We were fed a delicious cheese plate and even pizza at the end of the tour so that was a nice surprise! I would recommend this tour to everyone because it was an overall amazing experience !

The location was nothing special, while historical there was nothing to write home about. Our tour guide came across as arrogant and seemed to enjoy tasting the wine more himself than truly speaking about the wines. The tasting itself was quite rushed; we barely had time to sip and savor exploring flavour notes before we were led to another barrel forgetting what each wine tasted like.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and the facility was very impressive. The quality of the wine was excellent. Its evident that Del Dotto wants to do everything in a first class way. They want to be the gold standard for how to build, decorate and operate a winery. Then the food pairing portion of the tour was amazing. The chefs and food are top notch. It was worth every penny.

We did not anticipate the education that came along with the experience, nor could we have expected the wine and food pairing, company, and acquired wines to make for such a memorable day. Michael brought it all together with such finesse. We look forward to visiting again soon and recommending your establishment to others.

It was an interesting tour that helped me better understand the finer nuances associated with their wines. It was fun to learn the differences. The pizza and cheese at the end was nice. It helped put a different flavor profile on the palette which in turn opened up some of the final tastings we had.

Step into a high end Italian villa with the best wines in the valley and fantastic, educated hosts. The cave tour is worth the upgrade as you get to taste some fantastic wines. These wines (and prices) are in a broad spectrum that will appeal to everyone's taste and (hopefully) budget. The most expensive ones are stunning but you'll want to save them for a special occasion!

He took his time with us and I didn't feel like we were ever rushed. The meat and cheese platter along with the pizza was a perfect ending to the tour.

My overall experience at this Del Dotto Tasting Room wasn't a warm one. I can't quite put my finger on exactly one thing but must admit that I just didn't find the room welcoming. The tasting itself wasn't anything special (I suggest a rinse or glass change after the bubbly) and I will not revisit this Del Dotto location.
