Winery and Olive Mill in Rutherford, California

Exclusive wine experiences at Round Pond Estate in Napa Valley, USA

Round Pond Estate, owned and operated today by the second generation of the MacDonnell family, is a highly sought-after and respected ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon producer, specializing in the creation of pure, expressive wines, artisan foods,and unforgettable experiences.

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.

In addition to being the perfect home for our small-lot winemaking, our winery is also a place where we can share our excellent wines in a beautiful and comfortable setting. With a lovely second-story tasting lounge and a covered terrace offering panoramic views of the vineyards and the Mayacamas Mountains, our winery makes an ideal destination in the heart of the Napa Valley. We invite you to explore our delicious tour and tasting options!
