Established
2007

DAOU Vineyards is a 100-acre premium vineyard estate located at 2,200 feet in the Adelaida Mountains of Paso Robles, California. Founded in 2007 by brothers Daniel and Georges Daou, the estate primarily focuses on Bordeaux varieties and also features Zinfandel and Rhone blends. DAOU Vineyards exquisite terroir with its calcareous, high percentage limestone soils, maritime influence and unique climate represent the perfect storm for creating classic wines that can rival the world’s best. Meticulous vineyard management and a French approach to making wines have already earned DAOU Vineyards accolades for their wines.

No words or pictures can give you the experience of being on top of DAOU Mountain at 2,200 feet elevation above sea level. We invite you to come see for yourself.

Privately guided tastings are offered for guests seeking a more intimate and personalized experience at DAOU. Your experience begins with a pouring of our highly-rated Chemin de Fleurs. Your host will then guide you on an exclusive tour of our historic bell tower to take in the vistas and learn the history behind the symbol of our winery. Upon your return, you will be seated at a privately reserved table where a DAOU wine educator will guide you through one of our DAOU Reserve Wine Pairing Experiences: Wine & Cheese or Wine & Chocolate.

Wine & Cheese
Our Wine & Cheese Pairing Experience includes six winemaker-selected DAOU Reserve wines paired with artisan crafted cheeses from around the world. Your host will guide you through each pairing and reveal how the flavors and textures combine to create a perfect experience for the senses. Available daily at 11:30 am, 1:30 pm, and 3:00 pm. Reservations required.

$50 per guest Monday – Thursday
$60 per guest Friday – Sunday
