Amazing architecture and ambiance welcome you to the St. Helena winery. The immense lobby with Italian marble and decor lead to the caves where wine is sampled directly from the barrels. Sampling from different sourced barrels shows how wine takes on a unique taste. Amazing wines and incredible in house smoked prosciutto and salamis that are offered at the end. Chris was a great tour host!

Del Dotto barrel tastings are one of our favorites. Every time we go into wine country we make a visit to either location to do a barrel tasting. At Del Dotto I learned the distinct difference between American and French oak Barrels.

First class wine tour...a must-see when in the Napa area! I took my husband and brother on the tour and they also thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a far more educational experience than I expected, without being stuffy or snooty...and without giving TMI. Learned a few things about the process of making wine that I did not know before going and found very interesting.

top shelf wine tasting event. I've taken two sets of friends & family to experience the Del Dotto caves in Napa and had the good fortune of scheduling with Alex both times. This cave and wine experience is enhanced by Alex's easy flowing historical knowledge and great sense of humor. For a place that at 1st you expect to be stuffy and pretentious it became one of my favorite tasting memories.

As always, gorgeous facility, very welcoming & hospitable, tasting so many varieties of wines, with a very knowledgeable guide. It's so hard to pick favorites when they have so many good wines to choose from. I also love being able to taste the same wine side by side in American vs French barrels. A definite favorite stop for us each visit.

Enjoyed seeing the historic cave and liked the atmosphere. The sampling of the barrels was a new experience for us. Comparing exact wines stored in two different types of oak barrels was fun. "Revisiting" some of the wines was fun too! Glad we did this tour at the end of the day. Look forward to visiting the St. Helena wine cave on a future trip.
