Paradigm is a small winery but they have some of my favorite wines. You won't have a fancy tasting room but will get excellent wine and find friendly staff and probably meet the owner.

I like the winery and the guide was very friendly. My only problem was we had to stand during the tasting which was a little bit uncomfortable for me.

In a good way this small winery has no tables or chairs so it is "stand & taste". Friendly folks here who make great wine with out all the pomp and flourish of some wineries. Kind of a stand and deliver experience. We have had Paradigm wine in our cellar for a number of years and love their Cabs. An... More

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.
