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

What a lovely winery! Staff was great and views from the tasting patio were amazing! After our tastings, we even wandered around the grounds to check out all the amazing art. Especially the huge LOVE sign. Amazing winery! Highly recommend!

This was our first time going to Paradise Ridge's sunset event. Had a houseguest from Canada, so wanted to take her. We live here but never got around to going. It was very nice, there was a taco truck to get dinner from, although, many brought their own food. We are going again, tomorrow and will be bringing some of... More

This was just up to the top of the hill from the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country hotel in Santa Rosa. We arrived early and did not do a tasting. But we were able to walk around the property and check out the modern art work. The view out over Santa Rosa is pretty spectacular, worth a look.

It's a beautiful spot close to town. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. We stop into Paradise Ridge on most trips to Santa Rosa and recommend you check them out. The artwork is not to be missed. This place would be great for a sunset but they are not open in the summer past 5 pm so you do not... More
