Every Round Pond vinegar begins as a Round Pond wine. In this spirit, just like any fine winery, we harvest our Napa Valley grapes only when the fruit has reached optimal maturity on the vine, exhibiting an array of ripe, robust flavors. For weeks prior to picking, we walk the vineyards and sample the fruit to determine the correct balance of sugar, tannin, and acid. When the time is right, we harvest the grapes by hand and bring them immediately to the cellar for crushing.
From this foundation, we create our acclaimed red wine vinegars out of 100 percent estate-grown Rutherford grapes. Nothing else is ever added – nothing.
