Baileyana, Tangent & True Myth Tasting Room
Open daily 10am - 5pm
Reservations required for groups of eight or more.
Our Tasting Room, located in the beautiful Edna Valley, is the result of over 40 years of work by a single family, starting when Catharine and Jack Niven first planted grapes here in 1973, founding Paragon Vineyards. Today, the business is operated by second and third generation family members and has grown to include over 30 different wines under five separate labels.
All these wines are sold at our tasting room located in the historic Independence Schoolhouse, built in 1909. The current building includes some of the original windows, siding and floorboards, preserving history while adding to a uniquely attractive setting for the tasting room and extensive gift shop.
Surrounding the tasting room are expansive picnic areas with stunning views of the SIP-Certified Estate Paragon Vineyard. Two full-size Bocce courts are available for your use, or just sit and enjoy the views of the vines across the valley to the mountains.
So, on your next day trip consider visiting our charming tasting room, where you can appreciate Mother Nature and taste unique wines from one of the most special micro climates on earth. You have the options to delight in a memorable tasting experience from the friendly and knowledgeable staff or purchase wine by the glass or bottle to accompany a game of bocce ball or a relaxing afternoon outside.
