Wine lovers have made a pilgrimage to Grgich Hills Estate ever since Miljenko “Mike” Grgich crafted the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that beat the best of France at the famed 1976 Paris Tasting, allowing Mike to partner with Austin Hills to open our family-owned-and-operated winery in 1977. Nestled in the heart of Napa Valley, we’re an iconic winery that farms naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides. Our vineyards are certified organic and we use our passion and art to handcraft food-friendly, balanced and elegant wines.

  • We had an amazing experience tasting wine at Grgich Hills Estate! Jeremy was lovely; he provided us with so many interesting and fun facts about wine and the region - loved every minute, thank you (we're coming back later this afternoon for more!)! Being at this tasting makes me want to quit my job, move here, and learn everything I can about wine. And, also come to wine tastings daily ;)
  • We visited Grgich Hills as part of the Napa Valley Wine Train experience, and really enjoyed Jeremy's entertaining guided tasting. There was a nice tasting area set up under umbrellas in the warm sun, and Jeremy's mission to "educate and inebriate" was successful! The wines were delicious, particularly the rose and chardonnay. Loved hearing the story of the founding of the winery and the epic blind wine tasting showdown in France where American wines won over the French!
