Let’s talk about the biggest reason people visit Del Dotto: the one-of-a-kind historic caves! The caves are hand-dug and date back to 1885. The property was one of Napa Valley’s very first wineries, far before the practice exploded in popularity nearly 100 years later! The first official Historic Del Dotto Winery & Cave as we know it today opened back in 1999. The caves proved to be the perfect spot for storing and aging wine, and “cave-aged” wine quickly became the signature of the brand. They provide tours for the caves every day, which takes visitors into the cave and includes selections of wine, as well as cheese, salami, pizza, and dark chocolate. It’s an unforgettable experience that you can brag about to your friends when you get home!
