Welcome to Paradise!

Whether you are a seasoned connoisseur or a relaxed enthusiast, we strive to make your wine tasting at Paradise Hills a memorable experience. Open year-round you will want to visit often to enjoy all that we have to offer.

The Ruggiero Family founded Paradise Hills Vineyard & Winery in 1997; family owned and operated boutique winery located in the heart of an agricultural community in Wallingford, CT. It is nestled among 65 acres of rolling hills along the George Washington Trail where it produces extraordinary full-bodied wines from handpicked estate grown grapes. The Ruggiero’s believe that our handcrafted wines should be shared with family and friends and enjoyed as a compliment with foods.  So don’t forget to pack up your picnic basket with your gourmet treats and enjoy our beautiful vineyard and winery along with the beautiful landscape.

The Ruggiero Family has been dedicated to the art of winemaking and to the philosophy that the quality of a wine originates in the vineyard. There is no separation between what happens out in our vineyards and what takes place in the winery. We are dedicated to quality and creativity in everything we do. With a commitment to sustainable farming, we create wines that reflect the distinctive terroir of the Ruggiero family’s estate vineyards, as well as to highlight the craftsmanship involved in hands-on winemaking. Each wine must show style and finesse of stellar degree in order to be bottled.

Established in 1997, it is a family owned and operated winery nestled among 65 acres of rolling hills. Planting its first vineyard that year the Ruggiero family witnesses the start of their lifelong dream to own and operate a family vineyard and winery. After 14 years of operating solely as a vineyard, supplying wine grapes to several Connecticut wineries, the Ruggiero's are proud to open their new winery and Tasting Room for all to share some time in paradise. The intimate Tuscan-boutique-style winery has a handcrafted copper bar, decorative chandeliers and mahogany tables which provide a romantic setting to enjoy the countryside.
