Napa Historic Bar Tasting on 3/25/17 2:30 PM

Fantastic tasting room to showcase the 2nd oldest caves in Napa. Our hostess was very well versed in the wines and didn't stick to the "script" of what was available on the tasting menu. She asked us what type of wine we preferred to drink and poured based on what she thought would best fit our palate. Will definitely go back again and would recommend the Cave tasting over the bar!

What a wonderful experience. First barrell tasting in the extraordinarily beautiful cellar. We were actually treated to many more wines than the four listed on the itinerary. Then we were led upstairs to the dining room where we thoroughly enjoyed the deliciously prepared five-course wine and food pairing. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone interested in this type of event.

Tim was fun and educated us on all aspects of wine. We highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Napa Valley area! The wines we tasted were incredibly delicious!!!

This is my wife and I first time in Napa, and we didn't quite know what to expect. Alex Horowitz at Del Dotto's Historic Caves was truly amazing. He provided an unforgettable experience as we tried their remarkably superb red wines and toured the winery. He took the extra time and effort to explain their process and provide an unforgettable experience as we toured the cave and even let us taste straight from the barrel. The history of the caves, as well as the bold, delicious Reds they make and barrel age in French and American oak are wonderful. We will definitely come back and I will recommend Del Dotto to anyone coming to the Napa area.

We walked from barrel to barrel, tasting wine that will be bottled within the next one to five months. We had some light snacks at the end, which was a surprise. Your tourguide can make or break this experience; ours had a lot of personality and he was funny and kept the experience light. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

A lot of fun and a lot of wine to try straight from the barrel. A bit pricey - would be nice if they discount or write off the tour if you buy a bottle or two (as other places do). I would have bought a couple of bottles but the price of the tour on top of the cost of the bottles was a lot.

The overall tour was terrific. Annelise greeted us with an upbeat welcome and did a nice job explaining each of the barrels we tasted from. We felt a little hesitant to take photos after we were told to hold on taking them to the end. This was disappointing since we wanted to remember the winery based off what we were experiencing at the time. I suggest this tour for larger groups of people.

We arrived quite early, and the hostess/greeter smoothly rescheduled us for an earlier tour while serving us a wonderful SB sample. Then our knowledgeable wine guide led us and some other very nice people on a sampling tour of Reds from barrels in the classic caves. Wonderful time!
