The Del Dotto Vineyards & Caves in Napa Valley, CA now operates two different locations, but the older and much grander historic caves are located in the heart of Napa. The winery itself is located in the Napa hills and is known for providing one of the best reviewed tours in the entire wine region of California. One of the main reasons the tour is so well loved is the extensive wine tasting that is enjoyed by those touring the caves of the winery, which are taken directly from the thousands of barrels that line the route of the tour.
The estate itself is found on a site measuring more than 121 acres that can be enjoyed with tours of both the vineyards and the extensive caves. The site is popular with wine lovers as the caves were dug by hand in the late 19th century to become one of the first examples of a winery being created in the Napa Valley area. The impressive caves were restored to their former glories by the new owners of the Del Dotto family, who now operate tours and tastings that include the flavors of red wines stored in the caves.
The 350 feet long caves are located in the historic wine city of Napa and provide a beautiful backdrop for wine tastings, tours and combined food and wine tours. Any trip to Napa Valley should include a trip to the Del Dotto Vineyards, which allow visitors the chance to sample red wines aged in the traditional caves of California.
