Round Pond Estate
Bob and Jan MacDonnell purchased their first parcel of Napa Valley land in 1980 and today own over 400 acres, all in the Rutherford AVA. By 1986, they were producing primarily Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that they sold to some of the valley’s most famous wineries including Beaulieu, Grgich Hills, Freemark Abbey, Franciscan, and others. From these early wines made in nearby wineries, the family learned that winemaking begins in the vineyard and that a commitment to produce top quality wines must include an integrated viticultural and winemaking program.
In 2001, Miles and Ryan MacDonnell, now managing Round Pond, produced their first wine from one of their favorite Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard blocks. The success of their first vintage, and their second generation energy and dedication to producing world-class wines, has resulted in the construction of their new, state-of-the-art winery.
Opened in July of 2007, our new winery is the realization of a longtime dream for us here at Round Pond. In addition to offering a state-of-the-art home for our small-lot winemaking, our estate winery is also a place where we can share our exceptional wines in a beautiful and comfortable setting. Whether you’re touring the property, savoring the wines in our lovely tasting room, or simply lingering to take in the view from our second story terrace, our winery offers a delightful experience in the heart of wine country. We invite you to visit Round Pond Winery, and explore our delicious tour and tasting options!
