Del Dotto Estate Winery & Caves

Opened in 2007, this winery pays homage to our family’s Venetian heritage dating back to 1150.  The cathedral-like structure, sits on the original Rutherford vineyard purchased by Dave and Yolanda in 1988.  Adopting the Venetians’ desire to live in a beautiful world, the architecture of the winery and caves is unlike any other property in Napa Valley and a must-see for locals and visitors alike.

Tastings & Events

Cave Experience & Barrel Tasting $120 plus tax: This wine tasting experience is what we have become known for at Del Dotto. Our Estate Winery and Cave is Venetian inspired, romantic and opulent with Murano chandeliers and marble throughout. Guests are greeted with a pour of white wine upon arrival. Then their host will bring them into the cave to enjoy red wine varietals thieved directly from barrels that are sourced from the great forests of the world. Guests will taste a side-by-side comparison of a single vineyard cabernet aged in French Oak alongside the same cabernet aged in American Oak. Each experience concludes with a pour of featured bottled wine accompanied by a snack of house-made sourdough pizza. Please allow approximately 90 minutes and note that it is a communal standing experience.
