Description: Nestled on a 156-acre wine estate in the heart of Sonoma County minutes...
Nestled on a 156-acre wine estate in the heart of Sonoma County minutes from downtown Santa Rosa, Paradise Ridge Winery offers spectacular natural vistas overlooking the Russian River Valley. Expansive decks and terraces open to panoramic landscapes, including rolling vineyards and pastoral wine country scenery. Visitors can sample exciting wines in our newly renovated tasting room. Winery guests are invited to relax and enjoy “The most beautiful view in Sonoma County”.This stunning wine country property was discovered in 1977 by Walter Byck & Marijke Byck-Hoenselaars. The winery was founded in 1991 and is family owned & operated. Every attention to detail is personally overseen to give an exceptional and complete wine country experience. Wander through the outdoor sculpture exhibit in Marijke’s Grove, enjoy the Fountain Grove Winery historical exhibit or bring a picnic to savor with a bottle of our outstanding wines. For those planning a wedding or special event, Paradise offers a romantic & magical setting. Whatever your fantasy, Paradise Ridge Winery is a wine country experience not to be missed.

We had a two for one coupon for this winery and decided to try it. The view from this winery was gorgeous as it overlooked the vineyards. They encouraged you to walk around the grounds and enjoy the view with your wine tasting. There are several different seating areas on the property including some comfortable couches. The wine samples were... More

This winery is on the top of a mountain offering endless views! The wine tasting area is indoors with an incredible view of the valley and vineyard below. The wine tastes great and they offer a great selection for tasting.

This winery was great, mainly because of the grounds. There is fun and interesting art work on the property, which makes it more than just visiting a winery. The view from the top of the tasting room area is also nice, with a great patio. I like that it's not a huge American Factory for wine making. The only disappointment... More

While the wines were not our favorites, the place is beautiful and the staff is great. It was a nice visit that I would recommend.

We booked tickets to attend "Paradise Sunsets" and are so happy we did! This is offered on Wednesday evenings during the summer, and I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to relax, drink good wine and enjoy a beautiful sunset in a relaxed setting. The fact that they only sell a certain amount of tickets ensures that everyone can... More

This winery is impressive because of its location, art sculptures throughout the property & the hillside vistas of the Russian River appellation below. The place is great for weddings &they have stellar wines.

The view was amazing! The wine was good but pricey and, unfortunately, our server was distracted with preparing for an event that evening. Bring a picnic or snacks with you and hang out a while. Lots of unique art pieces throughout the property.

I contacted several wineries in this area for a wedding venue (we live near Seattle and have never been to wine country). Paradise winery was the ONLY one to respond with a phone call from a wedding coordinator - Denise. Not only was she AMAZING, but when we got there the day before our wedding to pick a ceremony site... More
