Paradise Springs Winery

Located in the Cattle Pavilion - wines provided by Pinky and Pepe's Grape Escape
Clifton, VA

The site of Paradise Springs Winery lies on 36 acres nestled in the quiet corner of Clifton, VA on the edge of Fairfax County. The property borders Hemlock Regional Park with the Bull Run River flowing only steps through the woods. Originally, the property was part of a one-thousand acre land grant from Lord Fairfax in 1716 to the family’s direct ancestors and has been passed down through the generations since. Several hundred acres still remain in the family today.

In a day and age where working together within the same industry almost never occurs, Paradise Springs Winery is the product of a fellowship that the Virginia wine industry displays. By working hand in hand, a first class winery has been born closer to Washington DC than ever before. An anomalous victory in which agriculture has beaten development. Today the site remains one of the few historical gems left amongst the ever expanding city sprawl of Northern Virginia and will continue to be a passed family relic for generations more to come.

Twin Valley Distillers

Cattle Pavilion
Rockville, MD

First Distillery in Montgomery County, MD SPIRITS ARE RISING IN MARYLAND  The “good old days are back” for this old line state of Maryland. The onset of Spring 2014 marked the arrival of the first distillery to operate in Montgomery County since the ending of Prohibition. Twin Valley Distillers opened its doors in Rockville on East Gude Drive. This historic feat is much to the pride of its owner and founder, Edgardo Zuniga. Zuniga a retired chef, over the long course of his career became interested in in pairing fine sprits with food. This led to an interest in alcohol production and after leaving the culinary arts he turned this passion into a business, thus Twin Valley Distillers was born. Offering up varieties of premium vodkas, rums and whiskeys, we are truly MARYLAND AUTHENTIC.
