“Wine Tasting with a View!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

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!

“Sunset in Santa Rosa”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

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 our own snacks. Lovely location, nice music, wine was delicious and enjoyed the whole experience. Would recommend this to everyone, especially the locals who often miss these events.

“A Beautiful Scape”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

I found out about Paradise Ridge's Wines and Sunsets Wednesdays through Eventbrite....and so happy we decided to experience such a beautiful and tasty event. Paradise Ridge Winery has a fabulous Sunset setting. We arrived with our picnic, but you can purchase food from local vendor trucks, bought a bottle of one of the wines Paradise Ridge offered (real glasses are provided) and sat down at one of their outdoor tables overlooking the valley. (There are also indoor tables if you get too cold or hot.) A band was playing, but you could sit on the otherside of the winery and not hear it if that's what you'd prefer, as we did. We took in the scenery, ate, drank, conversed and watched the gorgeous sunset paint the sky. Go.

“Great views from up here”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

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.
