President of the winery, Dan believes that a reputation is earned as much by distinctiveness as it is with consistency and trust. With a degree in design and architecture from UC Berkeley and later an M.B.A. from the University of Oregon, his diverse background spans hospitality, management, sales and strategic planning in investment management and wine marketing. In 1997, Darioush and his wife Shahpar founded Darioush and began to realize a lifelong aspiration to share the art, architecture, wine, craftsmanship and culture that has inspired them throughout their lives.
