Daou Winery 

As children growing up in Lebanon, brothers, Georges and Daniel Daou, fell in love with the rural way of life during visits to their grandfather’s ancient olive groves. The Daous were forced to immigrate to Paris and later moved to Southern France. It was here- surrounded by vineyards that reminded them of their childhood- the Georges and Daniel first began to dream of a life in wine.

Their vision was to produce unrivaled Cabernet Sauvignon. They spent year searching for the ideal terroir in California. Indeed, the moment that they first set eyes on their staggering mountain in the heart of the Adelaida District, they recognized it as the place they had imagined all along- a singular property with an impeccable confluence of soil, aspect and climate. When Georges and Daniel acquired the original Hoffman Mountain Ranch property, they began restoring the original redwood winery to preserve a vital part of Paso Robles history.

Today, they produce world class wines that truly characterize the Paso Robles wine spirit. Visit their tasting room which sits at 2,200 feet in elevation with amazing 360-degree views of Paso Robles Wine Country and beyond.
