Historic Del Dotto Winery & Caves

This historic property was one of Napa Valley’s first wineries dating back to 1885, and is where our barrel tasting experience was born. Dave and Yolanda Del Dotto restored the winery in the late ‘90s to age our red wines in the caves. These cave-aged wines proved to be more voluptuous and opulent than those aged in modern facilities, and as such, our family continues to age wines in these historic caves to this day.

Tastings & Events

Cave Experience & Barrel Tasting $120 plus tax Friday – Sunday: Our signature experience includes wines thieved right out of the barrel. Taste the difference between wines produced in oak barrels from the great forests of the world. A common example is a side-by-side comparison of a single vineyard cabernet aged in French Oak tasted alongside that same cabernet aged in American Oak. Each barrel tasting concludes with a pour or two of our bottled wine as well. With up to 45 different wines for your host to choose from, you are sure to get a customize experience each visit. Please allow approximately 90 minutes for the tasting.
