Each year, after fermentation of the signature vineyards, winemaker Hope Goldie selects the best barrels of the vintage to be blended into the Crown Jewel of the Darioush estate. Bottling after bottling, the wine captures its vintage’s complexity, composure and refinement in an irresistible manner that is both expressive in its youth, yet undoubtedly reveals further detail and elegance for the patient over the following decade or two. Paying homage to the exceptional quality that distinguished each vintage from the last, each vintage label bears a unique and rich example of historical Persian art.
Napa Valley, California
Darioush is the culmination of a lifetime of passion and aspiration to share the art, architecture, wine craftsmanship and culture of Darioush Khaledi and his wife, Shahpar Khaledi. Born in the mountains of Northern Iran, Darioush was raised in the remnants of Persian culture, where wine and culture were heavily embedded into society, throughout history, winemaking accompanied the very concept of hospitality, art, poetry and culture for millennia to come. Darioush was instilled with these historic ideals at an early age, and became a lifelong collector of old world wines infused with tradition but energized by modern technique. These two pillars remained key to Darioush as he immigrated to the Napa Valley as an entrepreneur determined to materialize his dream of sharing his journey through his love of wine.
