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: Our signature experience hosted inside our Venetian inspired Cave 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.
