About
Paradisos del Sol is an estate winery located outside of Zillah in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA and the Yakima Valley AVA. We have a Zero-Pesticide Organic Vineyard. Nothing but blood, sweat, and tears. We have 20 acres and grow many other things other than wine grapes. Paul Vandenberg is the winegrower (winemaker) and also the gardener and farmer. Our wine tasting consists of ten wines with accompanying small morsels of food to go with: Sip Sip Bite Sip!

The minute we pulled into the parking lot we had a bad feeling about the place. There was junk on the lawn, flower beds were overgrown, and the entry was like walking into a home. Upon entry there was produce on the counter, lots of clutter, and the wine maker was preparing a test tube tasting for a group. He made some small talk about being right with us, but after a quick look around we knew this wasn’t for us so we left. We’ve been to plenty of wineries, big and small, but none that were this dirty and off putting.

Owner/winemaker has a routine of "Sip, Sip, taste, and Sip (finish the wine)". He serves a little plate with tiny - tiny tidbits that he believes - no he "knows" compliment his wines. He has a monologue of how his wine and his tastes go together. He seems more content to hear himself talk than to engage in conversation about his wine. When we arrived there was a sign "Organic Farm" and whether that belief seemed to lend to an overall "run-down" and ill kept place. Almost did not go in tasting room because of goose poop on the walk way and flower beds overgrown with weeds. Does not indicate the highest quality wine. Would not recommend to others expecting a wine tasting with quality wines.

We stopped off here on a whim and could spell bacon as we headed toward the tasting room, he said he makes BLTs, and I can tell you I wanted one but they were not quite ready. He did pair all 8-9 wines with tiny bits of food. (very tiny, but enough to understand the compliment) Very knowledgable, no pesticides, and we learned a lot, enjoyed the rose and several others. I respect the commitment to growing and selling to the consumer. Paul has his tasting room in his home, he is friendly and chatty, this was an experience we really enjoyed!

This is the most unassuming operation in the county. Cluttered yard full of animals and Paul, who has a schtick that is more funny if you are inebriated. I kinda was but it was nevertheless painful to cue in laughter. Micro-micro pours coupled with micro micro food dots did not allow the added inebriation I needed. The wine was so-so but we bought some anyway because Paul was on a streak of selling, otherwise your are straddled with a $10 tasting fee. You can find much better but you cannot find more unique.

The place is not inviting - this is someone's very lived in home. Paul is a wine master, treating the land beautifully and making a lovely product. Among the hand lettered signs to leave your wineglasses in the car, the chicken bombs on the sidewalk, and the cat asleep in the box by the door, you will find finely crafted wines. Don't miss out.

First time to this winery with a big group of friends. It was open past 4:30 which was the closing time of most of the other winery's in that area. The outside of the tasting room needs cleaned up - like bad! The owner was unique, talkative and informative. His blue cheese dip recipe is very good. I enjoyed the tasting experience itself but the interior also left much to be desired. I appreciate that they donate to the Yakima Humane Society a portion of their proceeds. Baby Barn Owl Red was my favorite.

Place is a dump, the couple are obviously hoarding and there was junk everywhere. The women does a trick with a syringe and that is a forewarning of the very small pour they give you for a tasting!!! They give a small piece of various foods with each tasting which was good but ruined by the micro size and the fact the plates are separated by pieces of plumbers pipe.

Not in a anyway cute just hillbilly cheap.

Wines were actually quite good but spoiled by the tasting room which is a dump, filthy and full of garbage.

Do yourself a favor and with all the nice wineries in the area give this dump a miss!!!!

Unique place but that was part of the appeal. As soon as we arrived the kids were greeted with corn to feed to the chickens. They were then entertained by the yard/animals so that we could enjoy the tasting - and enjoy we did! Very cool pairing approach helps demonstrate the effect that proper pairing has on wine. And by and large, the wines were very tasty!! If you are planning to be in the area, check out the passport program they have as you pay $10 and receive discounts/benefits at participating wineries in the area. We bought four bottles of wine here and the $10 passport paid for itself and then some.

What a fun gem! Paradisos is home-like, and the owners make you feel very at home. They have a relaxed perspective on wine-tasting: sip, sip, bite, sip. You take a sip of the wine, another sip, take a bite of what is on the plate, and take another sip. This allows you to explore the wine in multiple ways, which I appreciated because wine does change depending on what you're eating. The bites are very small so even if you're full from lunch, you'd be able to eat them.

If you go with children, they would love observing the sheep, meeting with Ms. Piggie, and admiring the fun mini-turkey-looking bird.

Bikers, JFYI, if you get a goathead (flat!), Paradisos has tools. They are more than happy to help and hook you up with tools you may need to get back on the road.

I absolutely loved their wine, the relaxed experience, and the owners' company. We'll for sure return in the future and will be looking out for their wines in stores!
