General Information

HISTORY

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.

GRAPE GROWING

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.

WINEMAKING

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.

Sales Tools

  • This California Sauvignon Blanc is focused on purity of fruit; it is a flip book of the varietal as it ripens on our Rutherford estate in the heart of Napa Valley. We capture different snapshots of the grape’s character by making three picking passes during harvest. This provides the wine with multiple layers of fruit starting with zesty citrus, moving to stone fruits, progressing to melons, and finishing with a hint of exotic tropical fruits. Each of these aromatic profiles represents the different ripeness levels at which the clusters were picked.

  • A true reflection of that signature Rutherford dust, this Cabernet Sauvignon embodies an old world meets new world style. The Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is handcrafted entirely from our Rutherford estate, sourcing from the top 5% off the property. Exhibiting rich characteristics of dark complex fruits, minerality, and balanced intensity, the layers of this wine truly reflect the terroir of our vineyards.
