I found out about this place last minute, what a find. Absolutely stunning views of the valley and mountains. This locale is way, way up in the hills. But not far from vintners inn in Santa Rosa. Less than 20 mins. We booked the wine and cheese tasting and enjoyed sampling 4 wines and nibbles of cheese on the terrace... More

My now-husband and I held our recent wedding at Paradise Ridge. The views at the winery are unbeatable and overlook the Sonoma Valley. We visited on the Tuesday before our wedding to walk through the final details with Martha, their event coordinator, and also had a wine tasting. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful during all of the wedding... More

Friendly staff, beautiful location, great art, music, and some of the best wine in the world! It doesn't Get any better than that. You can see why they have 60 weddings a year here. Just a great place! We are red wine people, but the whites at the tasting we're amazing also. The Pinot noir was our favorite, medium bodied,... More

Enjoyed a Sept evening on their spacious patio. Music was old-school but the views were gorgeous, wine was very good & the goat cheese w/ fig & basil pizza was awesome. Very relaxing - amazing sculptures throughout the grounds & very easy to find.

One of the best summer events at a winery. Every Wednesday from May thru October the winery has wine tastings, live music and local food caterer available to sit, enjoy the view, catch up with friends and watch the sunset.

This winery was recommended to us from a post in the vacation rental we are staying at and it was really a nice surprise. They have a nice wine selection and some incredible art on the property too. Once you get to the top of the driveway you have a spectacular view from the patio. I would definitely recommend it... More

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
