George and Daniel Daou left Lebanon when the civil war escalated in 1975, emigrating to France where they discovered their passion for wine, before settling in California. They’ve established themselves in the Adelaida District, where Patrimony Estate can be found. If you are not familiar with Paso Robles, now is the time to get to know it. As Josh Raynolds of Vinous explains, “[Paso Robles] deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Napa when it comes to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot”. The phenolics produced from the vineyard are amongst the highest in the world, yielding wines of intense colour, complexity and structure.
