We went to Grgich knowing that they made excellent Chardonay. What the surprise was that they make a very tasty Fume Blanc and outstanding Zin's and Cabernet's.

Great wines and friendly service. The Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay were well made but had lots of Sulphur. 2015 Merlot had nice structure and good upfront fruit. 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon was excellent. Free tasting for military.

We stayed there a little over an hour. Tasting the wines and learning of Mike Grgich history in Bottle Shock ( beating all French wines in blind taste test 20+ years ago !) Hope you enjoy!

Sorry but we are not allowed to sell food as part of our permit. We do offer wine and cheese pairings as part of an educational seminar. Call us at the winery @707-963-2784 for more details.
