Round Pond Estate, owned and operated today by the MacDonnell family, comprises 366 acres planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc in the heart of Napa Valley’s Rutherford appellation. Starting out as growers in 1983, the MacDonnells began making wine in 2002.  In 2007, they opened a winemaking facility and tasting room.  In 2009, the family started working with acclaimed consulting winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown.  Today, Round Pond wines are sold at top restaurants and retailers nationwide and receive acclaim from critics.  The winery’s flagship 2012 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon ($60) was recently awarded 93 points by The Wine Advocate and heralded by Robert Parker as “Gorgeous… with an almost Margaux-like delicacy.” In December 2014, the winery made The Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines being the only domestic Sauvignon Blanc on the list with their 2013 Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc.

In addition to its selection of limited, high quality Rutherford wines including Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, Round Pond epitomizes the garden-to-table Napa Valley lifestyle by also producing estate olive oils, red wine vinegars and fruit syrups. The family’s olive mill, one of only two operating in the Napa Valley, is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, yet blending is done by hand in small lots to maintain the highest levels of freshness and quality.

Round Pond Estate is located at 875 Rutherford Road in Rutherford and is open for tastings by appointment. Contact the winery at 888.302.2575, 707.302.2575 or [email protected]
