The 2017 Au Paradis (O Par-A-Dee) Is Located In The Heart Of The Oakville AVA’s Famed “Red Dirt” In Napa Valley, Au Paradis Is Situated Exactly Where Its Name Translates, “In Heaven.”  Planted In The Foothills On The Eastside Of The Valley’s Raised, Gently Sloping Plateau, The Bordeaux Varietals Develop Into A Classic Style With Silky Tannins And Deep Red Fruit.
