Paradise Springs Winery in Clifton, Virginia was founded in 2007. After the 2013 harvest, CEO and Founder Kirk Wiles started exploring how Paradise Springs Winery could continue its unexpected quick growth in the wine world. Having grown from 1,300 cases to over 12,000 cases a year in 2013, the demand for Paradise Springs wine was outpacing the quality fruit available in Virginia.
During a trip to California in February of 2014, Wiles found himself in Santa Barbara wine country exploring the region with a few lifelong friends. While falling in love with the Pinot Noirs of the region, it was on this trip the answer came to him. Paradise Springs was to start a second winery on the west coast.
It was the perfect way to expand the brand without jeopardizing the high standards of quality he had set upon the winery. Paradise Springs would be the first "bi-coastal" winery brand in the United States, standing for the highest quality of wine while achieving varietal correctness in a region.
