Overall it is a nice winery and the wines are good. I also believe that part of the winery experience is the host/guide. In our case, our host was not that engaging which definitely impacted our overall impression.

I have been to Del Dotto before, and on this trip I did a different location. Wow! The new location is just beautiful! The tour is amazing, the wine cave is just sooo cool! The wine is so good and the experience there is just amazing! They also make you fresh pizza and appetizers at the end. I highly recommended it!

This was absolutely our favorite tour in Napa. The best experience, beginning to end, best wine, most educational! We were fortunate to have a small group which helped it seem very attentive. Our host was exceptional, passionate and knowledgeable, thanks Ed! It is unique experience because of the caves site vs a vineyard as well as barrel tasting and the only place that provided food with tasting

We had a tour scheduled and this is the first winery that made us [pay in advance. Typically they wait to see if you buy wine, which I did (and a lot) but still had to pay the tasting fee. This was a first, usually when you buy they give you free tasting or some discoiunht off the tastings. Still a good wine and nice visit but just a little off putting the way it went down.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and tasting at Dell Dotto. Simon was our host and was excellent- professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The tour through the cave was fun and having tastings straight from the barrel was unique. Simon had us try the exact same wine stored in two types of barrels- American oak and French oak. It was amazing how we could tell the difference. Providing a snack at the end of pizza and a charcuterie tray, was a great way to end our tour. I would highly recommend a visit!

Very knowledgeable and very personable at the same time. Having David there to explain his history and vision was the icing on the cake. His personal story was enlightening.

The woman at the front desk was pleasant enough but it felt forced. Our guide was great as was the other couple in our group. Unfortunately, a third couple arrived about 15 min late and were very loud and obnoxious throughout the entire tour. The guide did his best and was professional but it definitely soured our experience.

Del Dotto's Napa winery isn't much to look at from the outside, but that all changes once you get inside. The caves are mesmerizing and the staff are very friendly. Our tour with Doug was great. We learned a ton about wine barrels and had some great pours straight from the barrel. The charcuterie and pizza were top notch. My only knock is that no discount on wine purchases.
