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. To sample the wines, 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. Tastings and tours are by appointment only (24–48 hours in advance). The full Il Pranzo lunch incorporates products made and produce grown on-site, as does the well-attended Sunday brunch.
