Located in the town of Clifton, VA and bordering the Bull Run River, Paradise Springs is the closest winery to Washington DC and the first in Fairfax County. The property was originally part of a land grant from Lord Fairfax in 1716 to the Kincheloe family and has been passed down through generations since. The property features a 1700’s log cabin, which was renovated in 1955 by a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright. Wine tastings, tours, and much more can be found at this intimate, family run, destination winery.

Paradise Springs produces approximately 12,000 cases of wine annually with a wide variety of white, red, rosé, sparkling, and dessert wines.
