We are humbled and grateful for the awesome things that are being said about our unique experiences. We love to share the magic of this beautiful estate with our guests, and truly want everyone to feel like a part of the family. With thanks, we share what a few esteemed publications are saying about our exceptional tasting experiences and why a visit to Round Pond is so remarkable!
WINERY ESTATE TASTING
$65 per person
"Round Pond’s expansive terrace overlooking the vineyards takes its cues from Tuscany, but the wines and house pressed olive oils are pure California. Our favorite is the Estate Tasting, a one-hour seated tasting (on the terrace) for four wines paired with fresh-from-the-garden inspired appetizers."
"The most basic of the tastings gives you a chance to sample three wines paired with appetizers in one of Napa's most modern and chic tasting rooms. An outdoor terrace with sweeping views overlooking the valley is so relaxing a spot that you won't want to leave."
"Try their wines paired with small bites using estate ingredients on their terrace, or stop by on the first Friday of the month to take in the sunset with a bottle."
"For more than two decades, the premium grapes from Round Pond's 350-acre estate were sold to Napa wineries such as Caymus. Today, Round Pond also makes its own private label wines which can be had at its magnificent second story tasting room, with panoramic views of the Mayacamas Mountains."
$175 per person
"This Rutherford wine producer celebrates the bounty of its expansive on-site gardens with their four-hour Garden to Table Brunch each Sunday. The experience begins with a tour of the gardens, followed by a cooking demonstration and wine pairing. Round Pond also makes olive oil and red wine vinegar onsite."
Named One of the Best Winery Restaurants in America by F&W: "Offering a range of tastings across the elegant property, Round Pond also excels on the culinary front. The weekend Garden to Table Sunday brunch is a four-hour experience including a garden tour, cooking demo, and a full brunch with wine!"
"If you are looking for an amazing brunch experience look no further than Round Pond, a vineyard tucked away behind a palm-tree lined grand driveway that rivals the one in Jurassic Park!"
OLIVE MILL TASTING
$50 per person
"Turning olives into oil at Round Pond is a mix of Old World charm and high-tech-efficiency. With its gleaming stainless steel equipment, the impeccably clean olive mill resembles an industrial kitchen, and smells of citrus."
"If you're pressed for time you can do the "Splash and Dash" tasting, enjoying olive oils and the estate's red wine vinegars. For a more leisurely approach, take a tour and tasting, by appointment."
"No olive spends more than 45 minutes traveling from tree to mill, and that freshness is evident in the little blue glasses of oil you'll be asked to swallow straight, as olive oil judges do in Italy."
"The Mill Tasting at Round Pond Estate is the perfect sensory activity to balance a day of winery hopping. The immersive, hour-long experience is equal parts education and indulgence."
