About this project

In 2006, Scribe embarked on a mission to resurrect the Rhinefarm Vineyard in Carneros Valley near Sonoma, one of the oldest vineyards in California. Central to this mission was a reincarnation of its original homestead, the Hacienda. Built in 1915, The Hacienda — formerly known as the “Macintosh House” had survived much neglect and multiple changes over the years.

The reincarnated structure serves as Scribe’s hospitality hub and includes tasting areas, a full-service kitchen for culinary events, and accommodations for visiting chefs. In addition to extensive systems and structural upgrades, its new incarnation aims to tell the story of its evolution, transcendence, and present-day use through both preservation and discreet but legible interventions. Inspired by the late artist David Ireland’s Capp Street Project, the project involved a careful and honest uncovering and preservation of its many layers, which mark the passage of time.
