Andrew Mariani, Kristof Anderson, and Andrew Avellar consider themselves the scribes of their land. This land consists of 150 acres of Arrowhead Mountain and the historic Rogue Ridge that rise dramatically above the Northeastern sky, above the valley floor and foothill bench.
On this land, they practice “Forever Wild Farming” which aims to integrate farming into the existent wild ecosystem. This practice is based on the understanding that a vineyard managed in harmony with the greater natural environment will yield a more site-specific, terroir-driven grape. Scribe Winery intends to make wines that faithfully reflect what the vineyard naturally expresses.
The volcanic, ashy and mineral-rich soils of this cool-climate region are ideal for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The property’s Southwest border marks the dividing line between the Carneros and Sonoma Valley Viticultural Appellations, while its Northeast border sits on the Sonoma and Napa County line. Scribe is an ecotone, a distinct microclimate created by the convergence of San Pablo Bay marine influence, Petaluma Gap winds, and the steep herbaceous terrain of Arrowhead Mountain.
