When you arrive, you immediately notice the beautiful hacienda. It was recently renovated and it is GORGEOUS.
Each room is sparse but thoughtfully decorated. I totally dig this style… It makes me feel like I need to de-clutter my own house, and I’m ok with that.
The host greets with a glass of rosé. (The way all things should be.) And then you are shown to your table on the terrace.
The menu is pre-fixe so once you’re seated, the team brings a few light apps and a glass of chardonnay. While chard is not my favorite, the Scribe chard is similar to a sauv blanc, so I’m cool with it. I’m also super cool with the apps. Some olives, almonds and pickled veggies. NOM.
The second course is phenomenal – roast beef, horseradish aioli, a simple, yet flavorful, salad and amazing bread. It was all perfectly paired with the Scribe Pinot Noir. Wahhhh I want it now.
The last course is fresh, local strawberries for the table. They are perfectly sweet. They’re actually some of the best strawberries I’ve had. (There isn’t a picture because I ate them really fast… but there was also wine involved so it’s also likely that I may have forgotten.)
Ha, I guess that kind of defines my experience at Scribe – delicious and over before I realized it.
This lunch tasting at Scribe is one of those experiences that just makes me happy. I mean, it could be the perfect California weather or the wine, but I give all the credit to Scribe. No detail is overlooked at their hacienda and I have to admit, I’m already planning my trip back. I highly recommend visiting if you get the chance. (But make a reservation first.)
If you’re heading to California Wine Country, I highly recommend visiting if you get the chance. (But make a reservation first.)
