Our Tasting Room, located in the beautiful Edna Valley, is the result of almost 45 years of work by a single family, starting when Catharine and Jack Niven first planted grapes here in 1973, founding Paragon Vineyards. Today, the business is operated by second and third generation family members and has grown to include over 30 different wines under five separate labels. All these wines are poured at our tasting room located in the historic Independence Schoolhouse, built in 1909. The current building includes some of the original windows, siding and floorboards, preserving history while adding to a uniquely attractive setting for the tasting room and extensive gift shop. Surrounding the tasting room are expansive picnic areas with stunning views of the SIP-Certified Estate Paragon Vineyard. Two full-size Bocce courts are available for your use, or just sit and enjoy the views of the vines across the valley to the mountains.

The tasting room is in an old schoolhouse. The property is large and the tasting room is nice. They have lots of fun wine accessories and gourmet boxed foods. This would be a perfect place to have picnic and a nice bottle of wine. The tasting was 5 wines for $12 and the price is waived if you purchase a... More

As noted by others, the tasting room is off the beaten path, more in the flat lands, and was previously a one room school house. It is obviously smaller than many larger, architectural imposing wineries, but is also a nice change of pace them. Bring a lunch, buy some wine and enjoy a nice lunch in the country on their...

I love this winery! It's located on a hill in an old schoolhouse built in 1909. The atmosphere is lively and the wine is ok. Allison was our server and she was so adorable- knowledgable about the wine and the history of the winery and lots of fun. We had a great time! The vintage port and dark chocolate pairing... More

Little ways out, but more than worth the drive. They pour four different labels here. Very nice selection and some delicious wines. My wife does not like red and they were happy to do a flight of all whites for her. Friendly staff and nice setting. Beautiful patio area to sit in as well.

We loved their wines and the tasting room was like being in an old little house from the country. Really cute spot and Ashley was amazing in the tasting room. Wines were delicious and it was just a pleasant experience. I loved their grounds, very unique! You can play Bocce outside, just hang out and they have one of those... More

The wine tasting was done very well and they are very easy to order with, we got a mixed selection and that was no problem. Enjoy a glass out on the patio area. The sparkling rose brut is the best, treat yourself.

A beautiful little winery with such charm and great wines! We randomly chose it to take friends from England and had a wonderful experience. The staff were super friendly and we enjoyed a bottle of their wine outside in their terrace area with our picnic. Can't wait to go again and highly recommend it.

This winery not only sits in a most beautiful location, but the facilities and grounds are wonderful to. Everyone at the winery went out of their way to make sure we were having an excellent experience-and we were. Who wouldn't love drinking wine in incredible surroundings playing Boule to your hearts content? I recommend this winery surrounded with vineyards, farms... More

Great location in an old school house surrounded by beautiful gardens. White wines ok, but they have a grea Pinot. Nice little gift shop in tasting room. They were very busy when we were there.

Love True Myth, both the white and red, and that was the reason why I added Baileyana to my agenda. Boy oh boy, was I ever disappointed in the rest of their line up.
