Del Dotto Vineyards is a small, family owned winery located in beautiful Napa Valley that has been making small production premium wines for over 20 years.

The Del Dotto’s have acquired vineyards located in some of the best spots for growing grapes: Rutherford Bench, St. Helena Appellation, Howell Mountain and Sonoma Coast. They currently make Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese along with Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast and will soon be making Chardonnay as well.

The Del Dotto family opened up their ancient caves, hand dug in 1885, to the public and decided to host extensive barrel tasting tours to help educate wine lovers around the world about Oak Barrels. Dave Del Dotto started an educational program teaching wine consumers how the barrels affect the wine and have been experimenting with over 40 different barrels from various Coopers from France, America and Russia.

In just a few years they have become one of Napa Valley’s hot spots! They have become the only winery to bottle wines directly out of individual French and American oak barrels. Del Dotto continues to experiment with ancient winemaking techniques with an ultimate goal: To make great wines that will bring people together to enjoy life with family and friends!

Very interesting architecture. The wine tour into the tunnel is fun. However, the property itself isn't huge and so don't expect to see a lot even with tours.

Great tour, caves are worth the trip by themselves. Was a lot of fun trying the wines straight from the barrel. Definitely a unique place.

Went to Del Dotto very excited and left feeling used. The experience they offer is very overpriced for what you get, and our host was quite low on his level of fun and very high on his level of snootiness. They have good wine, but there is a lot of good wine in the area for much more down to earth price points. The experience seems like it is a wine tasting in caves and meat and cheese pairing after the tour. Although that is true, both are on the slim side. The tastings were small and you were not given an opportunity to taste a second time. The meat and cheese plate they put out is more sized for two and they served it to eight. This left everyone feeling uncomfortable that they might be taking away the chance for someone to try something on the plate as there wasn't even a taste of each element for each person. This part of the tour is also very rushed at the end after you do the cave tour and while they are hoping you buy their overpriced wine - $85 - $195 a bottle which is not even bottled yet. The cave itself seems gimmicky too. In terms of our host, he started out fine with a nice greeting, but became more and more snooty as the tour went on. Someone needs to tell these folks how to have fun and welcome guests; especially those who may be shelling out that kind of cash.

Cave tour was interesting and the pours were generous but the tour guide was just going through the motions. Get yourself a better guide and you'll have a five-star experience.

This winery is overrated and definitely overpriced, Paying $60 per person. The only tour given is through a short cave. The wines are OK, but not worth the money!!

Book early and book now. Cask tastings in Napa are few and far between. Great educational tour of the wine caves followed by pizza to allow you to regain your sobriety before departing to your next stop.
