Chosen as “The Best Wine Country Picnics – Best View
Thank you all for all your hard work in putting together what forever in our hearts will be the best day of our lives.
Our expression from the vineyard to the bottle
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.
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.
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.
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.
You are most gracious, I am tempted to say that Paradise Ridge Winery’s customer service is as phenomenal as its wine, but I can’t drink your wonderful customer service. You’ve won a lover of fine wines future business. Thank you again

Art & Nature
Marijke’s Grove is currently open Saturday’s & Sunday from 11 to 4 through October 28th.
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 easily 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 all permanent pieces,Marijke’s Grove supports the arts with an biennial changing exhibit. In 2012 the Byck Family began working together 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 11- 4:00 on Saturdays and Sundays, allowing visitors a chance to experience the art & nature of Paradise.
