’s Behind the Label wine tour. I’ve mentioned those makers before, but as I continue to enjoy the wine, I thought it worth repeating.

As these photos will tell you, the low-key days at Scribe are full of all sorts of appetizing bits and pieces. It’s a nice setting to enjoy delicious food and great wine. As far as indie acts go, Scribe is definitely one you want to see live.

    Lovely article and quite informative. Shame I can’t try these wines in Paris. The photos are perfect for a bit of California Dreamin’.

    Just toured Sonoma, and while Scribe was on our list of places to hit up, it sadly fell by the wayside. Now kicking myself for such an error. Will get myself correct for next time.
