2014 Blanc de Blanc Sparkling, Russian River Valley
This Sparkling wine is our 4th offering made with fruit from the acclaimed ‘Bazzano’ vineyard in the Russian River Valley.
Dry farming these vines for the past 24 years has pushed their root systems deep down into the well-drained alluvial soil looking for moisture, where the roots also feed on hidden trace elements that somehow magically transform themselves into something rather special in the finished wine. I believe that this, in conjunction with a long ‘hang-time’ is why we experience some extraordinary qualities from this fruit. This wine in particular shows a really seductive and vibrant lemon character on both the nose and palate, something that I have never experienced before; all really quite delicious.
Perfect wine for making every day a celebration!
Pairs perfectly with Chef Bruce Riezenman of Park Avenue Catering’s Shrimp Apple Fritters…yum!
Our expression from the vineyard to the bottle
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
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.
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.
Our June wedding was simply a dream come true. We will forever be grateful for your kind hospitality. Paradise Ridge will be a special destination for us forever.
This place has the feel of an insider’s secret…it’s well worth the effort to find.
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
The wines are outstanding
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so very perfect and beautiful. It greatly exceeded our expectations!
