This place was our first visit and it wowed us. The place is beautiful and the only place that took our tastings right from the barrel. Tour guide needed to talk about wines a bit more he was chatty about a lot of subjects. Dried meats and cheeses afterwards, would have been better during. Red wine was great and the... More

I have been on over 50 winery visits and this one is my favorite by far! You really feel like you are in a true winery. Having the tour in the caves is brilliant! Great music in the caves! The Doors!

We visited the St. Helena location and did the cave and tasting tour. So much fun and is my favorite winery. We sampled at least 10 wines and all of them were fabulous. Also we got to have different meats, cheeses and pizza to go with our wine. I highly recommend this place to everyone. We will be back to... More

After parking our vehicle we approached the small unpretentious building and followed directions to their tasting room situated a level below, down an outside staircase. Upon opening the doors what we saw was completely unexpected. The over the top authentic Venetian theme of the reception area was breathtaking. The marble columns holding up the vaulted ceilings surrounded by beautiful artwork,... More

I loved the barrel tasting, great wines, learned a ton from our guide Eric who did a great job! Did not love the Glammy marble, and velvet decor everywhere, little too much for what I think of finding in Napa, and this is just a tasting room, no wine made here, must be down the road at their other location...

We had visited Del Dotto in Napa the last time we were in Napa and enjoyed it. The location in St. Helena was a very over the top, Vegas type of atmosphere. While the cave tour was ok, it was expensive. It cost $60 per person or $120 for my wife and I together. The problem for me is that... More

We had been to quite a number of wine tours, but this one was one of the best. A man made cave that was chipped out by hand with picks and shovels sets the atmosphere. Our guide was Brad Parker, who was extremely knowledgeable with all aspects of the wine world, and truly a pleasure to be with. He taught... More

My wife and I learned about this winery from a seat mate on our flight to San Francisco to visit Wine Country. After we arrived in Napa, we quickly booked the St. Helena Estate Cave Experience & Barrel Tasting. This was a delightful experience! We were greeted with Italian music, mosaics, and decor. We started with a glass of Cabernet... More

If you've ventured through Wine Country, you know that sometimes wineries can blend into one another: A walk through a maze of stacked barrels, a little chit-chat, followed by a stop at a tasting room where you can fill out a sales sheet and fork over your credit card. NOT SO, at Del Dotto. This is a truly unique experience... More
