    Amazing, panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
    My sister and I went there for an afternoon of wine tasting. The beautiful facility is located at the top of the mountain road, with amazing, panoramic views of the vineyards and rolling hills below. The service was good and the staff was friendly. The wines we tasted were excellent, although expensive. However, the experience and the wonderful views made it worthful. We were also lucky because the weather was beautiful!
    Hello and thank you so much for sharing your kind words with us. We are so glad to hear you had a wonderful visit with and will look forward to your next visit to DAOU!

    Beautiful Grounds at a price
    Wine tasting was quite expensive. The grounds were lovely and the food was OK. Our wine steward (?) was not very informative. If we didn't ask him any questions, we didn't get any information. Wine tasting should be accompanied by knowledge about the wine. I am not a wine drinker and would have appreciated learning more about the wine.

    Our Favorite
    This was without question our best stop on our two day winery tour in Paso Robles. We were greeted immediately by a very nice host. He offered us a glass of sparkling wine and took us to out outdoor table. The garden style setting and views were absolutely beautiful! Our hostess was very nice, well informed and took her time explaining the wines offered. We ordered a charceuterie board and a hummus plate, both of which were very good. The wines did not take a back seat to any of this though, all of the offerings were very very good. It might seem like a small thing, but everything was paced really well also. We never felt rushed, but we were never long with an empty glass either. All in all this was a fantastic experience which I would highly recommend!

    Beautiful views!
    The grounds are absolutely spectacular and worth the drive to see. The price for the wine tasting at $50 per person is very high considering the pour was on the small side. The charcuterie tray was very good but again spendy at a $50 price tag. It's worth the trip to just see the grounds but I would recommend just getting a glass of wine and walking around and enjoying the scenery.

    Wine Tasting at Daou Vineyards
    We have been going to Daou Vineyards for several years now and it gets better each time. The grounds are beautiful along with their tasting. The wines include Sole of a Lion, Estate Mayote, Eye of the Falcon and many others which are all great. Fun visit.
    Hi Ed, we are so glad you were able to visit again. It is always great to have our guests come back for visits. Thank you so much for your kind words and we hope to see you again soon!

    DAOU-a taste of wine heaven?!
    DAOU Vineyards is amazing! The views from up there are spectacular and their awesome silky smooth wines speak for themselves. Gabriel, our wine host, was GREAT and steered us to ordering the Mezze platter (veggies, bread, hummus platter) -excellent complement to the wines that day!

    The Best In Paso
    I love everything about Daou Vineyards. I had been there once, and then I joined as a member. What a beautiful property. The wine is so good, the wait staff is so knowledgeable and accommodating, and the food is great too. We stayed 2 1/2 hours, and could have stayed longer, but we had another wine tasting appointment. If you go to Paso, you have to go to Daou. You will not regret it!

    Birthday Celebration - with Family and Friends
    My daughter wanted to take me to this winery for my birthday celebration. We were greeted by Rachel who poured us a glass of rose which was good. Our concierge was Amanda, she was WONDERFUL! She provided lots of historical information and explained the wines. We purchase a charcuterie board which went well with all our wines. Beautiful views of the Paso Robles area. Would definitely recommend you try it. Our group was 6 and we everyone was pleased. This place provides outstanding service. Don't miss it.

    Incredible Wine Tasting with views
    The entrance with large wooden doors is very inviting as is the circular bar with tables around and in private rooms. Umbrellas on large tables outside and private verandas for special tasting events, all overlooking the mountains and hills below. Carlee Neenan was our host for the tasting and she knew everything you wanted to know about Daou and its competitors too. Chardonnay is full bodied, crisp and great nose. The Cabernate's are excellent hearty, smooth and a lasting after, full of flavor. "Soul of a Lion" is a must to taste and buy as are the Chardonnay's. Make a reservation in advance. Also have some fresh bread or one of their fantastic Charcuterie Boards. Cheers and Enjoy

    Great wine and great view
    Stopped for a visit on a Sunday, with a couple of coworkers Sarah served us and she was so pleasant and great attitude with attention to every detail. On the weekends make sure you make a reservation. They offer a free tasting for Military and Veterans which I applaud.

Beautiful winery with amazing views. Sadly the service is terrible, worst I have ever encountered. My friend and I decided to stop by and didn’t have a reservation. The server made us feel so unwelcome. We sat by one of the empty couches and then he told us we needed to move because those were special reserved, he also told us we had to buy a bottle since we were walking around the grounds without a reservation. I was ok with that or an tasting and ended up buying a $96 bottle of wine. Later I checked its price online and it’s available for $45-50. What a rip-off. It’s been awhile since I visited but the experience left such a bad memory that I have a negative response every time I see anything related to Daou.

This is a stunning place to visit. Great views and great facility. Nice staff and very welcoming.

But, the wine is very expensive and not anywhere as good as my basic grocery store $15 bottles of wine.

Gorgeous setting in which they feature imaginative foods and terrific wines. (When did YOU ever have a bad glass of DAOU?) Typically need to make reservations for lunch, especially on a nice day. Worth it---in the extreme. A great way to break up a day of wine tasing and Club pick-ups.

Beautiful vineyard tasting even though was slightly expensive. The venue is unbelievable atop the mountain with cute covered couch seating areas. Educator was super nice though. And the salad and cheese board we got were delicious in addition to the delicious wine. Totally suggest going here!
