About Us

Round Pond Estate, owned and operated today by the second generation of the MacDonnell family, is a Rutherford farm and winery that specializes in the creation of pure, expressive wines, artisan foods, and unforgettable experiences—all from the heart of Napa Valley. In addition to a state-of-the-art winemaking facility and 366 acres of vineyards, the estate includes 5 acres of organic gardens, 12 acres of olive orchards, and one of only two olive mills in the region. The high quality Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, artisan olive oils, red wine vinegars, and flavorful citrus syrups of Round Pond Estate reflect the MacDonnell family’s dedication to sustainable farming and production. The MacDonnell family has made their farm-to-table philosophy a way of life, and together with their Estate Chef and Master Gardener, the family enjoys nothing more than sharing the bounty of the farm with guests. The MacDonnell's are excited to offer extensive visitor programs that provide a range of inviting “live like a local” experiences.
