We had a great time, but I can understand the negative reviews as well as the positive. We did the cave tour, which was expensive ($60/person, and no reimbursement for purchasing a lot of wine). The cave is a man-made long basement/trench -- not really a cave, but pretty. The barrel tasting was all almost-ready or already bottled wine, so... More

Recently took 6 quests to the Del Dotto winery for a tasting and their annual back yard BBQ for club members. What a absolute bash it was totally 1st class. My guests learned more from their tasting than the other wineries we visited combined. This is the winery to visit and we will return again in March. It is super... More

We visit Napa and Sonoma areas twice a year. DD is one of the best experiences in either county. Do the cave tour at the St Helena location on 29 near Zinfandel Rd. Tim is our favorite guide but they are all great. His dry humor adds so much to the experience for us. :-) There are a couple negative... More

My spouse and I had our hotel concierge make a reservation for Del Dotto and we were thankful for the recommendation! The staff was wonderful and the tour focused on the caves where the wine is crafted. The pours were quite generous, and our guide was knowledgeable and a great personality. Del Dotto was a unique experience that I would... More

We loved our tour!! We did the cave tour very early in the morning and enjoyed great wine and the best cheese I have ever had in my entire life! Eight years aged Gouda. Its a beautiful building and the tour was great. It was great to hear the Bible incorporated into the tour! Highly recommend it!

I have to say that their wine is very good but the $60 each for their cave tour and tasting is a bit steep, especially since they don't wave the fee if you buy anything. A completely different experience than that at their old caves in Napa but still fun if you've never done it before.

This was far and away the finest Wine Tasting we experienced while in Napa Valley. The facility was absolutely spectacular. A must see even if you are not interested in tasting. The Cave tour was luxurious, and the pours were abundant. We must have tasted at least 10 wines at a cost of $40. per person. We loved their 2012... More

We enjoyed ourselves during the 1.5 hour tour of the Venetian caves. We were treated to barrel tasting during the tour and most of the wines were very good. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. It was definitely a bit on the car salesman side of things, but we were treated well. In fact, he was able to get... More

The servers were very rude and mean. They was nothing to see, and it was not worth the 120 dollars for the two of us. The wine also tasted very bad. It was a toltall waste of time. Has I mentioned before severs were very mean, did not treat us with any respect, and swore a lot. If you have... More

The wine was great. The tour was a blast. Learned a ton about wines and wine making. Definitely worth the time and money.
