Paradise Springs Winery – Virgnia Rustic Wedding Venues That I Love

paradise-springs-winery-same-sex-weddingsParadise Springs Winery is located in Clifton, Virginia right next door to Hemlock Overlook Regional Park (which is a great place for a Fall engagement session).

The winery consists of two red barns (one the tasting room and one used for cocktail hours and small events with an outdoor patio) and a historic log cabin dating from the early 1800’s and the adjacent vineyard.

According to the wineries website:

“The site of Paradise Springs Winery lies on 36 acres nestled in the quiet corner of Clifton, VA on the edge of Fairfax County. The property borders Hemlock Regional Park with the Bull Run River flowing only steps through the woods. Originally, the property was part of a one-thousand acre land grant from Lord Fairfax in 1716 to the family’s direct ancestors and has been passed down through the generations since. Several hundred acres still remain in the family today.

The original log cabin is estimated to have been built between 1800 and 1825 as there is no record of the exact date. In 1955 the property undertook a major renovation led by Howard Richter, a protégé of the great Frank Lloyd Wright. Another wing was added to the original cabin that includes a kitchen, bathroom, plumbing, and electricity. The original foundation was reinforced and transformed into a cellar complete with a built-in wine rack. Influences of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work can be seen throughout the renovation including the indirect lighting, hidden spaces, intricate electrical switches, small entrances into large rooms, and the concept of bringing nature indoors. In 1956 a red barn that sat just off Main Street in downtown Fairfax, was taken apart, individually numbered, and reassembled piece by piece on the property.”

Inside, Paradise Springs Winery is panelled in warm wood tones and rich hues.  The wineries barrel room is at the rear of the tasting room behind a dramatic glass wall.  Off the back of the tasting room is a nice covered patio with a stone fireplace that overlooks the fields surrounding the winery.
