Paradigm is by far one of our favorite wineries to visit. Greg is so awesome, we always enjoy the wines and conversation with him. He always surprises us by bringing out something special, we never leave empty handed. We are looking forward to coming back up in June for the club member party!

At $25 a tasting I would expect better wines, better service and just a friendlier atmosphere. The wines are good, but not great & the tasting experience is marginal. You can do much better in Napa!

Went to Paradigm same day as Far Niente. Although they are both excellent, they are great compliments as they are total opposites. Far Niente is "glitz & glamour", Paradigm is about as low-key (in a good way) as a winery can be. Very friendly, nice little tour, very generous tasting. Their Zinfandel was awesome!

We made this the last stop of our day and were surprised by the relaxed atmosphere and the great taste of the wines. There isn't a formal tasting room, but you are given generous pours by a knowledgeable guy, with an interesting bartender-esqu personality. The wines were also some of our favorite, with all the grapes grown on the estate... More

We love Paradigm wine, they never disappoint! We set up an appointment before hand to do a tasting. This is a small winery with some big wines! We always love Greg, the person doing the tastings, he is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor, we of course bought several bottles of wine, even though we just received... More

Was taken here on our private tour with Max. Fun, hip spot we did enjoy. I bought the '06 Merlot which I've now drank and loved so smooth. Also bought the 2000 Zinfandel! Here's hoping....

This is a very special winery... Their focus is on quality and this dictates their whole philosophy. While other wineries are introducing 2011vintages, paradigm has only 2009, because the wine 'needed more time'. Superb wine at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend.

We arrived about at what we thought was our appointment time, and we were greeted with comments that we were late. It turns out the driving company that arranged our tour gave us the wrong time by 30 minutes, but we felt admonished. Sort of set a bad tone for the tour. The tasting was outside of the office, and... More

Greg, the owner's brother taught us about the whole wine making experience in way that we could actually understand! He was an excellent teacher and host! We walked around the property, tasted grapes off the vines, smelled the toasted barrels and sipped the current release wines. After visiting several appointment only wineries all weekend, we learned the most about wine... More

Paradigm wines are on the top of our charts so we had to make a visit during our trip to Napa this year. The staff was super friendly and the whole experience was quite personalized and relaxed. We stood out near the vines, saw where the barrels are stored then proceeded back inside for our tasting. A great experience overall... More
