The Estate is beautiful, but we were very disappointed with our tour guide. We had to drink quickly as we moved from one barrel to the other and it didn't allow us to relax and enjoy the tasting. While the place is beautiful and the wines are good, I would not do the tour again.

We had a blast and everything we tasted was delicious! The experience of getting to compare different tastes from different barrels was amazing.

Coming in we were immediately greeted and provided a glass of wine. From there we went with our tour guide and started the journey around the interior / cave of the winery. Walked all the way down the hall and learned about the different grapes / wines offered at Del Dotto / and the process of making wine. After we were served meat / pizza which was AMAZING! Great tour!!

I would not recommend this . The place was nice outside however the tour was not worth it. I did the St. Helena Estate Cave Experience & Barrel Tasting. It’s over priced for what you get. You don’t get to choose what wines you want to Taste your tour guide decides what you will taste. Their is nothing special about the caves it’s just “underground” nothing special about it.

So at first glance, you hear $75 for a tasting and are ready to run far, far away. Until you actually get to Del Dotto in St. Helena and just simply don't want to leave. From the beautiful venue to the awesome location in close proximity to some of my other NV faves, this was already a great start. BUT, then it got a whole lot better. Our host was Alex, a ball of energy who kept the jokes coming
