The barrel-tasting tour and Del Dotto caves was among the best we've ever experienced. We were in a small group and were assigned to tour guide Steve. First of all, these wines were all superb, even though young and straight out of the barrel. Second, Steve's knowledge of the wines, the wine-making process, and the history of the Napa Valley...

This truly is one of the best Wine tours my wife and I have been on. pulling in to Del Dotto was very unassuming and what looked to be quite small from the outside was breath taking once we walked down the stairs into the Main Room. Just stunning!!! Everyone was very nice and friendly staff. We walked into the... More

Let me begin by saying that we knew that this vineyard was very showy, over decorated, and "cheesy" so to speak, but we were interested in doing one barrel tasting/cave tour so we settled on this one since it fit our schedule. Dan was our guide and reminded me of a cast member at Disney World with his rehearsed silliness... More

Wine tasting in Napa is always fun. Del Dotto is amazing not only for it's great wine but for it's gorgeous interior wine tasting room and wine caves. Beautiful classical chamber music added to the experience. We loved their Chardonnay and Merlot and purchased 4 bottles. Tasting fee was 45 for 6 tastes. Very nice knowledgeable server explained the wines... More

Recently visited Del Dotto in Napa (not the one in St. Helena). Chris Whitaker gave us a great tour of the cave and we tried some wines straight from the barrel. Chris was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The tour is quite pricey ($60) but does last approximately an hour and is followed with some bites.

Del Dotto was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint! Tim, our guide, was fun. Just watch yourself, they are very generous with their tasting pours!! All around a great time and a beautiful place.

We had the best experience here! We started off with a glass of bubbly and then a Chardonnay before our tour began. Alex was our tour guide, he was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned a lot and tasted so many wines all while enjoying the ambiance of their barrel caves. This is a must do!!
