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 had the distinct pleasure of sitting in a private tasting with Muiris Griffin, Round Pond's esteemed winemaker. He was an incredible wealth of information but never made us feel uninformed.

We took a tour and tasting here and it was simply amazing! Cameron, our wine educator, was so knowledgeable and friendly and so was the rest of the staff. They really took care of us. This is a MUST for anyone traveling to Napa in search of Cabernet!

We have been to many wineries, but this was one of our favorites. The venue requires a reservation. The estate produces choice wines, superb fresh olive oils and gourmet vinegars. Chris walked us through the rich family history and taught us much about wine and olive oil production. Beautiful place!

On a recent girls trip to Napa, our first stop was Round Pond Estate in Rutherford for their II Pranzo lunch tour and tasting. Yes a reservation is required, but that is true with alot of wineries in Napa Valley. Upon arrival we were greeted by Savannah who served us sauvignon blanc while we waited in the beautiful common area.... More

This winery was recommended to us by a friend. You need a reservation, and the receptionist who took our phone reservation had difficulty remembering the time of our reservation, and needed to be reminded several times.The wine tasting room is impressive and you are seated in comfortable chairs.

We went to the Round Pond yearly olive oil and holiday lunch. As always, it was stellar. In the morning, we did olive oil tasting. This time of year (December) is also when the olive oil mill is in full production. It is interesting to watch the olive oil being made. We tasted the various olive oils with nice food... More

As per most smaller Napa wineries, booking is absolutely essential. This winery is beautiful with an amazing raised deck with great views. Each group has its own "personal guide" who spends time with you, gives you a history of the estate, takes you through the wines (which were very impressive) and the wines are accompanied with bite size eats that...
