Being able to taste directly from the barrel is such a cool experience. You have the opportunity to taste many different kinds of wines and the host is very knowledgeable about how the whole process works. We learned so much about the bottling process. Then at the end we got to enjoy meats and cheeses, the winery's delicious olive oil and yummy pizza along with some more wines. A must see!

Not the same as 2-4 years ago. Rushed, commercial, seemed more like a Time Share sales pitch than Wine Tour. Questions above are too general and about ambience and feel.

4 stars as I was a underwhelmed by the overall property for $75/tasting. This was my first time to Napa &I had heard people describe how beautiful the grounds of the winery were. What I had been recommended by others was the Del Dotto Estate Winery & Caves that's located in St. Helena. They definitely serve you more tastings than others, which for the $75/tasting is expected. Tour guide was great

The ambiance was great and we were offered a tasting right when we walked in the door, which was fun. But, the music that played throughout the whole tour (even in the cave) was MUCH too loud. It was hard to hear our guide and concentrate on what he was saying. Having music in the cave detracted from the experience. It didn't feel personal.

Arrived to the beautiful setting and building, entered the gorgeous lobby. We talked with one of the girls at the front desk about our reservation for cave barrel tasting. As it turned out, we had unknowingly booked the Silverado trail location and arrived at the 2nd location. But these folks were VERY accommodating and said it was absolutely no problem. Alex, our guide, was 5 star service!!!!

Brandon was a great host. When we arrived it was a little overwhelming and intimidating because of the opulence and vastness. It was crowded and we thought it was going to be a large tour. Once we met Brandon and our small group of 9 it was a wonderful experience. The wines were fantastic. Would highly recommend it.

Best of all was our tour guide and wine educator, Alex. He was warm, very knowledgeable, and hilarious. We were glad it was our only tour of the day, as the experience would have been impossible to top!

Pleasantly surprised by the entire experience. First, I thought we would be part of a group at a large table - we were not! We had our own table with our own knowledgeable and friendly master of wine, George. The delicacies were just that and the presentation, taste and pairings were exceptional. George even went rogue and provided a couple of tastings off the menu, much to our delight.

You absolutely must visit. Our only wish is that we came later in the day and got to stay longer. #requestgeorge

Great experience. Wonderful locations. But confused on the tasting menue. It said 7 wines but we got only poured 5 . The first one double though. Olive oil was on the menue but during the tasting there was nothing with oil. For the price, upgraded to the better one, the pours could have been a bit more generous . Food was outstanding.

The atrium was beautiful, but I didn't feel like it was a tour of anything but barrels. The wine was delicious, but I felt there were so many wines they offered from the barrels, you couldn't truly enjoy them and had to throw them out because it was time to try new sample. Our group titled it "speed tasting".
