About the Winery
Nestled on a ridge overlooking the Russian River Valley, Paradise Ridge Winery is a family wine estate. The fertile rocky soil and sunny hillside exposure of the Paradise vineyards help create the wines that proudly carry the Paradise Ridge label. The vineyards adjoin the lands of the historic Fountaingrove Winery that at the turn of the century won international acclaim for its wines.

Over the last ten years, Paradise Ridge Winemaker Dan Barwick (previously from Ferrari-Carano) has handcrafted exquisite Paradise Ridge wines and produced some of the most food friendly wines in California. Diligently he oversees every step of the winemaking process from the vineyard to the bottle.

Northeast Wine Brokers is proud to be the exclusive agent for the following Paradise Ridge wines in Connecticut:

2011 Sauvignon Blanc, Grandview Vineyard, Russian River Valley
This wine was made to express the varietal characteristics of the fruit on the vine. Hand picked & cluster selected by the winemaker, only the best grapes passed the test for this exceptional wine. Delicately made, yet packed with flavor, fresh fig & grapefruit come to mind. The refreshing acidity and a sleek, lean body, lead to a long lasting tropical fruit finish. The perfect wine for any occasion!

Only 680 cases made.

2010 Chardonnay, Sapphire Hill Vineyard, Russian River Valley
Many steps taken to make a wine with as much complexity as possible. The result of which has given us a Chardonnay wine with that 'classical barrel fermented' character, a bright level of acidity, along with perhaps some more of a European minerality and sophistication.
Aged in French Oak, 20% new, 50% of the wine went through Malolactic Fermentation.

This wine was created with food in mind and makes an excellent food companion.

Only 400 cases produced.

2009 Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
The grapes for this wine were harvested from two distinct and exceptional vineyards located in the Russian River Valley. Three unique grape clones combined with three separate harvests added a nice level of depth and complexity.

This wine was barrel aged for 10 months in 100% French oak selected from six different coopers. The barrels were predominantly medium toast and 45% were new. The wine was bottled unfiltered in July of 2010.

This wine is seductively silky and rich with enormous complexity and variety of character. Restrained in style, this Pinot Noir is very food friendly.

Only 240 cases made!

2007"Elevation" Cabernet Sauvignon, Rockpile
A lot of extra work went into achieving great depth and complexity. Aged in French Oak, 40% new. Stylistically restrained and reserved, there is a fruit profile that is immensely powerful, yet delicate at the same time. The sweet fruit has a broad spectrum of aromatics and flavors and is backed by some of the most smooth, soft and silky tannins I've encountered from this vineyard, yet these tannins are constantly present and persistent, which has all resulted in this quite amazing wine, with the balance, depth and long finish we have come to expect from the 'Rockpile Vineyard'. - Dan Barwick, Winemaker

1050 cases produced.
