About the Winery
From the vineyard to the winery, great winemaking reflects an intimate, personal touch. This touch can be seen in the way our estate vines are pruned to allow the sun to dapple the grapes, or in our careful selection of new oak from different forests in France. In this spirit, we believe in the importance of controlling every step of the winemaking process to ensure consistently wonderful wines with each new vintage.
About the Garden
After years of producing organic fruits and vegetables in the MacDonnell family garden, we’ve decided to bring this tradition to the Round Pond Winery. As such, now open to our guests is our 200’ x 50’ biodynamic vegetable garden behind the winery crush pad.
