One of the Top 10 Cellar Doors (Tasting Rooms) in California
Chosen as “The Best Wine Country Picnics – Best View
At the intimate Paradise Ridge tasting room in Kenwood, tasting room manager Annette McDonnell, a former chef, likes to guide visitors through a 75-minute sensory wine and food exercise with the goal of helping them relax about pairing
As lizards scamper about and red tailed hawks fly above, visitors can spend as little as 10 minutes or as much time as they like.
Paradise Ridge is a haven where locals and visitors come to savor the wonderful wines, bring their friends, and take in breathtaking views of the Russian River Valley vineyards and far beyond.
This place has the feel of an insider’s secret…it’s well worth the effort to find.
A visit to Paradise Ridge Winery in the daytime is lovely. On summer nights with the view and the sunset, it’s a special treat
This Sliver of Sonoma Paradise delivers a dose of art, history, nature and fine wines in one stop
Visitors are encouraged to wander down from the tasting room and then meander in no particular order among natural paths lined only in low fieldstones smothered with moss.
The view from the terrace is like a painting, layered with greens and golds, gradually blending into deeper earth tones and finally fading to hazy purple hues at the horizon.
The Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation and Paradise Ridge Winery welcome you to Marijke’s Grove, this unique outdoor gallery featuring Conversations in Sculpture, an exhibition of sculpture designed to encourage visual dialogue.
As conversation is an exchange of ideas, formulated thoughts or opinions. Each of the artists has been asked a question. Each of their works then describes an answer in three dimensions.
The works of eleven artists have been installed as their works address diverse topics such as inner and outer space, nature versus man, visual communication, conflict, geometry, ambiguity . . . The sculptures have been created in the studio, specific to the site, or fabricated especially for this exhibit.
So, while walking throughout the grounds, we are encouraged to interact with the sculptures, the environment and one another. This is an opportunity to pursue an exchange: the receipt and acceptance of insight and interaction.
The exhibit continues through Spring 2016.
