Croatian-born founder and winemaker Miljenko “Mike” Grgich is the man behind the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that won the 1976 Judgement of Paris, putting Napa Valley on the map and earning Mike a reputation as one of the greatest winemakers in the world. On any given day, you may even meet this sprightly and charming legend in person while visiting.
Today, Grgich Hills is 100% estate grown certified organic and are committed to making distinctive wines with quality, consistency, and longevity. On the tour, take a look at their Rutherford Vineyard and get a behind the scenes look at the cellar before ending with a tasting.
All of our winery tours require moderate stair climbing and standing for extended periods. We encourage guests who may have difficulty performing these two activities to consider one of our dining journeys.
In the spirit of traditional rail seating, you may share a table with another party.
