DALLAS, July 10, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The sale of DAOU Vineyards by Daniel and Georges Daou to the Australian wine giant Treasury Wine Estates netted the brothers $900 million plus an earn-out of up to $100 million. The billion-dollar transaction, which included 400 acres of highly productive vineyards in California's coveted Paso Robles American Viticultural Area (AVA), took top honors as The Land Report Deal of the Year.

The landmark transaction was one of five honored by the Magazine of the American Landowner in its annual Deals of the Year issue, which also features America's Best Brokerages and Top Auction Houses.
