I really enjoy going to Paradise Hills. It is great to go there with some friends and relax, the atmosphere is comfortable indoors and out. The wine is complex and well crafted. I enjoy any of their wines, especially to take a bottle and drink it outside with a picnic but my favorite wine is President's Choice. This complex red wine will keep you opening the bottle to drink more and likely get another once you're through.

A must visit when wine tasting in CT. Great atmosphere, beautiful decor, pleasant staff. Great to just relax with friends indoors or outdoors, off the beaten path. A great hidden gem in a quiet Ct neighborhood.

Love the wine, it's better than the other Wallingford winery. The view isn't as grand, but the people more than make up for it. Brenda, Rich, Al, Margaret and all the staff make you feel like you belong there. It's a hidden gem!!!

We have come here for a few events, and while Gouveia Winery may have the views, this place has the Quality.

The wine maker here has a masters degree for this field and it shows. She is able to get very complex flavors out of CT grapes.

It was a little tricky to find the first time, but very worth it.

I visited this vineyard with a friend and it we both loved it. The driveway to the tasting room brings you through beautiful fields and rolling hills, and the room itself looks like it came straight out of Napa valley. Our server at the wine bar was very knowledgeable about their wines, and the pour size was VERY generous. They only had four wines available for tasting, but all the wines were unique and very good. You can bring your own food and snacks and sit at one of their bistro tables, either in the tasting room or out on the patio.

We also visited nearby Gouveia Vineyards the same day, and we both agreed Paradise Hills was much better overall. While Gouveia had a more scenic property and larger wine selection, the atmosphere was very stuffy, and the wines were mediocre. Paradise Hills was great!
