Napa Historic Cave Experience & Barrel Tasting on 5/19/17 2:00 PM

I enjoyed the host, the tour of the caves and the wine itself. However, I wanted to learn something about how the oak changes the taste of the wines or at least some insider info on how to pair different oaked wines with foods or something. I didn't feel that gained any greater knowledge than I had going in. Also the wine I wanted to buy was sold out. I don't think for $75pp I would recommend this

We took the Cave Tour with barrel tasting and enjoyed it very much. Michael was a great guide and educated us and kept us entertained. The wine is wonderful, and we got to taste quite a variety on our tour! Our son had recommended Del Dotto to us, and we were not disappointed. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Great time here. I like taking the last tour cause I feel it's more relaxed and less rushed. If you like charcuterie they have something special! It's aged in their cave too. I really enjoy the food at the end of the tour. Also no two tours are the same since they cater it to the group's taste.

It was simply incrediable! From the start to the end. Started when we entered the winery. A glass of their Chardonnay was served (refilled several times) then on to the cave. We tasted 13 different wines while in the cave. I didn't taste a bad wine. Then up to the dinning room where they had our table set with 5 glasses for our food pairing. The food was perfect. The pairings were also perfect.

We have been on this tour at least 4 times before--and have had fabulous experiences each time...except for this one. Our guide Dan, had a pre-packaged skit that he could not, and did not veer from. We were with friends who were visiting Napa for the first time, and they had lots of questions. The jokes were funny the first three times--then just extremely inappropriate and obnoxious.

The atmosphere was amazing, the wine was out of this world!, and the knowledge of our guide was above and beyond! Number 1 on our list - we would recommend this tour to everyone going to Napa!

Simon is an awesome host and Dave Del Datto is gracious and welcoming. Don't miss going to Del Datto on your next trip to Napa.

The cave walkthrough and barrel tasting is the best experience in Napa for tasting the local wine varietals. Brandon was our host and he made everyone feel welcome to ask questions and enjoy the wine. Highly recommended!
