Round Pond Estate, owned and operated today by the second generation of our family, is a 468 acre Rutherford farm and winery that specializes in the creation of pure, expressive wines, artisan foods and unforgettable experiences—all from the heart of Napa Valley. In addition to a state-of-the-art winemaking facility and 362 acres of Rutherford vineyards, our estate includes 5 acres of gardens, 12 acres of olive orchards, and one of only two olive mills in the region. The family also owns a special 10 acre vineyard in the famed Oakville bench.
Our Rutherford estate spans 362 acres of vineyards, primarily planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. With over 30 years and two generations of winegrowing experience, we are farmers first and believe great wine starts in the vineyards. To promote natural balance and vineyard health, we have dedicated ourselves to the principles of sustainable winegrowing.
Since purchasing our first Rutherford vineyard here in 1983, our approach to sustainable winegrowing has made our Cabernet Sauvignon prized by numerous esteemed wineries. Today, our vineyard represents 12% of all Cabernet Sauvignon grown in Rutherford, and we continue to sell the vast majority of our grapes to over 20 wineries in the Napa Valley.
In 2002, our family made its first barrel of estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Crafted from select blocks of our best estate vineyards, our wines embody the essence of a terroir-inspired, Napa Valley winemaking philosophy. Today, as winemakers our goal is simple - to allow each wine to find its own expressive voice.
