Overview
More
Grgich Hills Estate is an iconic Napa Valley winery, consistently producing world-class wines. Vintner Hall of Fame inductee Miljenko "Mike" Grgich first earned world-wide recognition when the Chardonnay he crafted won the 1976 Paris Tasting, beating the best of France. Mike then partnered with Austin Hills to open their family-owned-and-operated winery in 1977. Committed to natural winegrowing and sustainability, we farm our five estate vineyards without artificial fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides, rely on wild yeast fermentation and use our passion and art to handcraft food-friendly, balanced and elegant wines.

Grgich is always on our list because of their excellent service and hospitality. Our last visit we again asked for Linda and were amazed by her knowledge and attention to detail. Thanks!

If you’ve seen Bottleshock or read about the 1976 Judgement of Paris, then you know about Mike Grgich, who was the winemaker behind Chateau Montelena’s winning Chardonnay. He founded his own winery and it is here where the Famiglia Tour of the Napa Valley Wine...More

Having craved many of Grgich's whites for a long time, I wanted to explore more of the reds this go round. Their desire to build complex, well integrated wines is obvious with any wine your drink from them. Having sampled the 2014's I was thrilled...More
