We arrived a little early to receive a wonderful greeting and were escorted upstairs to receive a glass of wine and enjoy a beautiful sitting area. On time, our host Doug, escorted us to the barrel room where we had a fabulous experience. We learned about the history of Del Dotto and about the wines they produce. At the end of the tour we were provided bread and cheese with a final pour. Do it!!

Overall it was nice, but I was expecting more. I have been through a number of private tasting tours, including cave tours in Napa, St. Helena and Amador County. This one was no more special than the others, except they fed you pizza and cheese after the tour. The cave was nice, and the tour moved along at a good pace.

Piazza Del Dotto was an amazing experience! The gourmet tapas, the myriad of great wines and the ambiance could not have been more classy. Also, the representative was most knowledgeable and professional as well as being very liberal in allowing us additional tasting of any of the wines that we preferred. We will definitely be going back and would like to try their other two facilities in Napa.

From the phone call to set it up to the exit, we were met with lovely people ready to help and make our experience delightful. We had invited experienced wine lovers to join us and they arrived early. Those at Piazza Del Dotto took my phone call and assured me they would welcome them in with a fresh glass of wine to be enjoyed and entertain them as a host would, until we arrived minutes later.

We were visiting from Washington State. We thought the $150 tasting fee for two people to be outrageous but wanted try the experience and see what the buzz was about. For the money we did not find the experience to be worth the cost. Our host was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. PS) was this survey written by a teenage girl (frenemy, bff??)ons

My daughter and I were 'assigned' to a group of young visitors who were very drunk by the time we arrived. One of the ladies was so drunk that she spit up her wine on my daughters jacket. The host should have cut these people off. In fact, when we checked in we were told that we would be assigned a personalized tour. This tour was NOT personalized and was full of drunk visitors.

This is hands down the best wine tour, and value, in all of Napa. Pours are done straight from the barrel, with an essential lecture on barrel toasting levels, the use of French and American white oak, the history and point of using the caves etc. It's really interesting and fun, and has quite a few generous pours of exceptional reds, mostly, but not all, cabs. If you do one tour, this is it.
