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.

This winery is one of our favorites in Rutherford. The terrace area for tastings offers a great view of the valley to take in while you enjoy great wines from Round Pond. The staff here is very friendly and the atmosphere is a relaxing one, unlike some of the crazy production places in the area. I highly recommend checking this... More

A very interesting tour of Round Pond's olive mill operation. The tour itself is not long (and we were there in spring when nothing is in operation), but I learned a lot about how olive oil gets made. The tasting afterward was fantastic - I don't think I've ever had really fresh olive oil before - very different from my... More

Isn't it crazy to taste the difference between supermarket brand and fresh olive oil? It still surprises me whenever I enjoy our oil! Great to hear that you had a wonderful experience, as we actually just introduced this new experience in March. We would certainly love to have you back out in November and December when harvest is in full... More

We had the brunch experience yesterday and it was amazing! From our warm greeting by our host Dave to dessert after 5 fabulous courses by Chef Jamie it was a great way to start our week in Napa. We really enjoyed the tour of the garden with Jamie learning how he planned his menus from the seed catalogs. The brunch... More

The grounds were absolutely gorgeous. The wines were better than I expected. The zinc bar tasting was a good value and we tried several wines that were out of our price range but wonderful. Make sure you stop in and do the tasting at the Olive Oil press as well...great oils and vinegars to experience. 100+ year old olive trees.

I really think this is the best in Napa. Prices are not out of control. The winery/tasting area provides unbelievable views.

We had one of their wines at a restaurant and were excited to come here. I booked an upgraded tasting with appetizers for my husbands birthday with 5 others. I spent $300 and got sips of average wines and the advertised appeitzers were small specks of food. Very sad. The venue is beautiful.

A little different from the winery tastings, this was a tasting of delicious, fresh olive oil and wine vinegars. The tour itself is just a brief look at the trees and olive oil press, not an extensive affair, but the tasting included elegant little bite-sized dishes, enough to make a small lunch. All of them paired perfectly with the wonderful... More

Someone recommended this tour to us and we were so happy we went! Eric was so knowledgeable and pleasant. The pairings are wonderful and the wine is delicious. Go if you get a chance, the views are also worth it.

For a break from all the wine, visit Round Pond estate to sample some truly fantastic olive oil. This is a unique tasting and should not be missed.
