Napa and Sonoma Sights

Darioush

Fodor's Review

The lavish visitor center at this winery is unlike any other in the valley: 16 freestanding, sand-colored columns loom in front of a travertine building that looks like a cross between the Parthenon and a sultan's palace. You'll sense the pride that proprietor Darioush Khaledi feels for his Persian heritage throughout your visit, most notably in the warmth of the hospitality here. Although walk-in parties of six or fewer can taste at the bar, call in advance or book online

to sit at a table. In either case, the wines—often a Chardonnay, a Viognier, a Merlot, a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Shiraz, and Duel, a Cabernet-Shiraz blend—are the same. The Cabernet, the blend, and the Shiraz garner deserved praise. The Chardonnay, daringly buttery for this day and age, is the best of the whites.
