  • This was my favorite winery on our trip to Napa. The wine was good, but the staff was so friendly and really gave so much more personal attention than anywhere else we went. You could tell it was a fun place to work and they enjoyed their jobs. The cave was also very cool to see and the grounds and building are just gorgeous.
  • Regardless of the wine quality, Audra running the tasting has a huge attitude and is incredibly rude to her customers -- she commented on ID photos and was heard gossiping to her coworkers. Also, tastings for bigger groups are conducted at the check-in desk, and the winery decor is gaudy and tasteless. Skip Del Dotto for somewhere with better hospitality.
  • If you tour Del Dotto, I hope you have Dan as a guide. Dan was a wonderful guide and really made the experience with his breadth of knowledge and great sense of humor! Also a very unique experience being able to taste straight from the barrel. It was an added treat to sample some of their homemade meats.
  • The reds here are fantastic and if you're in a good group that's engaging and enjoys conversation your guide should open up a wonderful world of Del Dotto wines to you. I was skeptical about the tour, but that's how I am generally with tour groups at vineyards, but this one was more personable.
  • Del Dotto wines are the best or among the best in the world. The tour experience is the best in California for many reasons. First, the wines are spectacular. Second, the locations are superior. Third, the staff is knowledgeable and highly trained. Fourth, the wine tasting experience is educational and exhilarating. Fifth, there often are tasty food delights. Sixth, you can then buy wines which are not available any other place. Enough said?

Where to stay in St. Helena

Because St. Helena is nestled in upscale wine country, most people who visit have no intention of roughing it. As such, the city sports a number of luxurious hotels. Several boast restaurants, hot tubs, and swimming pools; however, keep in mind that those with extensive grounds tend to be farther away from the main street. Budget-conscious travelers can find some more basic motels (looking farther out of town is a good way to save a few dollars). However, those staying on the outskirts should be aware that parking--particularly during high season--can be challenging in the city.
