Fodor's Review

Sophisticated wines come from Round Pond, but the estate also produces premium olive oils, most from olives grown and crushed on the property. Informative olive-related seminars pass through the high-tech mill, followed by tastings of the aromatic oils, both alone and with house-made red-wine vinegars. For a full wine tasting, head across the street to the winery. The basic tasting includes a Sauvignon Blanc and Round Pond's well-rounded reds. The flagship Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has the structure and heft of the classic 1970s Rutherford Cabs, but acknowledges 21st-century palates with smoother, if still sturdy, tannins. The estate tasting pairs small morsels with the wines. The full Il Pranzo lunch incorporates products made and produce grown on-site, and there’s a deservedly popular Sunday brunch.
