Del Dotto is an exceptional small batch winery near Napa. Our guide did an excellent job describing the history of the winery, their wine making process, and the caves. Their barrel tasting experience is very unique and the wines are all excellent. The cabernets are especially good. This is a premium vintner!

Terrible tour host - had zero historical knowledge (at least he didn't share it if he knew anything). The space was cramped, and had 100% humidity. The entire 'tour' was standing in this small, overcrowded cave where we heard very little about the wines and had to keep moving around to allow others to pass through. Worst tour I've been on - ever. And I've been to 50+ of them.

This could have been a good experience if the host would drop the hard sell and the arrogance. Guests shouldn’t be told incessantly that this is the best wine in the world. The wine will speak for itself if it’s that good. Also, the presumption that guests have “never had an experience like this”, because no one does barrel tastings was obnoxious.

Todd was amazing. Friendly, knowledgeable and you could tell how proud of their wines he was and how happy he was to be sharing the experience with us. Definitely a unique experience relative to other tastings (of which I’ve done a lot) and even better is that you not only get that uniqueness but you get to taste exquisite wines. The 17 Pinot noir was drinking exceptionally well as were the cabs.

This winery has three locations and we showed up to the wrong location, not realizing multiple locations. The staff was gracious and accommodated us, notifying the location we were supposed to be at and taking us in as a valued guest. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and worked to make us feel welcome and included. Barrel tasting was fun and different, but focused exclusively on red wines. :(

We were here thirteen years ago and did in fact bring my best friend to visit! Hands down the best winery experience in Napa in my opinion. Not only do you get the experience of tasting from the barrel, and education, and the unbeatable ambiance of the cave. Out tour host was amazing too! Will re-visit again.

We came for our daughters 21st birthday and this was the winery she chose, and we are glad she did. The grounds were breathtaking and we were able to get some amazing pictures while waiting for our tour to start. We enjoyed the cave tour and we did learn a lot. One thing we did learn is that we don't dry wine. That was probably our only complaint, not being able to pick the wine we wanted.
