We visited the historical caves. Which was an amazing place to do the barrel tasting. They weren’t shy to let you taste quite a few wines with a lovely pizza and cheese, meat plate to finish. Stick to their quality cabs, imo.

The Del Dotto winery tour is a facinating experience. It starts in the beautiful entry and atrium and continues through the small tasting tour. The interesting part of the tour is being able to taste and compare wine right from the barrels drawn out by...More

I don't normally rate wine tasting experiences which are not directly on the edge of the vinyard very high but Del Dotto is an exception. The vineyard is filled with rich Italian influence. Michelle is an excellent host, knowledgeable of the wines, and quick to...More

Of all the great wineries I've visited in California, France and Italy, Del Dotto is the peak. The location is superb. The winery and caves are magnificent. The tour is top class, and our tour guide Chris was a font of knowledge and bonhomie. Ultimately,...More

This was our favorite spot in our Napa tour. The tasting room is gorgeous and lots of Italian marble. The staff was also very friendly and inviting. This place has to make your list of wines to taste!

We loved the experience of the cave, Minnie munchies at the end, the cave experience and large pours of great wines (high priced wines sampled), all wonderful. Experienced staff and this entire venue creates an experience.
