About Us

Del Dotto Vineyards has three locations. Our old Historic caves located at 1055 Atlas Peak Road in Napa, our Venetian style Estate caves in St. Helena located at 1445 St. Helena Highway and our new Tuscan style winery Piazza located at 7466 St. Helena Highway (across from Mustards).

This Historic property was one of Napa Valley’s first wineries dating back to 1885, and is where our barrel tasting experience was born. Dave and Yolanda Del Dotto restored the winery in the late ‘90s to age our red wines in the caves.
Opened in 2007, the Estate 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.
Our newest property, Piazza Del Dotto, begins with an Italian-inspired “barchessa,” or barn, surrounded by 8.5 acres of cabernet sauvignon, vegetable gardens, 17th century fountains and an outdoor barn with turkeys, peacocks, pheasants and chickens. The wine and food pairings are at the heart of Piazza Del Dotto, embodying our philosophy that wine tasting should be a complete sensory experience.

Bar tastings, cave tours and barrel tastings are available at all three winery locations. Piazza features wine and food pairings by our chef trained at the French Laundry. To learn more about each location, please visit our website at www.deldottovineyards.com.

View

The Old Historic caves built in 1885 take you back in history. The new Venetian Style Estate caves show you the grandeur of an Italian palace.

Unique Features

Our old Historic Caves in Napa were hand dug in 1885 by Chinese immigrants. It was originally built as a winery and later became the Hedgeside Distillery. It is an Historic building. Our New Venetian Style Estate caves were built with stone, marble and terracotta from Italy completed in 2007. It has the grandeur of a Doge's palace in Venice but the hospitality is very down to earth Napa Valley.
The barrel tasting is unique in that you can taste the same wine on different oak barrels and purchase the wine from the barrel of your choice. At the Estate winery we also make a unique "clay pot" wine. We make and store the wine in hand made clay pots made from the clay of Tuscany.
Piazza is patterned after a barchessa or barn in Tuscany that has been remodeled into a beautiful winery. We serve world class wines and food and are know for our Delicacy tastings.

In-house chef,

Joshua Schwartz
