Round Pond Estate

Round Pond Experience: Luncheon and Tastings

Round Pond Estate
875 Rutherford Road, Rutherford CA 94573

Sunday, August 20th starting at 12:00 noon
Cost: Members $162 per person. Guests $172.

Round Pond is a family-owned and operated estate designed around their vineyards, gardens and orchards. Its worthy to note that Food & Wine Magazine has recognized Round Pond Estate as one of the best Winery Restaurants in America. In the valley it is recognized as a purveyor of fine olive oils and moderately priced, drinkable wines.

Our Round Pond Experience begins at noon at the Winery, with a Welcome Splash of wine, followed by a brief guided tour of the facility. We will see the Olive Groves and Vineyards, Culinary Gardens, and Round Pond Chickens (possibly to be enjoyed later).

After the Tour, we will be seated in the Arbor, shaded from the Sun to taste at least three different olive oils and some vinegars hosted by a Round Pond Olive Oil educator. We may have the opportunity to custom prepare our salad dressing for our luncheon salad which will be served after the tasting.

Below is Round Pond's current 5-course Luncheon Menu. Wines will be paired with our meal. Note that the Chef may choose to make substitutions to this menu based on the seasonal availability of ingredients.

After Lunch we will be free to enjoy the grounds, purchase wine, and explore the benefits of joining their Wine Club. As Round Pond is a relatively small Winery, wine purchases will only be discounted for Wine Club members.

It should be noted that Round Pond typically charges $175 plus tax ($189) per person for their Experience. They are making this private tour and luncheon available to us for a reduced price of $150 plus tax ($162) per person. We are charging members our cost for the event.

Our Experience officially ends at 2:30 PM.
