About Paradise Ridge Winery

"The Most Beautiful View in Sonoma County"

Paradise Ridge Winery is an elegant fine wine estate nestled high on a hill in the heart of Sonoma County Wine Country. Located just minutes from downtown Santa Rosa and Highway 101, our facility combines the comforts of an event site with the elegance of a family owned and operated wine estate. Magnificently situated on 156-acres overlooking estate vineyards and the Russian River Valley, Paradise Ridge offers a private and unique setting with “The most beautiful view in Sonoma County.”

Paradise Ridge Winery was created with elegant social functions in mind. Our facility has versatile space upstairs, downstairs, inside and outside, which together and/or separately can accommodate up to 250 persons.  It is the perfect compliment to the beautiful nature that surrounds us. Expansive mahogany decks encircle the main room that looks over a terrace graced with fountains. We have taken the time to add personal touches, creating the perfect setting for special events.To get to the winery you drive up a road draped in trees and surrounded by vineyards. Occasionally deer are in the meadows to greet you. The view from the winery is incredible, overlooking our estate vineyards and extending miles in all directions.Paradise Ridge has carefully selected several excellent and exclusive caterers for you to choose from, for your special event at Paradise.

Everything about Paradise Ridge was perfect! The view overlooking the vineyard and the city was absolutely breathtaking. Our guests cannot stop talking about how beautiful it was. We also had the most gorgeous sunset during our cocktail hour that everyone really enjoyed! This was a destination wedding, and Martha helped tremendously with her list of recommended vendors and other advice throughout our planning process. Also, the bartenders and staff were super friendly and accommodating. We highly recommend Paradise Ridge as a wedding venue--it'll be the best decision you make!

Paradise Ridge is a special place, sitting on a ridge above vineyards with spectacular sunsets. The multiple patios and balcony add plenty of space for your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, dancing and places for your guests to check out the beautiful views. This is really a destination wedding even if you are from Northern California. We had just 100 guests and wedding party, and it was perfect. Any larger and your dinner reception will be spilling out onto the patios. One of the distinctions of having your wedding at Paradise Ridge is that you are the only event going on. You are not sharing the facility with other events or hotel guests, which is often the case at other venues. Our daughter's wedding was in early/mid October, and it was perfect. Paradise Ridge is famous for the Burning Man "Love" sculpture sitting among the vines. It delighted our wedding guests, was a great photo opportunity for the wedding party, and pleasantly surprised everyone when after the sun set it lit up. You really can't beat Paradise Ridge when it comes to being a unique, wonderful photo-op location for your wedding or event in the wine country.

Martha, the event manager, was great to work with. She is easy to reach and returns calls and emails promptly. She and our Month-of Wedding Coordinator, CC Events of Santa Rosa, worked very well together.

Something you might not have thought of; but because Paradise Ridge has a great catering kitchen, you save a bundle of money. Other venues require your caterer to rent kitchen equipment, which you pay for. Caterers love the kitchen at Paradise.

I highly recommend you visit, check out the view, taste the wine, meet Martha, and consider having your wedding or event at Paradise Ridge Winery.

Paradise Ridge was absolutely stunning and we are so glad we chose it for our wedding venue! We toured a lot of venues before selecting Paradise Ridge. Although it was a bit more costly than we had originally budgeted for our venue, it was absolutely worth the value. The pros:
1) The reception/dancing can go into the night. Most Napa/Sonoma venues have a hard 10pm music cut-off time due to city noise ordinances. PRW allowed our reception to go until 1am, so we didn't feel the need to provide an after party. You pay overtime beyond midnight, but it's definitely worth it.
2) The scenery. Your photos will be amazing. The LOVE sign lit up at night is stunning. You also save on decor because the venue speaks for itself!
3) One location for everything. You can have your first look and photos in the vineyards, a beautiful outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour on the veranda, and indoor reception in the ballroom. They even have an indoor space downstairs as a backup for the ceremony in case it rains on your big day (wedding tents are expensive!).
4) Martha is so fun to work with. We are members now and love going back!

The cons:
1) Cost. We saved a bit by having a Friday wedding. But the exclusive vendors (although lovely) are kinda pricey. Definitely price out the exclusive caterers before booking if you're on a budget.
2) Some guests sit outside on the veranda for dinner if you have a large wedding. We had 144 guests, so 2 tables of guests were outside for dinner. It was beautiful, but on a May evening it was pretty chilly even with the heaters. In the summer this wouldn't be a problem at all.
3) Some firm rules/restrictions - but you'll find this with any winery venue. They are a winery by day so you can't have your rehearsal any old time...you have to work around their schedule and other weddings/events. Also, no throwing of anything or any fresh flower petals. We were allowed to have our puppy in the wedding though :)
