Olive Oil Tasting
Aug 2021 • Couples
What an experience! We did the olive oil tasting and loved it. The grounds are just stunning. The host was wonderful. The olive oil was really good. The outside patio is so comfortable. The wine is very nice. We strolled through their well maintained fruit and vegetable garden. It’s a must do in my book.

Excellence all the way around....wines and a view that stand apart.
Jun 2021
Excellent wine, excellent views, excellent host!!! Our group of six sat on the patio and absolutely enjoyed every minute of our stay. Our host, Josh, was great. He was very knowledgeable about RP wines but also wine in general. We threw a lot of questions at him that he was able to quickly answer. For the quality, I feel their prices are reasonable. Their lowest level wine club is only two bottles....which is perfect for the first time Napa visitor. You're not roped in for $350-400 every quarter like a lot pf the other wineries. This was our first time to RP but it won't be our last.

What a gorgeous estate and wonderful experience. We only did a tasting (i wasnt aware they had a lunch pairing as well, still kicking myself for that!) but we definitely loved it . Our host, Juan was wonderful and very knowledgeable. The garden and grounds are sooooo beautiful. Makes you want to move to Napa! We will definitely be back to Round Pond, the wines were excellent.

Il Pranzo lunch pairing
May 2021
Outstanding private experience for the two of us! We started with a tour of the chef's garden, where we saw some of the veggies and herbs growing that we would soon taste. Chef Ryan presented our four lunch courses himself; they were delicious and perfectly paired with the wines, and it was so cool to be able to chat directly with the chef about each one. Stephanie was a great tour/wine guide, and overall we really enjoyed the whole experience on this beautiful property. If you're looking to treat yourself, Il Pranzo is the way to do it!

We enjoyed all of their wines with a great view served by a knowledgeable and friendly host, Samantha. A wonderful family story behind the vineyard and winery with a beautiful location to go along with it.

Very enjoyable experience
Jun 2020 • Friends
Location - in Rutherford , about 15 mins north of Napa town , easy to find .

Setting - pleasant spacious outdoor seating.

Wine and lunch experience- very good . The salad was probably the most unexciting course - just lettuce with dressing (not creative , but tasty ). The second course - some sort of vegetable medley- was very very fresh and tasty . The third course - grilled flank steak , was delicious as well . And of course , the wines were all very very good . I especially enjoyed the 2016 reserve Cab.

Service - very very good and friendly. Peggy was energetic and entertaining. Everyone there was super friendly and unpretentious.

Overall , a very enjoyable lunch and wine experience.

Gravel Tasting
Feb 2020
We visited on a beautiful afternoon for the Gravel Tasting. This particular experience allows guests to taste the winery’s top wines - even better than the reserves. Juan was a wonderful host, sharing stories about the valley and winery’s history. It’s quite a place! The views from the patio are stunning. The winery owns some 470 acres, most of which is planted with vines and olive trees. Olive oil is also available for purchase.
The stories behind the names of the gravel series wines are neat, too - ask about them even if you are enjoying one of the different tastings.
We did not join the wine club but did leave with a bottle of each of the gravel series we tasted to enjoy back home.
The winery offers wine pairing lunches and a brunch which would be fun to try in the future. Even enjoying wine on the patio with the gorgeous views is a treat.

Visited again and even better
Jan 2020
Brought two couples with us and this was the final winery tasting experience of our three day trip. Both joined that wine club after just a few tastings. I can not tell you how good these wines are. The tasting room and setting is beautiful. Sadly, on this visit the weather was cold and rainy, so we could not sit outside. The tasting experience, where they have a food pairing with each sample, is a great touch. I joined this wine club two years ago when I first visited and I personally think they make some of the very best wines I have ever tasted. I have been in multiple wine clubs over the years and tasted many high end wines. I would put any bottle of Round Pond up against any high end bottle out there.

One tip, if you can, pay to get a taste of a Gravel Series. It is worth it.
