Darioush, the Persian Castle on the Silverado Trail. It is hard to not be impressed when driving in and walking into the facility. The problem is that is pretty back fired on me. Maybe the place is so refined with it's statues and crystal and artwork, etc, that I never really felt comfortable, was never warmly greeted. I know wine and have been involved in it for years, but just never really felt welcomed here. it's almost like they are targetting a high end customer but even us high end customers want to feel good about the wine, winery and the place. I's almost too spacious so you can walk in and never have any interaction with staff. The wines were good, not great in any way and do suffer from the Napa name (a good 30% above what they really are worth), but then you see a cork puller that is $18 that you can get from other wineries for $6 (yes it's a basic cork puller) and it just kind of leaves you wondering what they are thinking. Just because you think you can charge more, does not really mean you should. I will try them again, maybe in a few years, but really with so many other choices, why when I can get same or better quality wine at a smaller producer that welcomes me at the door, why would I visit or pay more for sheer spectacle? If that is what you want, a photo opportunity, then visit.

This was our first stop alone the Silverado Trail and what a great choice. We tasted some superb wines and got the low down and how to proceed from there. We were given invitations to other wineries and a few other perks.

Darioush Winery is so beautiful. The architecture is amazing. You drive up through a long tree sided driveway up to what looks like a castle. AND... the wine is GREAT. The people inside are so nice and fun. This was an amzing treat.
