ParaVi Commitment to Limited Production & Access
ParaVi is committed to keeping our total wine production to no more than 3000 cases a year, and to the production of only our 4 signature varietals. We impose this limit by choice in order to maintain the highest quality product possible.
ParaVi wines are only available directly from the winery and through membership in the ParaVi Wine Society. We never sell to distributors or restaurants. We have never entered our wines into competitions or participated in wine tasting events outside our own tasting room. By doing this we focus on crafting our premium products and making your association with ParaVi Vineyards an exclusive, and memorable experience.
