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.

This winery was one of the only ones I visited in Napa that gave us a little history about the vineyard along with a lesson in how wine is produced with our tasting. The bartender brought bottles with us as she took us through the estate and showed us the machines used in harvesting, de-stemming the grapes, and the barrel... More

$40 per person for a tasting - waived if you spend $100. Always excellent wines. Beautiful patio area to enjoy wine and the birds singing. Help was good too!

With thick traffic ,on a busy Friday, we were running out of time to stop at a tasting room. We had driven up to Napa from Santa Cruz, taking our sweet time...make sure if you plan on tasting wine (in Napa) you plan an early day. Tasting rooms close @ 4 PM this time of year. We wandered into Grgich.... More

Most of their wine is very good, but a little bit pricey. Tasting fee is waived with the purchase of two bottles. I purchased the Zinfandel and Merlot. Very good service. Very popular winery located on the Highway 29.

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.
