Ultimo: Le Grand Voyage calls for incredible wines. Each year The Grand Banquet is the stellar dining experience of the Weekend festivities with courses prepared by huge celebrity chefs. Brothers Daniel and Georges Daou of DAOU Vineyards and Winery in Paso Robles will debut their Patrimony Cabernet Sauvignon at The Grand Banquet. This is the 2nd year they have been part of the Grand Banquet. We’ll chat with them.
The Patrimony 2013 (decanted from elegant, large format bottles) was magnificently paired with Chef Curtis Stone’s Fifth Course of Lamb Shoulder, bacon, tongue and ribs with potato, turnips and rutabaga.
DAOU Estate Collection wines are made from the finest vineyard blocks on Daou Mountain and aged extensively in hand-selected custom-crafted, new French oak barrels. These wines showcase the visionary talent of Winemaker Daniel Daou, and embody DAOU’s mission to produce first-growth Cabernet Sauvignon from the unrivaled terroir of DAOU Mountain.
DAOU Reserve Collection wines are made from premium fruit sourced from DAOU Mountain as well as select Paso Robles vineyards. Throughout the growing season, Daniel Daou is actively involved in the management of these vineyards to ensure the highest quality. These wines are distinguished by signature qualities of grace and structure.
Visitors are warmly welcomed to visit DAOU for a variety of tasting experiences by advance reservation.
