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.

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. This visit did not disappoint us whatsoever. We had a wonderful wine tasting server who helped us learn quite a bit about the winery and the... More

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.

Great vineyard. The wines here are delicious and very different from the wines they produce in Croatia. Should not be missed

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

If you are looking for something to do prior to your scheduled tours, stop by Grgich Hills! They open at 9:30 for walk-in tastings. We loved their Zinfandel, Merlot and Cab - went home with a bottle of Cab. The staff is beyond friendly and attentive.
