The barrel tasting in the cave was amazing! I have never tasted wine like that before. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. If you do get a cave tour get Jonathan! He is absolutely amazing! Amazing wine from every barrel and afterwords you are greeted with there own cheese, preshutto, and pizza to go with more wine!

This was by far my favorite of all of the wineries we visited in Napa. Everything from the grounds, to the beautiful lobby and bar area to the cellar itself are above and beyond beautiful. The wines we were able to sample were such a treat and obviously very well produced. I highly recommend this tour and tasting!

We expected this would be the highlight of our trip, but it was the opposite. The woman who lead our tasting was not very personable nor knowledgable in comparison to every other winery we went to during our 4 days in the region. What was supposed to be a 45 min tasting for $45 took less than 30 mins and we felt ripped off. They also forgot to serve us the chocolates included in our price.

We walked into the gorgeous reception area and were greeted with a tasting of white wine. We were early so we waited only about 5-10 minutes for our group. Jonathan was our guide and he asked us all what types of wines we liked so he could design our tour specifically to us. It was a really great experience and he was so knowledgeable on the wines and the history of the barrels. The wine was great

Jonathan went OVER and ABOVE making this experience memorable for all of us. Please give him special recognition for his professional, personable and patience at a moment that could have gone terribly wrong. :)

This was our third time to experience a cave tour at Del Dotto. We love Del Dotto and this is why we came back for a third time with our son and his wife. Our tour was the least favorite of the three. We were interrupted quite a few times in the cave with other groups walking through our discussion. It seemed more congested and noisy. It also seemed like we tasted fewer wines.

Great educational experience for wine novices. Loved sampling directly from the barrels. Although I'm probably too cheap to waste wine, they no longer allow throwing it on the walls of the caves (which sounds like a lot of fun). Our guide was very knowledgeable. The charcuterie, pizza, and chocolates at the end were okay. Would've been nice if they let us keep the glasses at this price point.

Highly recommend this experience to anyone that enjoys robust red wines or beautiful Italian renaissance decor.

Please note that both of my parents have passed. Seriously, this tour could be appropriate for a novice. Regardless of wine tasting experience, be prepared for a rather distracting level of gaudiest. I guess that the large floating blowup creatures should have served as a clue. Even though we had paid for the tour, we left early avoiding the obligatory sales pitch.

We did a barrel tasting at Del Dotto and it was my favorite stop in wine country (best of 9), thanks to Alex, our tour guide/educator/entertainer. We started off with a Sauv Blanc, received a tour of the lobby with a history lesson along the way and then, did a barrel tasting of a variety of wines. We grabbed a few cards (these wines are shipped when ready) and were treated to a tasting with food.

I was immediately greeted. The man was very kind and accommodating. Checkin was quick and they started the tour off with a lovely glass of white wine. My tasting & cave tour was lovely, with only 4 girls plus the host. I will say, it ran much longer than expected. This is predominantly REDS, so if you don't like red wine this is not the place for you! All delicious though! Warm, intimate, indoors.

Superior quality and friendly service. Prices are on the higher end, but there are different price points to choose from. Ambiance is more wine-centric at the Napa location. We share our tasting to save money and maintain sobriety. Pourers will always let you "revisit" a selection and add something extra in depending on your palate preference.
