Paradigm Winery produces hand-crafted wines from the Harris Family Vineyards in the heart of the Oakville appellation in Napa Valley.
Ren and Marilyn Harris own Paradigm Winery. Two winegrowers with extraordinarily deep roots in Napa Valley. Marilyn’s grandparents immigrated from Italy to Napa Valley in 1890. While Ren’s family came to California in 1769. Marilyn and Ren moved to Napa Valley in the 1960’s and settled into their home just east of where Paradigm sits today. Through a career in vineyard real estate, Ren learned much about the diverse growing regions in Napa Valley. In 1976, when they decided to purchase vineyards of their own. Oakville was the clear choice. Paradigm Winery was founded several years later and began producing wine with the 1991 vintage.
Ren and Marilyn hired a young and talented winemaker, Heidi Barrett. Heidi has been with Paradigm since the beginning. They all share a passion for making great wine. With an incredibly loyal team, Paradigm Winery maintains a hands-on approach to all winemaking and vineyard operations. Every bottle you uncork was grown, crushed, fermented, barrel aged, bottled and stored on site. Ren and Marilyn have been tireless advocates for the Oakville appellation, eco-friendly farming, and environmental stewardship. They recently celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary.
