Grgich Hills Estate

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 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that 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.

Nestled in the heart of Napa Valley, we are open daily 9:30am to 4:30pm to taste our current releases and you might even meet the charming Mike Grgich. We are a family-friendly winery that welcomes walk-in visitors in our main tasting room where you are surrounded by oak barrels and the seductive aromas of wine in various stages of development.

Join us at the tasting bar for a flight of our five current release Napa Valley wines for $20 per person or the featured Miljenko’s Flight for $40 per person

You can get a real feel for winemaking by stomping grapes, which is offered daily during harvest only. Learn about our sustainable winegrowing with a variety of tours and tastings—advance reservations required. We can also customize an unforgettable experience with everything from a private tasting for your group to gourmet luncheons and dinners overlooking our vines.
