This week we’re revisiting some of the most popular summer stories from the archives. Here’s one:
Brothers Andrew and Adam Mariani are fourth generation California farmers who, after spending time as vineyard hands in Europe, returned to their hometown and bought an old vineyard in the foothills of Sonoma, California, to start their own winery, Scribe.
The early 1900s hacienda was in need of a complete overhaul (it had partially burned down in a fire), so working with architect David Darling of San Francisco firm Aidlin Darling, they restored the interiors without losing the essential character of the place.
The plan included a new kitchen—the only room where they had to start from scratch—for Scribe’s food program. “The kitchen was always going to be a big part of the renovation,” says Andrew. “You can’t have a hacienda without a kitchen.” Darling designed large pivot glass doors, commercial ranges were brought in, and concrete counters were poured. Join us for a tour.
