Scratch | Story

Scratch is a project of Winemaker Sabrine Rodems producing small-lot Riesling, Sparkling Wine, Grenache, Pinot Noir and Cabernet from Monterey, Arroyo Seco, Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Cruz Mountains AVA's.

Sabrine received her Bachelor's degree from UCLA in Theatre, Film and Television and worked in the film and theatre industry for many years before deciding to go back to school to earn her Master's of Science in Viticulture and Enology from UC Davis. For the past 17 years Sabrine has been making highly acclaimed wines from some of the best vineyards in California.

Working in the Central Coast and Monterey area has given her access to some of the best cool climate grapes in the world.

"What I love most about Monterey, the Arroyo Seco, Santa Lucia Highland and the Santa Cruz Mountains is that I have four geologically different sites at my fingertips. Getting to work with bench Pinot Noir and river bed Riesling and Grenache, and Coastal Cabernet makes my work exciting and the wine exciting as well. Winemaking is the best of both worlds the amalgamation of science and art."

Woman Led

We highlight women led businesses on our site because most winery owners and winemakers are men. To earn this tag the winery must be majority women owned or have a female winemaker.

Sustainable

Sustainable practices help reduce the impact of farming, manufacturing, and other industries. To earn this tag, wineries or the vineyards they source from are certified by third party organizations.

1st Gen

Starting your own business is hard, especially in the wine industry where there are so many uncontrolled variables. Wineries earn this tag if the current owners and operators are also the founders.

Family

Family owned and operated businesses are an important part of the US economy. To earn this tag, a winery has two or more family members involved, and the majority ownership lies within the family.
