2014 The Convict, Branham Vineyard, Rockpile
The Convict is named for the labor used by the sheriff, Tennessee Carter Bishop, in the 1870’s to carve a 15 mile road to his property in the rugged mountainous terrain of Rockpile. The depth & complexity of this wine come from our four old vine zinfandel clones planted on steep rocky terraces overlooking Lake Sonoma. Sitting at 1500 feet above sea level, the undulating earth & desolate locale of these vineyards create intense characteristics expressive of its rich history.
Our fourth wine made from this jewel of a vineyard, and showing some of that muscle we expect from this region along with layers of bright fruit, a keen acidity and broad mouthfeel.

Thank you for providing an amazing place for us to have our wedding. We had an incredible time and the wines were delicious. Thanks for making the planning so easy, everything was just perfect.
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.
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 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.

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.
A case of Paradise Ridge wine is like winning the million dollar jackpot lottery
