Clone 4 is the older of the two inaugural clones featured in the Clonal Series. It is regarded as a heritage clone in Napa Valley, where it was first planted in 1928 by famed vintner Georges de Latour of Beaulieu Vineyard. Clone 4 is also known as the “Mendoza” clone, as it was imported from Argentina by way of Bordeaux.
It was in their grandfather’s ancient olive groves in Lebanon that brothers Georges Daou and Daniel Daou developed an early love for agriculture and the rural way of life—setting the stage for them to fulfill a childhood dream here on DAOU Mountain. Our Estate Olive Oil is a tribute to this family heritage, and is crafted to the highest standards for a true expression of our DAOU Mountain terroir.
