  • We LOVED our experience at Del Dotto! At first I felt $60 per person was too expensive, but Michael was our tour guide and he made the experience worth it! The majority of the wines are red, but we had some of the smoothest, most delicious Cabernet Sauvignon (and other variety wines) of our entire trip to Napa. Michael was very educational, and funny! And he handled a rowdy crowd in our tour group well. Even though the tour is only through one cave, we felt the experience of tasting wine directly from the barrel was unique and awesome! At the end we counted that we had sampled at least 10 different wines and the pours were generous. We came back later in the day to purchase a few bottles, and once again Michael was extremely helpful in choosing the right wines by talking with us and providing additional samples. We will definitely return!
  • Very interesting architecture. The wine tour into the tunnel is fun. However, the property itself isn't huge and so don't expect to see a lot even with tours.
  • Cave tour was interesting and the pours were generous but the tour guide was just going through the motions. Get yourself a better guide and you'll have a five-star experience.
  • Great tour, caves are worth the trip by themselves. Was a lot of fun trying the wines straight from the barrel. Definitely a unique place.
  • It's expensive but the pours are generous. Our guide was very informative and enjoyable.
