I have to admit, when I was here I was concentrating more on the charged air and silly 'tasting drawings' we were making, but I enjoyed the wine and have bought and enjoyed it afterwards as well.

Del Dotto

get the cave tour - it's extensive and more than enough wine and ambiance to justify the $40 fee...

To top off the trip, stay at the Silverado Resort right across from Del Dotto.
