Scribe Winery | Sonoma, California
Scribe isn't new to blogging or Instagram scene. On the contrary, it feels like the winery of choice for stylish, parentally funded hipsters of San Francisco. Members can enjoy sunny weekends on the Scribe hillside, sipping on a discounted $38.00 bottle of rose atop a colorful Mexican blanket. Non-members can schedule a tasting at one of Scribe's charming wooden picnic tables overlooking vineyards and an iconic palm tree lined road. Everything from the fresh flowers on the table to the almonds from the owners' parents' farm is on point.
Tasting are hard to reserve on weekends when Scribe becomes the Dolores Park of Sonoma, so it's worth taking a day off of work to enjoy one on a weekday. We tasted four wines over the course of a couple hours and I walked away with a bottle of rose, but was tempted by the unique 2015 Skin Fermented Chardonnay. Bottled in a 500mL bottle that looks more like a contraband bottle of rum than a wine bottle, the packaging is a nod to the property's past owners who were rum-runners. As the owners renovate a beautiful Spanish style home on the property, they are learning more history of the place through hundred year old artifacts left in the house.
Even with all the wineries I haven't been to in Sonoma and Napa, I would return to Scribe for a picture perfect afternoon of wine tasting on the hill.
