Owner description: 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.

Did not taste the wine, purchased dipping olive oil. The 2nd floor deck was breathtaking. A must stop next time. Check out the beautiful antique truck parked in the entrance.

We came to this olive oil tour based on a recommendation and were not disappointed.
Very educational and an extremely clean facility. Wish we had known in advance the large portion of food to sample with our wine and olive oil. A very well done tour.

Recently visited Round Pond Vineyards for the Friday Night only Happy Hour on the Patio.
What a wonderful setting, great wine, snacks, and hospitality.

What an awesome experience. From the staff, and especially or tour guide, Ken, to the views, the gorgeous grounds and the luxurious wine tasting on the patio, with the awesome food paring. It was the best wine tasting experience we had the week we were in Napa Valley. We expected the wine train to be the place we would tell everyone about when we returned, and instead it was Round Pond Estates!!!
We felt we truly got our monies worth at Round Pond and couldn't say the same for the Wine train, although we are still glad we took the train.
Our recommendation to all going to Napa Valley is DON'T MISS Round Pond and the wine tasting and food paring on the patio, what a treat and both the wine and the food were excellent!

This place is a complete rip off. They serve you tiny portions of food with their small pourings of poor quality wine and then charge you $45 per head. Could not split pourings. No mention of cost until you're ready to leave. Do not go there. Avoid at all costs.
