2015 Merlot, Foppiano Vineyard, Russian River Valley
FOPPIANO Vineyard – only a distant cousin of the Foppiano winery in Healdsburg.
This vineyard is perhaps the most northern vineyard in the Russian River Valley and sits on an ancient flood plain where the river meanders south through the northern hills of Healdsburg.
Planted 40 plus years ago on St George rootstock, with an unknown clone, these vines are knarled and knotted. Sitting in a deep loamy sand soil, perhaps 150 feet from the river, these roots are deep and happy. This is a low lying spot and collects the nights cool air, and can be several degrees cooler here than just a few miles away.
The vines are cordon pruned.

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 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.
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
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so very perfect and beautiful. It greatly exceeded our expectations!
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.
