Paradocx Vineyard Profile
Written by Brian—Jun 30, 2018
Situated in the Brandywine Valley among some of Pennsylvania's best wineries, Paradocx Vineyard has been producing fine wine since 2003. The 101-acre property was historically a dairy farm, but today 30 of those acres are devoted to 14 different varieties of grape. The estate fruit is processed onsite by winemaker Gabriel Rubilar to bottle 15,000 cases annually.
The Paradocx moniker is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the couples, all of whom are doctors, that jointly own the winery. This ownership team pooled resources to convert a large existing barn into a very cozy tasting room and modern winery complex. Visitors will find ample tasting space and additional room for public and private events.
I tasted through about a half dozen wines and found all of them to be of respectable quality. I can give high marks to the unoaked Chardonnay and the single-varietal Cabernet Franc. Both were expertly crafted. The Chambourcin rosé also merits a shout out.
The Paradocx version of box wine is a paint can. A pair of wines aptly named White Wash and Barn Red are dispensed from this container. It is admittedly gimmicky, but cute. The unique vessel is almost certainly a crowd pleaser.
Paradocx Vineyard is a fun stop on your tour of Southeast Pennsylvania wineries. The staff is customer oriented, the venue is lovely and the wines are quite good. After your visit, please let me know what you think.
