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 Hills is a great winery but they arent very generous with the pours considering the price. It was the least favorite of our winery tours.

Although we didn't find wine we liked, we still had a great time during the wine tasting and tour. The young man who led the tour knew his business and was a great storyteller. Historic venue that is a must see to add to any tour of Napa and Sonoma

Our wine tour started with this location. The gentleman driving our bus had more knowledge of the wine making process than the young lady giving the tour. She was personable but seemed new and was unable to answer questions posed by others on our tour. Personally did not care for the wine on the tasting, but they specialize in Chardonnay... More

We tasted the reserve wines and were not disappointed! Wonderful. Very nice and helpful staff. Beautiful small winery and vineyard. P.S- it is freezing in the tasting room, so bring a sweater.

We were going to visit on a Saturday afternoon (no appointment), but our driver said it would be too busy (we were looking for more of an intimate, educational experience). She said it would be hard to even make it to the tasting bar on a Saturday afternoon so she directed us elsewhere. Not sure if she was truthful as... More

Loved the story of Mr. Grgich and the hospitality the team showed us during our visit. The racking system they use is fascinating and worth visiting to see how they store their wine.

My wife and I came here because it fit into our tasting schedule nicely with the tour time. We were very happy with Marit, our tour guide. She was very knowledgable and had a lot of cool facts for us. The history of Grgich is very interesting also. The wines just weren't amazing, in our opinion but I definitely recommend... More

Thank you for your visit and we agree that Marit is a great guide to our winery. We were very disappointed that you thought our wines were “so-so.” For almost 40 years we’ve crafted wines that have won accolades from major wine publications and from wine lovers around the world. Was there a particular wine that you didn’t enjoy? We’d... More

A friend said this was a must visit. He was right. This was the wine maker involved in the movie Bottle Shock. Loved the tasting room, loved the wine, and our host was very knowledgable about the winery, production and the product.
