Our main building was once the original apple stand where local legend Marilyn Thomas first started baking her pies which transformed the area into Apple Hill. ParaVi Vineyards has a state-of-the-art tasting room where you can sample each of our wines while you view a museum-quality collection of wine tools and openers.

  • Primus the Blend 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a deep indigo in the glass, with brighter garnet along the edges. The nose is a lovely combination of smoke, ripe black fruit, rosemary and clove. The flavor is quite nice, with some sweet fruit notes of strawberry and plum up front that transition nicely to some earthy notes of toasted oak and blackberry midpalate. The tannins ar... Read More

  • Primus Red Blend 2009

    Snoothrank:

    For my money if you can find a blend containing a drop or two of Syrah and Carmenere with Cab. Sauv. and/or Merlot for less than $20. BUY IT. This was a very good bottle of vino. Thank you, Chile. If only I could afford to visit. 3/5/15...I believe winter will end in two days, but what do I really know about wine or weather? Read More

    Wine review by MrRiesling


  • We are looking for great values, and you can find them from just about every region on earth except for a small handful of regions that seem to only do well with wines that start at what no one I know is calling a value price. On the flip side, there are many wine producing regions around the globe that seem almost incapable of cracking through ... Read More

  • Primus the Blend 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is tailor-made to be served with a well-cooked steak. It is a dark, near opaque wine with strong berry, spice, herbal, burned wood, and leather nose hints. The taste and mouth-feel are both dry and smooth. This is a strong tasting wine, with elegant and complex undertones. It has a medium finish, and I would rate this as an excelle... Read More
