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.

Chosen as “The Best Wine Country Picnics – Best View
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.
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.
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.
Russian River Valley Estate – Destroyed by the 2017 Tubbs Fire
The Byck family and Paradise Ridge team is heartbroken by the loss of our winery in the Tubbs Fire, which has devastated our corner of Sonoma County. The winery may be broken but our estate vineyards survived, which is the foundation of our wine. Fortunately the majority of our bottled wines are stored safely off property.
Our thoughts are with the many who have lost so much and we count our blessings that our family and team are safe.
Thank you to each and every one who has reached out to visit us, it means everything to have your support. We are resilient and we will rebuild.
Much love to our community.
