Grgich Hills Estate

Founded in 1977 by Miljenko “Mike” Grgich and Austin Hills, Grgich Hills Estate is an iconic Napa Valley winery. Grgich first earned world-wide recognition when the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that he crafted won the 1976 Paris Tasting, beating some of the top French wines. Grgich Hills is committed to producing the finest estate-grown wines with a conscience, practicing organic and biodynamic farming and utilizing solar power.

Grigich Hills 2012 Chardonnay

Miljenko “Mike” Grgich has been called “The King of Chardonnay” since the winery began in 1977, and you can taste why in this classically-styled wine. We did not allow the Chardonnay to undergo malolactic fermentation, preserving its natural acidity. The wine displays crisp Fuji apple, honeydew melon and a hint of cashew nut aromas and flavors. Enjoy with fresh seafood, roasted chicken, grilled pork, and creamy cheeses.

Grigich Hills 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon

We fermented the grapes using only yeasts that naturally occur on the grapes and allowed the wine to gain flavors and color from extended skin contact. Each lot is aged separately for several months, and then blended to create a wine that is more complex than its individual parts. After blending, the wine spent another year and half in barrel to completely harmonize before bottling. Elegant and full bodied, the wine’s complex aromas of black berries, black licorice and a hint of cocoa powder are the perfect partner with grilled steak, roasted rack of lamb or venison stew.
