Fantastic is but one superlative to describe the wine cave experience. Even as we were entering, a guy leaving was compelled to tell us it was fantastic as he was going out the door. Whether you do the historic or the Venetian cave (we did both) you will be wowed with incredible ambiance, incredible service and wonderful wines.

We did the historic cave tour and it was the biggest disappointment of all our winery trips -- and we have taken 4 trips this year. We waited for a long time to start. We just went down one dark hallway with wine barrels. Our guide was very boring. The food was meager and no chocolate as promised. There were no white wines other than one taste as we waited. We paid $150 for nothing much.

Beautiful spot, but poor experience. At most wineries, after you finish your tasting, you’re allowed to purchase a glass or bottle and go enjoy the scenery/grounds. Del Dotto doesn’t allow you to do that. Aside from the tasting, we have never been to a winery that doesn’t allow you to drink wine. Thus, very poor experience and we sadly didn’t purchase any wine because of it.

From the outside, Del Dotto is quaint and reminded me of a place you would find in Italy. On the inside, it is beautiful and going into the cellars was awesome! My husband and I enjoyed sampling wine from the barrels and learning of the history of Del Dotto and a little about what goes into making fabulous wines! Our tour guide was informative, and funny.

Del Dotto was by far our favorite stop in Napa Valley. The wines were incredible, the cave experience was very cool, and our guide was insightful and kept things light. We also received a full lunch afterward (pizza, cheese, cured meats). Ten tastings + a meal in a great environment was well worth the trip.
