Paradise Rescued hand produces fine organic Bordeaux wine.
Our History and Heritage
Paradise Rescued is a certified organic micro winery based in the beautiful village of Cardan, Bordeaux France. Our objective is to produce high quality Bordeaux red wine for sale across the world.
Paradise Rescued was created out of its owner’s dreams: firstly (and foremost) to protect and sustain the beautiful land and area in which they live in SW France and secondly to produce organic high quality handcrafted wines.
As the village of Cardan started to expand, the property development of the village threatened to remove the rural heritage of the village with its views overlooking the 12th century church. When land close around the owner’s property became available for potential housing development, the time for action had arrived.
Paradise Rescued commenced with less than a half hectare block of Cabernet Franc in 2009/10 followed in 2011/12 with the additional of a small section of (now) 65 year old vignes and an area that required replanting. This land was replanted in Merlot giving a 3/10th hectare total Merlot vineyard plus a small section of Cabernet Franc two the north of the property.
Today Paradise Rescued consists (in total) of approximately one hectare of Cabernet Franc and Merlot vineyards and is one of the smallest niche vineyards in Bordeaux.
The soil is a soft clay typical of this “right bank coteaux” area of the River Garonne lying across limestone and is ideal for producing forward excellent quality fruity soft red wines.
