Paradise Springs Winery is tucked at the end of a country road in charming Clifton, Virginia. The popular vineyard can make two unique claims. It is the oldest winery in Fairfax County, Virginia, and the closest winery to Washington DC. Paradise Springs Winery offers a scenic location, welcoming spaces, and tasty wines that make it a fun gathering spot and day trip destination.
The winery tasting room occupies a lovely red barn that was originally located in downtown Fairfax. The barn was carefully disassembled in 1956 and rebuilt in its current location. History is also behind the Paradise Springs Winery name. Clifton was once known for its healing spring waters, which were bottled under the name Paradise Springs in 1910.
The winery serves as the gateway to Virginia Wine Country. The property of the winery features an 1800’s log cabin, which was renovated in 1955 by a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright. The 2,000 square foot tasting room is open all year long. Tastings, tours, wine dinners, and much more can be found at this intimate, family-run destination winery.
Paradise Springs Winery is honored to have been awarded the coveted Governor’s Cup on September 29, 2010 for their 2009 Chardonnay. The award signifies this wine as the BEST white wine made in the state of Virginia.
