We attended the Back Yard BBQ once again this year and it is one of the best most decadent parties in the U.S.A. The wine is unbelievable and the snacks are TOP NOTCH. All you can eat & drink. Cave tour and tastings. Music. Landscaper and overall setting. PERFECTION!

This winery is not quaint, but still offers and unique experience. The barrel tasting was fun. Our guide was very funny. We did the lunch tasting, which was very tasty. The place just wasn't my style.

And the wine was expensive. We looked around, but left with nothing. However, I will say that the winery was recommended to us by a friend as one of the best tours around. Maybe next time.

You may not have heard of Del Dotto if you are a casual or even semi-knowledgeable wine drinker. We hadn't, but this is for a good reason, they don't distribute their wines. They were recommended to us by some friends who promised an unforgettable experience if we took a chance on them and our friends could not have been more... More

We knew going into our visit at Del Dotto that the place was a bit over the top with the Italian decor. Well, let's just say that over the top is an understatement! When you walk in, between the marble columns, the frescoes and the opera music playing, it's like Italian overload! And we are part Italian! :) So we... More

This tour is 21 and over. Excellent tour and definitely worth it! It was recommended to us. We booked the Napa Historic caves tour and ended up at the St.Helena location. They were able to accommodate us. Beautiful grounds, excellent tour guide (we had Todd), great wine, barrel tasting with some side by side comparisons. Overall great experience. At the... More

Great Cabernets. Spent most of our time sampling wines straight from the barrels in their cave. Tim Leonard was our guide and extremely funny/entertaining. Wines were exquisite but pricey. Did have some great table wines for about $55 a bottle, but their nice Cabernets ranged from $175 to $275 a bottle. No pressure to buy or join their wine club.... More

Visited Del Dotto with a large group & had the most amazing experience. We had a fantastic guide named, Marc, who was knowlegable, funny, & super accommodating to our fun loving group. The cave tour is absolutely beautiful & the wines are very good. It was definitely a pricier tour comparatively, but the venue & wine is well worth it.... More

I was a little nervous to go here because I heard it can be a crazy drunkin scene which is not something tthat my husband are looking for in Napa. The lobby is very ornate and looks like a room in Liberace's house. We went into the caves which are beautiful and expansive. Our guide was Simple n from New... More

The cave, barrel tasting is simply the best tasting in Napa if U aren't a member. The education and tasting straight out of the barrels in the cave is something to experience. If you don't like reds, you would probably skip it. It you like cabs, merlot or cab franc.
