Enjoyed the personal and informative tour and wine tasting by the owner and his brother of their small winery and wines. We bought four bottles of their cabs that we enjoyed. Highly recommend visiting. Need an appointment.

Every wine we tasted were fantastic. We don’t usually like rose wines or merlot but these were great. The zinfandel, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet were as good as Hall vineyards at half the price. By appointment only. Worth the stop.

We joined! Mary Ann gave us a great tour of the winery with several tastes of their wonderful reds. We even sat & talked all about the winery with the owner, Ren, & listened to fun stories. Great time!

If you truly want the smaller, off the beaten path tasting room that makes you feel like you are part of the family, this is it. The tasting room cannot be called anything other than intimate. Wines are fantastic and so reasonable. Make your appointment...More

The winery is no frills, but the wine is fantastic and reasonably priced. The woman who gave our tour was very knowledgeable and friendly.

There is nothing fancy about the tasting room at Paradigm. The vineyards are about 5 steps out the door. It is a rather plain small room with only one place to sit down. But the wines are very very good. And the host, the winemaker's...More
