Round Pond Estate

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. To do just that, we began the construction of a new state-of-the-art winery in 2005.

Completed in July of 2007, our winery and hospitality facility embodies the realization of a longtime dream for our family. Located on our Rutherford estate, the winery is surrounded by our vineyards, allowing the fruit to arrive cool and in pristine condition at harvest. At the winery, these exceptional grapes benefit from a careful blend of artisan techniques and cutting-edge technology. This approach includes hand-sorting the grapes twice, and fermenting and aging specific vineyard blocks individually to maintain their distinctive character. To further ensure quality, this time and labor-intensive approach benefits from the use of select technologies such as our winery’s custom-built fermentors, which continuously regulate temperatures to the ideal level.

About the Olive Mill
At Round Pond we understand that freshness is fundamental to making truly superior olive oil. That is why we constructed our very own olive oil mill. The truth is, the difference between everyday olive oil and oil freshly pressed in our mill is as obvious as the difference between orange juice from a carton and the vibrant flavor of fresh oranges squeezed into a waiting glass.
