The gardens at Rynwood, originally designed by Ellen Shipman were replanted in 1982 by Innocenti & Webel for minimum care. Today the gardens feature 45 acres of vineyard, started in 1982, along with formal lawn terraces. A reflecting pool is approached by descending steps in Lutyens' style from the upper lawn terrace.
