Marilyn Harris is a third generation Napa Valley grape grower and husband, Ren Harris can trace his lineage back to a certain General Vallejo. Needless to say, the couple has established roots in California and more specifically, Napa. The pair was already growing grapes in the Napa Valley when they purchased Paradigm Vineyards in the Oakville region in 1976. Shortly after they determined that the soil was perfectly suited to growing Bordeaux varietals and planted their vineyards accordingly. Extremely devoted to quality, they've undertaken more than one replant in their tenure there, but it wasn't until 1991 that they endeavored to make their own wine. The laser-like focus on quality continues with their winemaking approach - keeping about a third of their grapes and selling the remainder to be bottled under some rather exclusive labels. Heidi Peterson Barrett (who has nothing short of a cult following) has been Paradigm's winemaker since the beginning. Ren and Marilyn have always cultivated lasting friendships - a quality that shows in their renowned wines.
