Napa Historic Cave Experience & Barrel Tasting on 10/14/18 10:00 AM

The best tour we had while in Napa. The historic man made cave was super cool and you taste wine right from the barrel. What I also loved about this tour was at the end they pair some wine with food for you, definitely makes a difference. Our guide was Kyle, he was very knowledgeable and honest. Their wine was realllly good too. Must see in Napa!

Piazza Del Dotto Poppers on 10/11/18 4:00 PM

The grounds were beautiful. The poppers were very good. However, the paired wine was mediocre. The Blanc was the best of the 4 parings, then we sampled 2 more of the more expensive Cabs. These were good, however they are significantly over-priced as compared to other vineyards of the same quality. We are regular visitors to the region and have a good sense of quality wines and prices.

Lovely building and garden. Charging station was partially blocked by owner’s Bentley! But happy they had charging. Host was pleasant and the small bites flavourful but small. Wines were nice. They tried a comparison tasting between Cabernet Sauvignon in French versus American oak but the years were different which limited the comparability. All in all a very nice day in Napa.

We loved the look of the place. The grounds were beautiful as well as the caves. Our guide was great and had lots of information. The wine was not all to our liking. Very spicy tasting. The last taste was the best. It was and expensive tour at $75 a person and really disappointed that it did not include the tasting wine glasses! I bought them anyway because I liked them. Too many $$$ for service.

We live locally, and only very rarely do we go wine tasting. Our son was visiting from the East coast and wanted to try something new and different. We booked the last appointment of the day. Shauna was our host for the tasting. She was warm, sweet, and gracious. Never hurried us through, poured a few extra things for us to taste....tasty wines too. Highly recommend this. I will return.

Overall 5 star experience from start to finish. One of the best tasting experiences we had in Napa valley! They weren't stingy with their pours, offered excellent education on winemaking, let you compare differences in oak barrels, and offered food at the end! I would recommend to anyone going to Napa for wine tasting.

The cave experience and barrel tasting was amazing! The guide tailored the tasting to the likes/dislikes of those in our group. We didn't know a lot about Del Dotto going into this, but we have friends that raved about it, so we decided to check it out. We are so glad we did! The caves are really cool and we got to try so many different wines!

Del Dotto Winery was certainly among the best wineries we visited on our trip. The ambiance is unsurpassed; the young lady who poured our wine for us (Jessie) was pleasant, knowledgeable, and very personable; and, of course, the wines were great, especially the Chardonnay. I would recommend a vist to this winery to all of my friends and family.
