Del Dotto winery was voted as one of the most beautiful wineries in Napa Valley. It currently has two locations in Napa and St. Helena and has a plan to open another location in Napa Valley. The most visited location is St. Helena Venetian estate. The palatial Venetian architecture with the vineyard backdrop is nothing short of a fairytale.

Del Dotto is known for choosing wine barrels meticulously. The full cabernet with different oak barrels from France and U.S. are the must-check-out wines. Many of its famous wines are from medium roasted oak barrels.

The tour here is worth the money as the winery's tour guides are very knowledgeable and you get to taste wines from barrels in its gorgeous cave. Also, after the tour, they serve house-made prosciutto and olive oil with bread sticks and bread.

Unfortunately, the vineyard does not have big ground for its visitors to walk around after tastings, but still, it is a gorgeous winery to visit.
