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.

“Beautiful vineyard - relaxing tasting - just ok wine”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Appointment only - Round Pond was rather difficult to book via phone but we finally connected and scheduled a tasting/food pairing. The tasting was very relaxed and we enjoyed the views from the upstairs/outside tasting area. The 3 wines sampled were 'ok' - the highlight of Round Pond is the outdoor living room, we enjoyed an amazing sunny day!

“Enjoyed our tasting”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

We really enjoyed our afternoon at Round Pond. The scenery was beautiful. The mustard seeds were in bloom between the vines & the fire pit was going as the sun sank in the afternoon sky. So romantic! I can only imagine how green & lush it must look later in the year! We particularly loved the casual vibe of the place, and the food pairings/bites were an extra special touch.

“A new producer with great wines”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

I was reading a Wine Spectator and saw a review for this winery's cab with a very high score. Round Pond only recently began producing its own wines (2002 I think). Previously the grapes were sold to other wineries. The have a lovely building that houses the production facility and tasting room. The tasting room is upstairs and has a lovely terrace with views of the entire Napa valley. We chose a tasting that had an hor d'oeuvre that accompanied each flight. Our hostess, Kelly, was very pleasant and informative. I believe they also serve lunch and dinner. Next time I'll try that.

“Beautiful setting, great food and wine”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

A more expensive tasting set up, but well worth it. A gorgeous patio that is set up for you when you walk in. You taste three wines, and then you are brought food pairings for each. The beef stew is just incredible and made the 09 Cab trickle down my throat like velvet. Definitely a place to visit or to take somebody you want to impress.
