This actually is Paradise…. Our guests were so amazed at how beautiful everything was. We were all able to enjoy the scenery of the day, the sunset, and the glory of the lights at night. It doesn’t get much better than this! Thank you Paradise Ridge for a beautiful wedding.
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 place has the feel of an insider’s secret…it’s well worth the effort to find.

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.

Everything was flawlessly executed and surpassed our expectations… The wine was outstanding; the venue was beautiful and intimate, both inside and outside; and the ambiance lent itself to the best wedding, reception, dinner, and party in the history of mankind.
Art & Nature
Marijke’s Grove is currently open daily from 10 to 4.
In 1960 Walter Byck proposed to his girlfriend Marijke Hoenselaars in a sculpture grove in the Netherlands. This was the beginning of a love affair between Marijke, Walter, and art.
After moving to Sonoma County and opening Paradise Ridge Winery, Walter focused his attention on finding a place on the estate for an outdoor sculpture garden. He found the perfect location in a four-acre grove of wooden glens with ancient gnarled oaks and open meadows. These “galleries” were connected by simple footpaths. The sculptures were placed among mossy rocks and grassy clearings. After working with a number of curators, Walter began to oversee the yearly art exhibits himself. In 2006 after Marijke’s sudden passing, Walter dedicated the grove to her and it is now known as Marijke’s Grove.
Instead of permanent pieces, Marijke’s Grove supports the arts with a biennial changing exhibit. In 2012 the Byck Family began working with the Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation. Their combined efforts bring cutting edge free public art to the foothills of Sonoma County.
The gates to the estate are open to the public from 10- 4:00 daily, allowing visitors a chance to experience the art & nature of Paradise.
