I’ve been to del dotto so many times over the years and i always spend money. Not $5000 money but $700-$1000 money. This was by far the worst experience I’ve had. Not because of the guide. He was great. But because of the 3 couples who came in drunk and loud and very disruptive. I feel you guys should have pulled me aside and sent them or me separate.

We were in Napa during the power shut down during the red flag warning so many Vineyards were closed because of it. Fortunately Del dotto was running on a generator and we our cave tour was still secure. Tim was our guide and he was both extremely informative and entertaining. He made our experience very memorable especially knowing that we had 3 cancelations during our stay.

I have visited and also was a wine club member, but I must say without reservation this was the worst expensive wine tasting i ever encountered at DelDotto! Simon was our guide and he only seem to have interest in one couple of our group of eight, Jacqueline and her husband. Albeit quit boring for my group of four we wanted to show Simon rudest was rewarded with a $50.00 tip which did nothing!

This was both fun and educational. Our "guide" was very knowledgeable and patient with the heap of questions I had (I'm an amateur). My husband and I both felt it was a great place to start our stay in Napa as it armed us with knowledge we used for the rest of our trip. The whole staff was excellent, and treated us so warmly. It was a perfect experience, right down to the pizza at the end!

I loved this winery. I do have to say that I was worried when we first approached. I gave the first impression 4 stars because the outside is not too attractive and the signage and parking should be better. Once we went in, everything was fantastic! Loved the tour, Eddie our guide was very knowledgeable, and really enjoyed the food at the end (delicious!).

I did not like that we were expected to fill out a sheet of paper with our name, address and other information when we checked in. Felt invasive, no value to me, only value to Del Dotto. I was instantly on guard for a sales pitch, which we got. Too much wine club sales pitch. Felt like herded cattle. Not worth $75. Will not recommend this to anyone...many other places to go to without a pitch.

I signed up for this tour not knowing anything about Del Dotto wines, but was intrigued by a tour that included both caves and barrel-tasting. Our group was not disappointed. But, beyond that awesome experience, the wines were fabulous and the people at the winery were friendly and informative. Our tour guide, Chris Whitaker, was particularly wonderful.

We appreciated the architecture and the food pairings at the end of the tour. However, the entire tour was a standing tour and the lobby is overcrowded and noisy which detracts from the experience. If you appreciate this type of architecture and can overlook the tourism aspect, the barrel tasting was a good experience and we purchased a couple of bottles of wine.

Del Dotta was beyond our expectations. We arrived a bit early actually almost 45 min and we were greeted with a warm gesture during our wait with 2-3 wine tastings, a small bite to hold us over which was super nice and then we started our tour promptly at 3 pm. We were guided by Brandon who I can't give enough kudos to! We were there with celebrity guests and given VIP treatment indeed.
