Six of us visited Scribe one Sunday lunchtime. We shared a delicious bottle of wine and an excellent picnic lunch. The views over the winery are great. We had two small children with us and there was plenty of space for them to play. The only criticism is the fact that there is only one rest room so queues were long.

Beautiful Hacienda tasting on a gorgeous day with excellent service. 4 wines, large tasting board with generous portions of yummy salad. The focaccia was THE BEST especially with the warm potted cheese. Scribe had fun mocktails for our teens too!

Had a wonderful tasting with Ellie as our guide. Love their reds. The snacks are amazing and very plentiful. More than we could eat. We were wine club members for several years. Stopped for a couple of years and now are back. Missed their great wine

I have been coming to Napa/Sonoma for over 20 years. We stopped here today and this has become one of the most pretentious, pompous and unfriendly wineries I have ever been to. I came here a few years ago and it was wonderful. Today - not so much. With all of the choices of vineyards to go to in Napa/Sonoma, no need to come to come Scribe.

Driving up to Scribe, you are stunned by the gorgeous grounds and the hacienda. The winery itself is extremely charming, but that is where the good impression ends. We were pleasantly greeted upon arrival, but after we were seated, the service turned to terrible. It is obviously a very hipster/California casual vibe, but the waiter/waitresses took that vibe and ran. We were not given any information about the history of the winery. At one point one of the waitresses asked if we knew anything about Scribe; we replied we did not, expecting her to elaborate, but to our shock, she replied, "cool" and just walked off. For one of the wines, she just came to the table and poured, not explaining what is was, the year, etc. I guess she assumed we would look at the tasting menu? The small plates were "ok", but overall, definitely not worth $60/person. The wine was actually the worst I had had the entire trip. Don't waste your time at Scribe unless you are only going to take selfies or to instagram the view...

Scribe is definitely a see and be seen winery. Gorgeous setting, but there's better wine and food elsewhere in the valley.

The property is a beautiful hacienda home, with luscious grounds. Unfortunately the service team could use some customer relations training. From the moment arrived at the reception table and we were seated, we felt ignored and rushed. Rushed to drink your 4 wine samples and eat the small portions food pairings.There was no conversation from the woman who served our wine pairings, and she seemed to be in a hurry to serve us and be done work. If I didn’t ask, I would have never known the answers to questions about your wines and history. There was no description of where each variety of grapes were grown on the property or what was planted in the gardens. For the $60 we paid we could have had wine and food else where and been treated with much more respect. I will not be returning. By the way go to the winery next door they are amazing !

We went to Scribe for a tasting with our son, daughter in law and new grandson. They are wine club members and so we were able to do the tasting at picnic tables under market umbrellas. The sun was setting and it was such a beautiful setting. The basket of foods paired to the selection of wines was fresh and tasty. We really enjoyed all of the wines and also enjoyed interacting with the Scribe staff. We particularly enjoyed the Pinot Noir Nouveau...so fresh! Also loved the Chardonnay. Such a special introduction to the Napa Valley! We will definitely look forward to returning in the future...

My girlfriend booked the food wine pairing here. It was $60 per person for 4 wines and small plates. Definitely not enough to call it a meal, more like a really large snack. The food was very good and the wines were nice. The scenery and the house are awesome! The weather here is amazing. It was a very calm and tranquil experience. Our server was excellent, very knowledgeable and entertained all of my girlfriend’s questions on everything.

This is a very nice experience for couples or a small intimate group. No complaints other than perhaps a bit expensive for what you get. But not ridiculously so. Not sure it would warrant a repeat visit but certainly worth doing once.

As a new member we enjoyed an excellent wine tasting experience when we received our first allocation.
Not easy to find with its small sign at the entrance driveway but you start to see the venue as you drive up the hill. Member tasting is up the hill from the Hacienda, so we still have that experience to come.
Go on a nice day to benefit from the tables overlooking some of their vineyards. Well informed staff takes you through tasting of the wines you’re picking up and then some. You can picnic too.
Excellent Pinot Noirs, and Chardonnay. Others to try another time.
