A Growing Tradition: For nearly a quarter century, our family has been growing some of the finest winegrapes in the heart of the Napa Valley's acclaimed Rutherford region. Home to some of the most famous American vineyards, and some of the most coveted Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, Rutherford is widely recognized as one of the great viticultural regions of the world.

Over the years, we have cultivated a nurturing and sustainable relationship with our estate vineyard, which has made our Cabernet Sauvignon prized by numerous esteemed wineries. To make our own highly-rated, handcrafted wines, we have combined two generations of winegrowing experience with the same artisan attention to detail we have learned are essential parts of crafting world-class olive oils and red wine vinegars. Our goal is simple - by remaining true to time-honored traditions we strive to bring you the best the Napa Valley has to offer. We invite you to explore and savor these exceptional, limited-production wines.

We really enjoyed our tasting that featured paired bites with the wines. The wine was very well made and the food was expertly prepared. The pairings brought out the best in both the food and the wine. The setting overlooking the winery was beautiful and the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Excellent!

We went for a girls' weekend, and while we loved the outdoor seating area, the sprawling view of the vineyard, and the wine and food pairings, our male waiter was not happy to see us (I am not sure if he thought we were going to be a drunk bachelorette party, or if he was just having an off-day, but...

We went to a wine tasting here, and other reviews pretty much summed up our experience. Average wine, lovely employees, beautiful scenery. We learned a lot about their wine making, but only after people in the group asked questions. Nice gift options, particularly mini gift sets of their flavored olive oil. Not crowded so that is a definite plus.

We went here with friends on a recent stay and had a great time. The wines were really good and Nikki was very personable and lead a great tasting. We crossed paths with the winemaker which lead to a very special experience. The only thing that could made it better would be if the weather had been better (who knew... More

This vineyard doesn't have the greatest wine in Napa valley but it does have some picturesque scenery. If you're looking for something off the beating path, not so crowded, and to enjoy with friends this might be good for you.

One usually does not associate Napa with olives, but they grow well in the same soil as do grapes, and they complement one another. With reservations, you can have a private tasting with a delightful guide, paired with gourmet treats. While it may seem odd to sip olive oil, it was delightful and a unique experience. We usually do not... More

My wife and I recently toured this estate and did the Il Pranzo experience. It was fantastic. We toured the grounds and tasted the wines along with olive oils, vinegars, and produce grown on the grounds. This was definitely worth the time and we even joined the wine and food club. Well worth the visit!

Its seems Round Pond has some mixed reviews but our experience here was really nice. We didn't do food pairing or the olive oil tasting - we simply did a wine tasting and ended up buying a few bottles. The wine was very good and our instructor was super knowledgable. If I remember correctly, our person's name was Nicki -... More

One of my favorite wineries and I will keep coming back here year after year! One of the most beautiful terraces overlooking the winery in all of Napa. Great wines. The server could have been more engaging as to impart some knowledge and history on the wines and the winery. We were 14 in a group and outside of enjoying... More
