Paradise, plain and simple. Once you’ve seen the magnificent views and felt its majestic physical presence, it is easy to see how this important Monterey brand got its name. Rich Smith is one of the godfathers of modern Monterey County viticulture and has done as much or more for the region than just about anyone. A family affair, Paraiso melds great winemaking and business with deep community ties and forward-thinking leadership. Recently it helped pioneer the Wine Artisans of the Santa Lucia Highlands, an organization that highlights this special appellation that Paraiso calls home.
