We had a wonderful wine tasting at Paradise Ridge. The hostess was knowledgeable and very energetic. She made us feel very welcome. The view from their terrace is exceptional.

I recently attend a dinner here as part of a conference. The grounds of this place were beautiful. The house overlooked the vineyards and was a great place to catch a sunset.

We had dinner here on a business event recently and it was lovely. The view was amazing and the food was good. It was so nice to sit on the deck and look over the vineyards. My only tip is not to wear spiked heals. The slats in the desk are far apart and the women were getting their heels... More

This was the second winery as part of my work conference - and was another winner. They have an authentic wood fire pizza oven outside that was serving fresh pizza that tasted amazing, and they had some games on the side to keep us occupied. The buffet dinner was average at best, but the servers were quite friendly.

This is a lovely location and great wine tasting experience. In addition, they offered a lovely cheese and crackers plate. We sat on the deck, overlooking the vineyard and had a perfect lunch.

We stopped for a wine tasting. The wine was ok, but the view was fabulous. We weren't impressed with the white wines, but the rockpile wines were good. The young ladies who work there are very kind.
