  • The Paradise Springs Winery located in the tranquil region of Clifton, VA, is near Northern Virginia homes and also on the edge of the Fairfax County.  The winery spreads over 36 acres of land borders the Bull Run River and Hemlock Regional Park, and was originally owned by Lord Fairfax in 1716.
  • The name Paradise Springs is borrowed from the history books of Clifton, and it used to be the designation of a very famous mineral spring, situated in the west side of the town. About a hundred years ago, Clifton used to be a very popular resort destination, visited by local celebrities, including presidents and generals. However, in 1904 it was discovered that the water from the Paradise Springs is extremely pure, and that it can be drunk; therefore, it started being bottled and sold. It was famous for being bottled in bright, colorful recipients that had the word “paradise” blown into the glass, and everyone appreciated the quality of the water.

Unfortunately, after several years it lost its popularity, and the business vanished, leaving behind only the name, Paradise Springs, which still is used today as one of the finest wineries in the country.
