Del Dotto was amazing from the moment you walk in the door. The Tasting room is beautiful. We did the cave tour. When we walked in we were greeted with a glass of Rose while we waited for our tour to start. On the tour, we started with learning the importance of the barrel. We then proceeded through the caves tasting wines directly from the barrel! Doug was our tour guide. Be sure to request him!!

Piazza Del Dotto is the newest Del Dotto experience and it doesn't disappoint. Previously I'd visited the historic caves, and I have to say the Piazza is definitely a different experience.

Napa Historic Cave Experience & Barrel Tasting on 1/18/19 1:00 PM

We had a fantastic time! We were greeted warmly and felt immediately comfortable. Doug, our wine guide was terrific. He taught us a lot about every aspect of the Winery and the Process. Had no idea there could be such a large difference in whether the Oak was from the USA vs France. I must say my palate prefers the good ol' USA Oak. Thanks for Everything

Our host did a great job of leading the tasting rather than just being there.

Piazza Del Dotto Bar Tasting on 1/16/19 1:30 PM

We've attended tours and/or tastings at all three Del Dotto sites and this one did not disappoint. The new facility is amazing; I can't wait to see the finished product. Eric was a fantastic host, both knowledgeable about the wines and the property. We're definitely including this as a stop the next time we're in Napa!

Napa Historic Cave Experience & Barrel Tasting on 1/17/19 2:00 PM

I’ve been to Del Dotto multiple times. This was my least favorite tasting ever. The gentleman who took us through the caves- his presentation was way too rote and practiced. I usually come out of the caves Del blotto but I tossed out most of my wine. We didn’t think the wines were as good as they usually are. I’ll go back because I usually love the experience and the wines -hoping this was a fluke

Del dotto is consistently one of the best if not the best tasting experiences in all of Napa. If you have not been yet you should go.
