Grgich Hills

One of Napa's leading wine estates, Grgich Hills maintains a healthy grip on its vibrant history and European heritage while giving a clear voice to the modern trends of technology and sustainability. Powered by 100% solar energy with an emphasis on growing organic and biodynamic grapes, this family-run winery welcomes guests to discover the passion and grape pursuits behind their dynamic wines.

Founder, Mike Grgich, snagged his first shot at the international wine spotlight back in the 70's when he made a rock-your-world Chardonnay that won a prestigious blind tasting competition in Paris, dubbed the Judgment of Paris. Mike Grgich continues to be one of the Napa Valley's winemaking legends, with his popular wines well-received by critics and consumers alike and shared credit for helping to discover California's fruit-driven red grape variety, Zinfandel has Croatian roots.
