I have been to Del Dotto numerous times. In fact it was Robert Parkers reviews that brought me out. I started visiting the Original Napa location years ago. In fact I have recommended it to others many many times. I have been to the St Helena location 4 times. The atmosphere is quite different between the two. This location is... More

We were here in April. Seven people in our group. We did tours / tastings in the area over five days. Del Dotto was the only winery that served us food (meats, cheeses, a few varieties of pizza, and chocolate) with our tasting. The cave tour and tastings gave the tasting a unique flair we really appreciated. The wine was... More

Yes, this wine tasting is a little pricey, yes, the building is a little over the top, but this was the highlight of our day in Napa. Our tour was great, very knowledgeable and loved the experience of being in "the caves" and sampling from the barrels. The quality of the wines was excellent and enjoyed everyone I tried. A... More

Del Dotto was the final winery on our wine country vacation, and it surely did not disappoint. Upon arrival at the estate, it felt as though we had turned a corner from California to Italy, as the estate boasts gorgeous views, Italian music and mosaics, as well as sculptures and art. We thoroughly enjoyed our cave wine tasting, which was... More

From the time you go down the steps and enter the front door this is a visual and sensory experience! Very impressive Venetian style decor from the massive Murano glass chandeliers and sconces to the marble columns, floors and trim to the murals. Then the wine tasting, we are experienced "winos" and these wines were fabulous! We started with the... More

We were on our way out of Napa and saw the sign. My mom was told by her client (who is a member) that this place was good. We decided to stop by. Appointments are needed and we didn't have one. We went inside anyhow. The girl was so nice and friendly. We explained we didn't have an appointment and... More

This was my third visit to del Dotto, and just like the previous times, it was fantastic. Ed gave us a terrific tour, interacted with the group both professionally and with passion. As far as I can tell, every one in the group loved the experience and the exceptional wines. I send a lot of folks to del Dotto -... More

This was not originally on our list to visit as I assumed the caves were a trap but a friend of a friend insisted that this should definitely be on the list. I was very surprised! The dwarfs hanging out outside the winery were too cute and required some photos with outstanding poses, of course. My friend and I decided... More

I have now been to Del Dotto 3 times and loved it every time! They have amazing wine and an unreal tasting experience in the cave with lots of really good wine and port. Best tasting experience in Napa. Still think the location in Napa is better than St. Helena.
