This was our first visit to wine country and our first winery on our trip. It was a very pretty drive up a twisting and winding road. There were many very interesting artistic creations along the way. The view over all of Santa Rosa was breath-taking. I only wish we could have been there for the Wednesday night sunset party....

This was our first stop of the day and it was a great way to start! The wine was very good and the grounds were beautiful. There's a lot of art on the drive up to the tasting, including a LOVE sign which is very cool. The staff were very friendly and we had a great time at this location.

The view from the winery is amazing and the Wednesday night sunset party was well worth the price of admission. On Wednesday evenings they bring in a food truck and a band and allow people to hangout and watch the sunset. As part of the admission fee you do get to try all of the wines that they are serving...

We have visited Santa Rosa many, many times and I don't know why we never found this winery before. The road leading up to it is quite twisting. There are large art installations in the fields below the winery. The view over all of Santa Rosa was breath-taking. I can only image how beautiful sunsets are from the patio. They... More

Paradise Ridge was okay. The guy pouring our tasting was not all that friendly, engaging, or welcoming. He acted like he couldn't care less if we were there or not. While he wasn't flat-out rude, this was exactly the type of experience we hoped to avoid while touring Wine Country. This was our least favorite winery of the trip. Next... More

This was our first tasting in Santa Rosa and we were impresed. Wish I could remember the girls name that gave the tasting because she deserves a mention, super knowledgeable and friendly. Being that we are more the red/cab drinkers, we were really surprised when we actually liked their Chardonnay. It actually had a buttery taste, never been able to... More

Beth and Niki were helpful and informative regarding our wine tasting and lunch recommendations in town. The wine menu here has detailed suggestions regarding food pairings and the recipes are available on their website. We liked The Posse- winery reserve.

The sculptures garden is worth a walk. the view of Santa Rosa is quite nice. We were blown away by the first two wines - SB and Chard. Usually prefer reds this time of year but the whites were that good that they stole the show. The tasting fee is on par with all others and waived if you purchase... More
