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.

Friendly Staff and Great Wine!

Another piece of Napa History and many of the employees love to educate those who are open to learning the history. Great wine in a small cozy environment.

many times here and will keep coming back. the wines are often overlooked, but might be one of the top-mid tier vineyards in the valley. knowledgable and friendly in their approach make s you wan tot ship 3 cases home and at 1 penny per case at 3 cases in the wine club, it is a great bargain. highly recommend.

Being first time visitors to the Napa Valley, we thought it would be fun to see the majority of the valley by a leisurely train ride. The trian was comfortable, the food good and over-all what we expected. However, we were disappointed with our stop at Grgich Hills Estate. From the moment we got off the train I felt we... More

My father-in-law was a die-hard fan of Grgich Hills wines, the vintage that he pulled out for special occasions and special guests, and I always appreciated the extraordinary quality of both their whites and reds. Going to the estate for a wine tasting was a long-standing goal, so I am happy to report my pilgrimage was everything I had hoped... More

We had a great time at Grgrich Hills Winery. We opened the place at 9:30am and had the best experience. Our wine guide was very knowledgeable and told us the story about the winemaker. It really resonated with us and is something we will not forget. The outside grounds are beautiful and it has a very rustic feel on the... More

I have been familiar with Grgich Hills wines but hadn't tried them for quite some time. So wanted to take advantage of their wine tasting experience to remind myself about what they are about.

We dropped in at Grgich and had a fantastic experience. First wine stop on our trip to Napa. The expert was knowledgable and welcoming and answered all of our questions. She gave a brief history of the place as she poured and it was a leisurely and fun time.

There are so many good wineries in the area that this just seemed average although it probably deserves a higher rating. The two of us had different opinions on the wine but found them acceptable although we did not buy
