Grgich Hills Estate is a family owned and operated winery dedicated to the art of winemaking. Winemaker Mike Grgich had gained international recognition at the historic Paris Wine Tasting of 1976 when the Chardonnay he produced at
Chateau Montelena won first prize among white wines. Mike then partnered with Austin Hills to open their family-owned-and-operated winery in 1977. Committed to natural winegrowing and sustainability,
they farm their five estate vineyards without artificial fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides
Grgich Hills Chardonnay Napa Valley 2010
This is the first vintage that Grgich Hills Chardonnay vineyards were certified organic and Biodynamic. Beautifully balanced between acid, flavors and body, this Chardonnay displays notes of lemon zest, flowers and honey with a hint of crushed stones. Let the wine’s elegance shine by matching it with simple preparations of baked halibut, roasted chicken, grilled shrimp or pork, or pasta with a light cream sauce.

Grgich Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Grgich Hills Yountville vineyard, which they began farming biodynamically in 2003, supplies the main body of their Napa Valley blend. Each lot is aged separately for several months and then blended to create a wine that is more complex than the individual parts. After blending, the wine spent another year and a half in barrel to completely harmonize before bottling. Nicely balanced between fruit and tannin, this elegant wine is rich with aromas of black cherry, crushed rose petals and cocoa powder. This full bodied wine goes well with roasted meats, grilled Portobello mushrooms or a firm cow’s milk cheese such as Edam or Gouda.
