Reception to begin at 6:30 p.m. with a 4-course dinner to follow starting at 7:00 p.m.
Every great legacy begins with a back story. Georges and Daniel Daou grew up in France after their family migrated from war-torn Lebanon. While growing up in France and influenced by stimulating conversations he had with his father, Joseph, and brother Georges, Daniel became fascinated with wine.
The Daou brothers came to San Diego to attend UCSD as engineering majors. After graduating, they created Daou Systems, a health care information technology company, and then sold the company after several years. Daniel’s dream of becoming a winemaker was about to come true.
As engineers, successful business owners and quality seekers, Georges and Daniel combed the world looking at hundreds of wine terroirs. They knew to create world-class wines, they needed the best phenolics, which are organic soil compounds, and a perfect climate.
When they saw what is now DAOU Mountain in the Adelaida District of Paso Robles, they immediately knew the calcareous soil with some of the best phenolics in the world matching that of Bordeaux France, and the 2,200-foot elevation creating a climate like Napa Valley’s, would be a perfect terroir to create DAOU Family Estates.
