Daniel Daou, Owner, DAOU Winery
Daniel Daou, the man behind DAOU Vineyards in Paso Robles, California, recently shared his thoughts on wine, along with some of his own personal history.
The Daou Vineyard practices strict yield management - "saignees" - its wines average only 120 gallons per ton. The premium vineyard sits on 100 acres at 2,200 feet in the Adelaida Mountains. The winery is relatively new, opened in 2007 by Daniel and his brother Georges. It focused on Bordeaux style varieties in addition to Zinfandel and Rhone blends.
