Del Dotto cave tasting and wines are simply the best in NAPA Valley. The wine is our absolute favorite. The tasting is very professional and you learn a lot from the tour in addition to tasting the best wines in NAPA.

This was our first wine tour in Napa, but still our favorite! A family owned place that makes you feel right at home despite the "nice/ corporate" look on the outside. The cave tour was so unique! Each wine was so unique, and right out of the barrel. Our guide was able to take us to taste any barrel, there was not a set tour of ones we could or could not taste.
The food at the end of the tour-much needed- was super yummy. Cheese and meat plate, pizza, and chocolate. I would recommend Del Dotto to everyone! I can't wait to go back.

I have been to over 75 wineries. I have been here 6 times. Very good wine if you like reds. You will taste from many barrels in the cave.I would also recommend the tour at Schramsberg.

This is the best tour I have been on in the Napa/St. Helena area. Our tour guide was very informative, the wine was the best I ever had (try the 09 Pinot Noir...to die for), and the meat/cheese offered at the end of the tour really made this Vineyard stand out. Tony Incontro is doing something no one else in Napa is doing with meat and cheese and his results will blow your mind making the trip to St. Helena more than worth it. Go with the VIP tour!

At $60 this tour is not inexpensive but even this "thrifty" imbibed found the experience worth it. Basically this is a barrel tasting experience, with about eight wines tasted directly from the barrel. There was one pinot noir, one blend of several varietals, with the rest various incarnations of cabernet sauvignon. Comparing two identical blends aged in different barrels (one American and one French) was interesting. There was a tasting of their expensive Cab ( the Beast @ 250 per) tho it was not among my 3 or 4 favorites. A sauvignon Blanco from the bottle began the tour and two bottled wines (a red and a port) , served with cheese prosciutto and fresh pizza concluded the tour. Del Ditto wines are expensive but perhaps worthy of a special occasion.
