We were scheduled for a 10:30AM wine tasting, so when we got there, we were the only patrons in the wine tasing room. Our 1:1 experience because of this was phenomenal. We enjoyed every wine selection -- we literally did not have one kind that we didn't like -- and the Cabs were AMAZING!!!

This was my third visit, the first two were amazing and I was bringing another group. Unfortunately, our host was so off-putting it ruined the experience and I would not bring others or recommend it again. It felt like our host was trying to sell us a used car - lots of exaggerated claims and sleazy feeling pressure. I was embarrassed to have brought friends.

The grounds were gorgeous but this place was really nothing special. Yeah, the cave tasting directly from the barrels was cool but this was not a $75/person tour. While the pours were generous, I felt rushed to finish the last taste and then we were on to the next one. I definitely felt like he was trying to get us buzzed so we'd be more inclined to buy. There prices were insane as well.

Upon arrival we were greeted by our guide. He introduced himself and then asked the three couples where we were from and our names. After a brief intro he stated that we were his last group of the day-week and was very happy about that. He then took us into the cave and was very rushed to move along from barrel to barrel. Most times we needed to pour out wine into waste bucket in order to be ready

The scenic views, gardens, food and wine at Del Dotto were all wonderful. We could not have asked for a prettier picture. However, unfortunately our experience was tainted a bit by the person who handled our tasting and experience. She may have just been having a bad day, but she was a little short and it was as if she wasn't happy we were there. Ask about the server if you plan to visit.

Del Dotto Winery is the best winery in all of the Napa Valley. They have three estates with Piazza being the newest and most beautiful. The barrel tastings in the wine caves is the best wine tasting experience that anyone can have in Napa. Their food pairings and wine dinners are spectacular.

This is a legendary wine cave tour for a reason. You taste out of the barrels in their magnificent caves for about 1.5 hours. They are generous with their pours, and feed you at the end. Our guide, Branden M, was absolutely terrific. He was polite and so knowledgable, and you can tell he loves his job and is proud to work there. You will be tipsy after this tour, so plan accordingly!

This place has great wine... the staff eeeeehhhh. We went to other wineries such as Nickel and Nickel, Quintessa, etc and their staff were so friendly and no pressure atmosphere. And while the wine was fantastic at Del Dotto, the staff were very sales oriented. It was a bummer that their attitude was more on the wine than the service, but oh well. We did purchase wine, because its great!

We visited Napa and decided to visit Del Dotto historic caves since I already visited their St. Helena caves. Our experience was bad here. St. Helena so much more better... Our guide here was Kyle. Very dry and quick tour. Barely any wine to taste. Very short pours. It says online that the tour is 1.5 h but it was barely an hour.Too pricy. Not worth it. Do not go here. More better places to see...

The Piazza Del Dotto is a wonderful new venue with great food and wine pairings! 2nd Del Dotto Delicacies for my husband and me. Our prior pairing was held at Del Dotto Estates. This year we were visiting with friends, so we popped into Del Dotto Estates prior to our pairings so our friends could experience the Estate. Looking forward to the completion of the Caves at the Piazza!

Trying the different wines straight from the barrels in the cave was a very unique experience that is unlike any other tasting we had been on. The pizza at the end was delicious as well!!

We arrived early and were treated to a complimentary glass while we waited for the tour to start. Our guide was AWESOME!! Super friendly, knowledgeable and a very dry sense of humor.
