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.

Great wine and staff

The wines are wonderful. The port was amazing - a must try if you go! The tasting room was dark woods and welcoming as was the host. I just felt rushed through the experience. Go for the wines they are worth it.

While visiting Santa Clara I went to a tasting with my son. Myles was a wonderful host. Every wine was superb and Myles was very conversational and informative both about the wines we were tasting and the history of the winery itself. I cannot recommend it highly enough. There is no hard sell, just a welcoming ambiance and a selection... More

The winery staff took time to explain its wines and various vineyards. Took the time to allow us to sample the different wines and their harvest.

Napa tastings can be pricey these days. Grgich Hills estate has not followed this trend. And the wines are terrific. Worth a visit to understand how Napa's reputation is now world renowned, thanks in no small part to Mike Grgich's lifework.

Beautiful setting and grounds, good, professional service and knowledgeable staff. I loved their dessert wine. Next time I'm in the area I'd go back and spend more time here versus some other wineries we stopped at. Nice place for a little picnic.

My Husband and I and two other couples were touring a few wineries in Napa. Grgich Hills was on our list because we have been Grgich fans for years. The wine tasting experience was wonderful. The tasting was in a private room and they paired all the wines with cheeses, which was such a nice touch. We had the unique... More

We had not tried Ggrich Wines until having it at a restaurant about six months ago. My husband was so impressed with the wine that he did some research on it while I drove us home. He rad the history of the winery, specifically the Chardonnay and was convinced he had to join the wine club immediately. We went to... More

My wife and I recently visited our family in Napa, Ca. While there we went wine tasting of course, decided to try Grgich Hills Estate, so glad we did. Our server, Linda made the experience wonderful. Our favorite was the 2010 Merlot, excellent choice. We loved it. My wife, not much of a wine aficionado tried their unfiltered olive oil.... More
