Winery Description

Opened in May of 1994, the Paradise Ridge estate is a haven where guests bring their friends to savor vineyard-designated wines and take in sweeping wine country views. Their estate tasting room and events building, as well as their wine making building were destroyed in the fires of 2017. Luckily their vineyards and art survived and became a source of comfort to the community. Rebuilt and opened in the fall of 2019, the tasting room and events building are again a stunning setting to enjoy estate wines.
