If you'd like a $45/pp sales pitch and are not actually interested in learning about olive oil or getting a real tour, then this is the olive oil mill tour for you. The tour was advertised as including wine, but wine is an additional $25-$45/pp across the street because they lost their wine serving license at the olive mill on... More

All 5 of us thoroughly enjoyed our tour & olive oil, red wine vinegar, syrup & wine tastings at Round Pond. There was so much food (bread, chicken, a platter of vegies & 1 of fruit) that it was our lunch. Afterwards we walked through their garden to see, touch & taste. It was delightful!

This was our first visit to the Napa Region, and Round Pond was the second winery we visited. We absolutely loved it! We had our tasting on the second floor patio, which was a lovely setting. Dave was the sommelier/host who helped us, and he was quite knowledgeable and friendly. Christina also came to the table at one point for... More

We called for an appointment on our way and were graciously accommodated. We did the $25 bar tasting and learned a lot about the winery from our server. Really lovely facility and views. They also served much welcomed bottled water and a cranberry nut mix. Nice special touches. If you want the olive oil tasting or other special touches- best... More

My group of 4 visited round pond on the last day of our Napa wine weekend and we're extremely happy with our experience. After a rainy weekend Mother Nature provided a nice sunny day to enjoy the beautiful views from the patio. Our wine hostess (her name might be Christina) was very knowledgable and even more tolerant of our tomfoolery.... More

Did the olive mill tour. Brian was great. We were lucky to have the property manager on our tour who oversees the groves and been there 25 years. Knowledgeable and friendly yet professional. Small production and great experience. Stopped into the winery across the street. Didn't do the tour but did get brief intro from greeter and she was first... More

We love Round Pond olive oil and went there to purchase the Spanish olive oil, Unfortuantely, they were sold out and we couldn't find it elsewhere. The oil is expensive but I'm willing to pay the price....it's very good.

Hello! We are so happy to hear that you are such a fan of the spanish oil. Alas, we are currently sold out of the large bottles but do have the spanish available in the mini bottles. We are in the middle of our olive harvest and have fresh oil available to taste and purchase. Come visit us again soon!... More
