Scribner Bend Vineyards

Nestled along the meandering curves of the Sacramento River, Scribner Bend Vineyards stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of a family whose agricultural roots penetrate deep into the rich soils of the Sacramento River Delta. For five generations, the Scribner family has cultivated these lands, weaving their story into the very fabric of the region.

The origin of this enduring legacy dates back to 1893, when George Washington Scribner, drawn by the fertile promise of the Delta, established his family on a pear ranch at a location known then as Silver Bend. This strategic curve in the river, a bustling hub for shipping, marked the beginning of the Scribner family’s profound connection to the land and the community. As years turned into decades, the farm, like the bend it occupied, took on the name of its stewards, becoming known as Scribner Bend.

The latest chapter in this storied history began in 1992 when Mark George Scribner, II, recognizing the potential of the family land for viticulture, planted the first rows of wine grapes. This visionary step, primarily focusing on Chardonnay and Tempranillo grapes, paved the way for the transformation of the property’s historic 1918 barn into the heart of Scribner Bend Vineyards. Together with his wife Lorraine, Mark intertwined the vineyard’s development with the fabric of the River Delta community, fostering a place not just for wine production, but for gathering, celebration, and shared experiences.

Opening its doors in 2002, Scribner Bend Vineyards quickly became a beloved fixture in the Sacramento area, known for its exceptional Clarksburg AVA wines and its warm, inviting atmosphere. The success and growth of the vineyard are a direct reflection of its deep community ties, with expansions like the addition of the Barrel Room in 2007 and a picturesque outdoor tent space in 2014 catering to vineyard weddings and private events.

Today, Scribner Bend Vineyards offers more than just wine; it offers an experience.
