Au Paradis

Oakville Au Paradis Vineyard
Oakville, Napa Valley

Located in the heart of the Oakville AVA’s famed “red dirt” in Napa Valley, Au Paradis is situated exactly where its name translates, “In Heaven.” Planted in the foothills on the eastside of the valley on a raised gently sloping plateau, the Bordeaux varietals develop into a classic style with silky tannins and deep red fruit. Between 500 and 600 feet, 14.5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc look down upon the valley and across to the Mayacamas. The slope and hillside location provide ideal sun exposure during the day and help develop the lush, intense fruit one would expect from such a magnificent property..
