Paradis

Peter and Donna Paradis purchased their 100 acre farm in 1989. It is nestled in the scenic Abiqua Valley near Silverton, Oregon. Wine grapes were a new venture to the East Valley at that time. Upon planting their first block of Pinot Gris in 1990, they became one of the first wine grape growers in this area. Today with 36 acres planted in 3 different varieties, they are joined by a multitude of growers and wineries hailing from the East part of the Willamette Valley.  Chad Vargas and Pierre Paradis, son of Peter and Donna, manage the vineyard. As a multigenerational business, we are proud to be part of this expanding East Willamette Valley wine growing region.
