  • We scheduled a tasting at Scribe, though after arriving we found that you clearly didn't need a reservation. The tastings are done outdoors, and many people bring blankets to relax on the grassy hill ...  more »

  • Was suggested to try this place so we googled the website which said open from 10:30 to 5--- we show up and were met by a dog who is barking and nipping at me. Get to the top and was welcoming by a man asking if we have a reservation (there was only 2 of us). We did not have a reservation. He told us that they were not available today as they were delivering to their customers this weekend. What? You have no time for new customers? And no signs up front stating so? We weren't looking for free handouts- but wanted to ship a case of good wine home to us. I'd suggest Schug winery just down the street. They were amazing and inviting. Scribe lost a new customer because they were too busy to even ask what we may be looking for. Bad, bad customer service!!! We bought two cases from someone else.
  • The view is amazing, but that's about all I can recommend. Some suggestions for the winery: please have signage from the street, something other than a spray painted sign on a piece of plywood. Also, have a list of the wines that you're serving on the website. At $35/tasting, I was disappointed to find out you only were serving chardonnay and pinot noir, which I don't care for. Offer more imaginative food pairing than what I have in my car for snacks - we were served 2 small slices of cheese, a few baguette slices, a handful of almonds and an apricot. Although our server was nice, and tried to explain the wines she was pouring, it seemed like she was struggling to find words to discuss the wines. The whole place felt like an amateurish operation.
  • They produce mostly what I think is called "Nouveau-California" wines that don't really fit into the standard Sonoma Chard/Pinot Noir or occasional Syrah category. A nice informative tasting in a uniquely picturesque setting.
  • Favorite place in Sonoma and favorite place to watch a sunset. The staff is very nice, very helpful, and provide great recommendations for the area. Delicious wine, a nice cheese plate, and beautiful views!
  • My experience of Scribe wasn't bad, but it wasn't as stunning as some other reviews may make it out to be. There were great views, and there were delicious snacks with the tasting, but it was $25 for 4 pours — three of which were chardonnay. Our server was sweet but not very attentive, and we spent a lot of time between pours waiting. The signage coming in was *terrible* and both we and the friends we met almost wound up at the giant house that's in the middle of the area. The skin-on chardonnay was interesting, but not necessary. The idea of "always experimenting" is okay, but there are established methods of wine making for a reason. If you're going for a leisurely afternoon in the sun and shade, this is a great place. If you're going for a variety of wines, looking for something to buy, and to experience true Sonoma wines, skip Scribe, where you're paying for the ambiance and experience, not the wine tasting itself.
