Daou Vineyards is one of the most spectacular wineries in Paso Robles. Almost 20 years ago, Georges and Daniel Daou set forth to find an unrivaled terroir for producing Cabernet Sauvignon, a quest that led them to a place of foretold greatness: DAOU Mountain. Standing alone at an elevation of 2,200 feet, our mountain rises from the heart of the Adelaida District in the rugged coast range west of Paso Robles. It is a terroir of symmetry, power and purity. Here, the Daou brothers’ vision is to produce California “first-growth” wine, fulfilling the Adelaida District’s destiny as the world’s next benchmark for Bordeaux varieties.
The greatness of DAOU Mountain was foretold decades earlier when renowned winemaking authority André Tchelistcheff hailed it as “a jewel of ecological elements.” Then known as Hoffman Mountain Ranch, the property produced notable wines and was widely considered the birthplace of modern winemaking in Paso Robles. However, its full potential lay unfulfilled for more than 30 years.
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. Their intent was to carry the torch that Tchelistcheff and the Hoffmans lit a half century ago—and to finally fulfill the mountain’s long-held promise.
