Ryan MacDonnell Bracher, Oenophile
Ryan MacDonnell Bracher is an oenophile and owner of Round Pond Estate—a winery, vineyard & olive mill in Rutherford, California. Round Pond is a second generation family business, and she & her brother now run the show. The brother-sister duo grew up in Northern California, a region known for producing some of the freshest gourmet extra virgin olive oil. The olive oil is crafted from estate-grown olives, hand-harvested and cold-pressed to capture bright green Mediterranean flavors. Fresh and pure, this olive oil is perfect on salads, grilled vegetables and more, with infused flavors such as Blood Orange, Rosemary, Basil and Garlic. It can be purchased online here.
With a commitment to unparalleled quality and immense love for her magnificent vineyard, Ryan shares some of her father’s quirky advice on life and the recipe of the famous Round Pond Olive Oil Cake.
