Darioush Winery
By Kylene Keith

Darioush Khaledi, a man passionate about fine wines founded Darioush Winery in 1997. Khaledi grew up in Iran's Shiraz region, a wine-growing region until the Islamic revolution. His father made wine as a hobby, and as young boy, Khaledi used to sneak sips from the barrel. As an adult, he became a devoted collector of fine wines. Immigrating to the United States in the late 1970's Khaledi's passion for wine never waned. In the early 1990's he embarked on a worldwide search for the ultimate vineyard estate. Darioush Winery is the culmination of this search.

Nestled in the eastern slopes of the Napa Valley near the Oak Knoll and Stag's Leap appellations, the Darioush Winery's unwavering vision is to craft elegant, complex, world-class wines in the finest Old-World style yet reflective of the expressive fruit of one of the Napa Valley's finest Estates. The small and dedicated Darioush Winery team works passionately to create some of the finest wines from the world famous Napa Valley.
