Scribe Vineyard Insectaries

An insectary is a continuous grouping of plants selected and arranged to attract, nourish, and provide habitat for beneficial insects and birds. An arrangement of insectaries across a winery creates a “push / pull effect” that draws beneficial species through the vineyard, preying on pests and pollinating vines as they go. At Scribe, insectaries follow natural or existing lines through the site—the seasonal stream below the “Moon Garden,” and along China Camp; the northern property line; the historic Palm Drive—forming long corridors of habitat for coverage across the entire vineyard.
