Scribner Bend Vineyards is located along the beautiful Sacramento River, in an area known as Scribner's Bend, just 12 miles south of the Capitol and Downtown Sacramento. The Scribner family finds the warm summer days and cool evening breezes to be a special microclimate for growing grapes, and the ideal location for intimate weddings and receptions.
Our vineyard creates a romantic, picturesque setting, combining simple elegance and a touch of history. The rustic, elegant charm of the grounds is perfect for outdoor weddings and receptions.
Begin your day in our beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Bungalow; it’s the perfect space for you and your attendants to spend a relaxing, stress-free day. Invite your makeup artist and hairstylist, they’re welcome onsite to coddle and pamper you on your special day. Include your photographer for those wonderful behind the scenes photos of you and your attendants that you’ll cherish forever.
You're all ready and it's time for those dreams to come true!! Make your way down the bridal aisle through mature grapevines and into our Chardonnay Garden to exchange vows. This beautiful, peaceful space was carved right out of our chardonnay vineyard and is the perfect spot to declare your devotion to each other.
Your guests will head from the Chardonnay Garden site to our Sunroom & Courtyard where they’ll mingle while enjoying Scribner Bend Vineyards estate grown wines and domestic beers paired with appetizers passed by our exclusive, in-house catering team.
Through cheers and applause, the new Mr. and Mrs. are introduced to guests as they enter the reception area through our iconic barn doors and onto the circular stone dance floor. Our adjacent 50’ by 60’ reception tent is anchored at one end by a beautiful fountain and at the other end by a gorgeous outdoor fireplace with seating wall. As the sun sets, the tent transforms into a romantic glow of lighting with the roaring fireplace adding to the ambience. Our in-house caterer works with you to create your perfect dinner menu and our award-winning winemaker weighs in as to which wines would best accompany your menu choices.
The Scribner family and staff are well seasoned in creating a stress free environment for our couples, families and guests. On your wedding day leave all your cares behind, we've got this! Just relax and enjoy your evening.

My fiance and I have been wine club members here for three years and got married here on 05-18-19 and I highly recommend them as a wedding venue.Sent on 07/02/2019
As a wedding venue, Scribner Bend exceeded our expectations. We chose them initially because they are close to downtown Sacramento (easy access for all of our friends and family), they have reasonable prices compared to other venues in the region, they have always made us feel like family, the wine is wonderful, and the venue is just gorgeous. It was also a bonus that their exclusive caterer is Paesanos - which just so happens to be our favorite Sacramento restaurant.
Jessica helped make everything run smoothly from the planning stage through execution, and even with last minute changes she was calm and professional and everything went off without a hitch.
The day of our wedding we had to contend with a freak rainstorm (and I mean downpours all day), and my dream of an outdoor garden wedding was crushed (after all, one of the reasons I chose this place was because of the beautiful gardens and vineyards). However, Scribner had a backup plan and we ended up having the ceremony in the barrel room, cocktail hour in the tasting room, and moved the entire reception under the tent in the courtyard. I was amazed at how gorgeous the barrel room ceremony turned out and I had several people mention how they could not believe that was our BACK UP plan... in fact I might even have loved the barrel room more than the chardonnay garden! Moving the ceremony into the cocktail hour space and into the reception area seemed to go smoothly, and Jessica was even able to find some extra umbrellas for guests to use. In spite of the rain, we had a wonderful wedding, our guests had an amazing time, and we got some great pictures. Our guests raved about how pretty the venue was, how great the bartenders were, and how delicious the food was.
I also have to mention that I love that they have the bungalow on site for the bridal party to get ready in - that made the day go very smoothly and there is plenty of room for people to spread out and enjoy themselves. I just wish that the bride and groom were able to stay there overnight!
My wedding is a testimony to the fact that even in torrential downpours - you can have an amazing wedding at Scribner! :)

My husband and I held our wedding here at Scribner on September 29, 2018 and we could not have been more pleased. The professionalism of the staff from our very first visit and tour, to the many emails along the way, made us feel cared for like family. Every detail was carefully considered both in the planning and the day of. We love all the different locations around the property, and renting the bridal bungalow is a must! The menu we chose from Paesano's was incredible, the quick lines at the bars and the timing of our evening, along with the picturesque landscape are just a few reasons why we are constantly getting compliments from our guests. Over the months leading up to our wedding, we stopped in often to enjoy events such as the Chili Cook Off, and eventually became wine club members. We brought our families and friends to the winery for lunch many times and look forward to our first visit back as a married couple. Scribner Bend Vineyards was everything that we needed and wanted for our wedding, and so much more!Sent on 11/25/2018
