There's nothing quite like wine tasting in a castle. If you've got the time, do the cool cave tour, too!

About this wine

Wiki

Del Dotto Vineyards is a small, family owned winery located in Napa Valley that has been making small production premium wines for over 10 years. The Del Dotto’s have acquired vineyards located in some of the best spots for growing grapes: Rutherford Bench, St. Helena Appellation, Howell Mountain and Sonoma Coast. They currently make Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sangiovese along with Pinot Noir from the Sonoma Coast and will soon be making Chardonnay as well.

The Del Dotto family opened up their ancient caves, hand dug in 1885, to the public and decided to host extensive barrel tasting tours to help educate wine lovers around the world about Oak Barrels. Dave Del Dotto started an educational program teaching wine consumers how the barrels affect the wine and have been experimenting with over 40 different barrels from various Coopers from France, America and Russia.

In just a few years they have become one of Napa Valley’s hot spots! They have become the only winery to bottle wines directly out of individual French and American oak barrels. Del Dotto continues to experiment with ancient winemaking techniques with an ultimate goal: To make great wines that will bring
people together to enjoy life with family and friends!
