    At paradise wine we stock an inventory of hand-selected wines, tasting each and every offering on our shelves. We are the everyday wine shop, with the majority of our wines in the under $20 price range. Our relationship with our customers is our first priority and we define our success by your satisfaction. Our continual goal is to find the wines that suit your specific palate.

    In addition to finding wines of character at great value, we also only buy wines that are farmed in adherence with sustainable or better, farming practices. For those who enjoy wines made with minimalist intervention, our inventory also features a vast selection of biodynamically farmed and natural wines, made with low or no added sulfur, indigenous yeast, and no filtration. In 2017, in the August 28th edition of Bon Appetit magazine, https://www.bonappetit.com/story/what-is-natural-wine

    we were featured alongside a handful of retailers in the US as one of the top shops for finding natural wines. While this recognition is much appreciated, our primarily purpose will always be finding wines that are standouts in their category. Located in the bustling Five Points area on Buffalo’s west side, we identify as a neighborhood shop and strive to be an integral part of improving our community.

    In summary, this is our mantra…

    • we believe in delicious and affordable wine and spirits.
    • we support small family wineries using traditional methods.
    • we rejoice in sustainable, organic and biodynamic farming.
    • you know what tastes good. we can’t wait to share our discoveries with you.

    The tasting team


    aspiring to wine nerdom and co-partner

    Best friends with co-partner Lauren, Paula finally got the chance to "open her own damn shop" when Lauren found the perfect retail space in an abandoned building that was once a hardware store in the early 1900's. Paula's approach to wine is investigative--to find the best wine, healthiest grapes, and most talented winemakers and offer it up at affordable pricing. Traveling to wine events, meeting with winemakers, networking with local non-for profit businesses and collaborating with Buffalo chefs is at the core of how paradise wine weaves itself into the fabric of a city, of a neighborhood and beyond. It's all about making the customer smile and supporting clean farming.


    Cellar Master

    Joe Nason, connoisseur and caretaker of all things yeasted, began his career at Premier back in 2008. After six years of falling in love with the wine world and learning the ins & outs of the retail side of the industry, he departed Buffalo to follow his passion of winemaking, working his first harvest at Hall Wines in the Napa Valley. Between harvests he resided in Austin, Texas flexing his pastry skills at various restaurants around the city. Four domestic harvests later (Napa, the Willamette, the Finger Lakes, and the Niagara Escarpment), life brought him back to his native WNY, where he was picked up by Paradise Wine in October of 2017. Ever the intrepid biblical scholar, you can find him in the shop professing his subversive Good News that “Jesus drank Riesling.”


    legendary founder and co-partner

    There wouldn't be a paradise wine without this hurricane force of a woman. Self-made and on her own from the age of 18 when she high-tailed from Buffalo to New Orleans with her boyfriend to learn the ways of big cities. Lauren purchased the building, originally built in the late 1800's, in 2012 and began a total restoration. Full-time city realtor, Lauren's enthusiasm is famous for helping to build safe, walkable neighborhoods in the city peppered with fun, original shops like ours!
