A Growing Tradition: For nearly a quarter century, our family has been growing some of the finest winegrapes in the heart of the Napa Valley's acclaimed Rutherford region. Home to some of the most famous American vineyards, and some of the most coveted Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, Rutherford is widely recognized as one of the great viticultural regions of the world. Over the years, we have cultivated a nurturing and sustainable relationship with our estate vineyard, which has made our Cabernet Sauvignon prized by numerous esteemed wineries. To make our own highly-rated, handcrafted wines, we have combined two generations of winegrowing experience with the same artisan attention to detail we have learned are essential parts of crafting world-class olive oils and red wine vinegars. Our goal is simple - by remaining true to time-honored traditions we strive to bring you the best the Napa Valley has to offer. We invite you to explore and savor these exceptional, limited-production wines.

We visited Round Pond on a recent weekend in Napa - the setting itself was great (you sit up on an outdoor terrace that is raised, so you have a good view of the entire valley). The tasting itself was quite nice - food paired with each of their wines, felt almost like a restaurant setting. The service itself was... More

By far our favorite place to go when we go to wine country. This was our 6th time and it will not be our last. If you have to make one tasting reservation in Napa this is the one to make. The views are to die for and so are the wines. They have quite a few tasting experiences so... More

Smaller winery - family owned. Wines were OK; however the fresh olive oils were fabulous! There is an Olive Mill on property and you can actually taste the freshness!! We did the IL Prazio lunch - tad expensive, but worth every penny!! Food was outstanding.

I thought this would be a standard oil tasting affair, with pieces of bread and dishes of oil. Instead, we were treated to a "three course" food sampling of little bites that utilized different olive oils and vinegars. I had noted we are vegetarian when we made the reservation, and they adjusted everything perfectly. The desserts were especially good (a... More

I will admit I was put off when I first entered the building as the initial vibe is very "fussy." However, once I walked upstairs and took a seat on the gorgeous patio, I felt instantly relaxed. The wines are very good (not amazing) but the food pairing was delicious -- I think the dishes served upstaged the wine quite... More

It was simple and elegant with every detail. The Introduction was informative and light. The pairing of oils and vinegars with bite size appetizers were unique to the eye and palate. Recipes were provided.

The highlight of our most recent Napa Valley visit was our wine and food experience at Round Pond Estate. I can't say enough good things about the beauty of the winery, its gorgeous setting smack dab in the middle of the valley, and it's super friendly and knowledgeable staff.....not to mention they have great wine at moderate prices!

This was our 4th or 5th trip to the Nap valley and this rates right up there with one of the best things we have ever done in the valley. Our brunch started with the chef taking us on a tour of his garden. We then went into the cellars for a barrel tasting and then back up to the... More

We made reservations at Round Pond Estate on morning for the barrel tasting. It was probably the best tour we have had in the Napa area! Our personal guide started with a visit to the farm garden and had us taste various fruits and veggies. Next to the vineyard, followed by the a walk through the wine making process, and... More
