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.

Grgich Hills is one of our favorite wineries in the Napa Valley! We did the seated tasting with Suzanne as our host. She was very attentive and knowledgable and made the experience very fun! The wines are amazing and were nicely paired cheese. Highly recommended!

Our week-long visit to Napa resulted in many great visits but the one to Grgich Hills Estate Winery was incredible. Don't visit Napa without a visit to Grgich and this is the place where you might want to spend a few more dollars to sample more wines. The Grgich history is second to none. I'm not telling the story here... More

We visited Grgich Hills with good friends for now the second time, and we had a wonderful tasting experience with Linda. We enjoyed a tour of the facility and learned a great deal from Linda on the history of Grgich and the process of making wines "Mike's way." We returned to a private room for a seated tasting of a...

We visited Grgich Hills Estate in February and had a marvelous time! We visited for the first time last fall during harvest and spent time in the tasting room. It was wonderful, but we knew we wanted to come back to learn and experience more. Fast forward to February and we took the time to enjoy the Unforgettable Tour with... More

Grgich has a great history and it's important to recognize what Mike did for Napa in the 70s. That history, however, doesn't mean that stopping here for a taste is worthwhile. On our most recent visit here, we all agreed that Grgich isn't really special anymore -- that golden era has long past. It's now a Napa tourist trap designed... More

Dear Richard S. Thank you for your visit and taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor. We appreciate your love for our Chardonnay and Cabernet. We're afraid we don't make a port but we make a great late harvest wine, Violetta, for dessert, which is what you may be thinking of when you mention our port. We hope to... More

We stopped in to Grgich after reading reviews about a few wine varieties we enjoy. When we walked in it was hard to get anyone's attention. We waited patiently to be directed to a bar that wasn't being used. It took a long time before we actually got our 1st tasting. A party bus came in behind us which seem... More
