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.

This was our last stop in Napa, and what a fun way to end that part of our vacation! As you will note in their website, $25.00 gets you a T-shirt with your grape-stained footprints on it, a glass of very delicious Grgich wine --...More

We stopped in to this winery for a walk in tasting between scheduled tastings. Impressive wines and a wonderful history. This is well worth a stop if you enjoy high quality whites and reds.

Easily the most cookie cutter factory in the valley. Freezing inside. The staff treated is like cargo so we left before any tasting.

Sorry but we are not allowed to sell food as part of our permit. We do offer wine and cheese pairings as part of an educational seminar. Call us at the winery @707-963-2784 for more details.
