Amazing views

It was a wonderful and unexpected visit. The views are amazing and the ambience very low key. Definitely plan on coming back to have a Wednesday evening dinner.

My daughters and I went wine tasting in Sonoma. My daughter took us here because of the beautiful views. We sat and enjoyed a glass of wine on the terrace looking at the breathtaking view. A well spent afternoon.

I wanted to try a place in Santa Rosa I had never heard of before and it seemed Paradise Ridge was not only close but picturesque and had great wines! I enjoyed their Sauvignon Blanc (fresh, fruity, crisp) and Zinfandel (earthy red), the most. The grounds were beautiful and had funky statues everywhere. I was obsessed with their fireplaces especially... More

Beautiful winery with sculpture garden and scenic views with even better wines. Tasting room was gorgeous and Carol was full of information. Loved the Pinot and the Cabernet was deep and smooth. I would drink both and I am not a red guy. A must stop!!

We opted to indulge in the wine and cheese pairing out on the upper terrace to be able to enjoy the afternoon. What a lovely setting! The vineyard is beautiful, the cheese pairing delicious and the service attentive and knowledgeable. We had such a nice couple of hours sipping our wine and at no time felt rushed.

Sean was our pouring host. It was fun and educational to discuss the wine culture, the history of the winery and how he came to be there. The history of the winery and how it was saved is impressive. Don't miss the sculpture which changes yearly and is installed by the Voigt family foundation. We try to visit here at... More

The grounds are beautiful - just like the name, Paradise Ridge is paradise! Carol Chapman took great care of us at the tasting bar - what a great story teller she is and full of amazing information about the wines, winery and local areas!!

Recent transplants from the northwest . Although we've toured Napa and Sonoma before , we've been intensively touring Sonoma for the last year. Napa is so over the top that it can be overwhelming . Sonoma is what Napa USED to be . Focused on wine certainly , but also a broader range of agriculture and ranching. Love the farmer's... More
