San Francisco is amazing, but I always enjoy escaping the city for other bay area adventures. This weekend I drove to Sonoma with a few friends. We started the day with brunch at The Fremont Diner. The diner is conveniently located in wine country and they pride themselves in sourcing all ingredients locally. I love the fact that you leave your name with the host and then make your way to the yard where you’ll order a mimosa or milkshake from an old streamline. I’ve never waited more than 15-20 mins for a table and their menu is very reasonably priced.
Next stop, Scribe Winery! If you haven’t been before, this place is not to be missed. Somewhere between the gorgeous vineyards, rustic design, and delicious wine – I always find myself feeling like I’m finally resetting from a busy week in the city. One thing that resonates with me is the fact that Scribe embraces the history of the land. The old architecture and artifacts creates a beautiful anthology of stories. The people that work at Scribe have got to be the friendliest, down-to-earth and not to mention trendiest servers! Before bringing out the wine, they will gladly introduce themselves as if you’ve just met an old friend for a drink and eventually bring out the wine while sharing some interesting details about the vineyard.
If you’d like to make a trip to Scribe, be sure to call ahead. They can be quite busy, making it difficult to make a last minute reservation. If you join their membership club, it’s quite easy to reserve a spot on the hill with a blanket overlooking the vineyard.
