Toasts are often one of my favorite parts of a wedding. They’re full of so many authentic emotions and reactions. And it’s pretty incredible to witness the amount of love that your friends and family bring to your day and hear it verbalized. 🥂
Scribe is a ✨magical✨ place where your idea of happiness is completely transformed! Welcomed with a glass of their rosé of pinot noir, I was brought to my table overlooking the vineyard and patio where strangers mingled, smiled, and soaked up the sunshine🌞 As I enjoyed my meal and four glasses of delicious wine, I felt like I had discovered the meaning of pure bliss🙇♀️🤩 If you are planning a trip to Sonoma or Napa, Scribe is a MUST visit winery to put at the top of your list! ❤️: Scribe 2016 Estate Chardonnay 🍇: Chardonnay 👄: Unoaked, fresh tropical fruit, minerality 💌: Although Scribe’s tasting included four wines I want to tell you about their chardonnay. Most people have a strong opinion about chardonnay; it’s either all they drink or they avoid it at all costs. What both of these types of people share is the idea that chardonnay is an oakey, buttery, and heavy white wine. I used to think that until I discovered that it doesn’t have to be aged in oak, and in Chablis it often sees little or no oak. Scribe’s chardonnay is more French in style than the buttery style typically made in California. It can completely change your opinion of chardonnay, which it did for Marissa Ross (wine editor at Bon Appétit) and me!
4 years ago I attended a film photography workshop held at beautiful Scribe Winery, taught by the lovely Emily Scott. We got to shoot in the Hacienda (a former speakeasy and brothel) before it was renovated, while sipping Scribe’s incredible wines. I JUST got my film developed 😂. Next is a visit back to the Hacienda to see the remodel. 📷 🍷
It was so so special to get the family tour of @scribewinery yesterday. The history of this property, the perfect design that preserves all the lives the hacienda has led and getting to meet the @scribewinery fam was such a treat. Can’t wait to come back, thank you so much guys!
