Premiere Napa Valley Wines
Paradigm Winery is owned and operated by Marilyn and Ren Harris. Marilyn was born and raised in Napa Valley and Ren is from San Francisco. They met in high school in 1958. After college Marilyn taught fourth grade and Ren was in construction when they were married in 1965. They sold their home in San Francisco in 1967 using the proceeds to purchase a prune orchard in the Napa Valley.
At the time there were only 11 wineries and 3 co-ops in the valley. They converted the prune orchard into a vineyard, sold that piece of land, and purchased the 55-acre vineyard on the westside of Napa Valley in the Oakville AVA. Ren and Marilyn initially sold their grapes to local wineries until they built Paradigm Winery in 1991 and since then they have produced their wines exclusively from their own grapes. Heidi Barrett has been the Paradigm winemaker from the beginning and the vineyard is certified organic and farmed by a full-time team with minimal impact on the planet. Paradigm has been a member of One Percent for the Planet since the organization started in 2002.
The focus at Paradigm is Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel and Petit Verdot. The wines are consistent, balanced and age worthy.
Tastings are by appointment. Please call 707-944-1683 to make an appointment.
