About This Winery
Round Pond Estate is located in the acclaimed Rutherford region of Napa Valley, California. It is a family-owned and operated estate oriented around its world-class vineyards, gardens, and orchards. Renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon, Round Pond Estate also produces artisan olive oils from its mill and red wine vinegar.
All of their fruit is organically or sustainably farmed and hand-harvested. For nearly a quarter-century, the owner’s family has been growing some of the finest wine grapes in the heart of the Rutherford region, which is recognized as one of the great viticultural regions of the world.
The winery is gorgeous, surrounded by grapevines pruned to let the sunlight dapple elegantly through their leaves. There are many rooms for tasting and dining. The most stunning is the outdoor patio, which looks out on the panoramic view of the Mavacamas Mountains. There is a beautifully furnished dining table as well as lounge chairs and couches on the terrace. These all draw your focus to the outdoor fireplace.
