Went to the Napa location of del dotto mainly for the cave experience. We were deciding between Jarvis and this one. The cave atmosphere is perfect- dimly lit and rustic feeling. There are several tours going on at one time though so it can get pretty rowdy. One thing to know is that you are sampling only future wines, which... More

Never again will I visit this tourist trap. You have to pay the exorbitant fee for the cave tour and tasting upfront. So if you buy wine the fee is not waved. Most Napa places wave the fee if you buy. Way to many better options. As for the wine it is ok not great.

We call them Del Blotto for a reason. Lots of wine. Which is frowned upon in Naoa and by the alcohol beverage control. Most people come out pretty high. Which is good for sales and def loosens your pocket book. The tours are pretty good if not annoying scripted. The wine passable. The barrel samples are much better than the... More

This is a totally different tasting experience. You are escorted into the very pretty, dimly lit, sacred caves for the tasting...and actually taste right from the barrel. The wine host "thieves" the wine with this clever glass contraption. I feel like the wine host can make a big difference in your overall experience...and our host was fine...but only fine. Good...

My daughter and I visited the Napa tasting room. Loved the ambiance and of course the wines! Tried so many wines out of the barrel. The 2013 Cabernet Sauv (American Oak) still in the barrel is delicious. Bought some! I would definitely recommend stopping in to Del Dotto.

I see all the high reviews for this cave tour and just had to add my own review, as it seems to be a departure from the usual. First of all, I had heard this was a not to be missed tour, so we were excited about it and maybe our expectations were too high. I thought the price was... More

High end wines that are a bit pricey but worth the price of a tasting just to experience. Their Chardonnay was the best tasting Chardonnay I tasted on this trip to Napa. I even bought a case at $45.00 a bottle which says a lot since I try to drink wines in the $10-$15 range. Their Chardonnay was just to... More

We booked for the cellar tour, there were only four of us. We were given a glass of wine on arrival, we then had the barrel tour. We tried 17 different wines and were told about the wines in an excellent tour. You need to book this tour.

The wine was good the education was great and Dan was very knowledgable and was entertaining. That being said all the crap about Dave did this and he bought that gets old. I am buying the wine not the guy (it made the wine less attractive). We had been to Frogs leap earlier and you could see his vision without... More

A group of 8 of us had enough time for 1 tour as we were just passing through from a stay in Tahoe and on to San Francisco. I reviewed many wineries including the other Del Dotto. I had a hard time deciding which to choose but at the end of the day the Del Dotto in Napa was closer... More
