About Winery

Although the Del Dotto story begins on our Rutherford Estate, it has expanded to include seven other specially selected appellations.

Currently our footprint consists of 437 acres with 121 acres planted of varietals including chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, pinot noir, syrah, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot and sangiovese. It took 18 years to find the ideal sites to cultivate each individually selected grape clone and to maximize the terroir flavors in the wines. Each vineyard is organically farmed, with no chemical sprays or fertilizers, and all weeding performed by hand. The plants are meticulously cared for by professional vineyard workers in order to maintain the quality of the crop that defines the Del Dotto reputation.

Tasting notes:

“A classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The bouquet is dense, exuding roasted espresso, dark chocolate, crushed rock and boysenberry puree. The mid-palate is lush and seductive, with good minerality and intriguing spice. A quintessential Napa Valley Cabernet at a very attractive price, this medium-bodied beauty can be tucked away and enjoyed over the next decade.”
