Our father, Bob MacDonnell spent many summers as a child relaxing and camping at West Point’s recreation area in New York. Named Round Pond, this source of idyllic youthful memories became the inspiration for our family’s Napa Valley home and winery.
Over the years, we have cultivated a nurturing and sustainable relationship with our estate vineyard combining two generations of winegrowing experience. Our approach 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 from Round Pond Estate.
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec. This is a beautiful Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. Layers of gorgeous fruit and some kirsch liqueur followed by blacker currants and plums jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purplecolored wine. Fullbodied, layered and rich, this provocative wine is actually a great value considering its stunning quality. Drink it over the next 20 years". 94 points, Robert Parker, August 2016
