San Francisco Chronicle features RP on front page of Wine section

January 2, 2009: Round Pond was honored to be featured on the front page of the Wine section in the San Francisco Chronicle. 

In an excerpt, the Chronicle wrote:

“With other goods like vinegar and citrus syrup, acres of biodynamic gardens yielding produce for wine pairings and tasting lunches, and solid vintages of estate Cabernet Sauvignon that drink as if double their worth – not to mention an intriguing, rare Nebbiolo – the second generation of this grapegrowing family has quietly created in the span of a few short years, a burgeoning business that’s vastly different from their Wine Country neighbors.”

Men's Best Life - "World Class Olive Oil Isn't Always Imported"

Of Round Pond, the magazine says "The Napa Valley estate Round Pond may devote 30 times more acreage to wine grapes than olives, but it takes its oil seriously. Five Italian cultivars are individually picked at their ripest, pressed separately at Round Pond's two ton stone mill, and then blended and stored inside Nitrogen-cooled tanks until bottled. These are bold, Tuscan-style olives with an herbacious kick that lends the blended oil a grassy nose and spicy aftertaste."
