In the early 1980s Bob and Jan MacDonnell bought their first parcel of land in the Napa Valley of what would one day become Round Pond Estate. From the beginning, they knew that this rich, fertile part of Rutherford had all the potential to produce world-class wines.
Round Pond Estate, owned and operated today by the second generation of the MacDonnell Family, is a 468-acre Rutherford farm and winery that specializes in the creation of pure, expressive wines from the heart of Napa Valley. Sustainability, people, place, and purpose are at the forefront of their daily operations and creation of some of the finest wines in the world.
As stated by the MacDonnell family, “John brings a wealth of experience through various winemaking positions in Napa and Sonoma counties. A graduate of the University of Colorado, Boulder, he has most recently been the Winemaker at Vine Cliff Winery. He has worked with Thomas Rivers Brown and held winemaking roles at notable wineries including Thomas George Estates, Littorai Wines in Sonoma and Rivers-Marie and Outpost Wines in Napa.”
Mattison’s Forty-One Restaurant is located at 7275 South Tamiami Trail, Sarasota 34231. Reservations 941-921-3400.
