This history of how Mike Grgich came from a tiny village in Croatia to become a world renowned winemaker and own his own winery in the Napa Valley is a fascinating one. It starts in Croatia – where he was born (the last of 11 children) in a tiny village, Desne, located inland on the Dalmation Coast. Founded in 1977, Napa Valley’s Grgich Hills Estate produces wine with a focus on organic grapes and sustainable farming practices. Cofounder Mike Grgich is best known for winning the 1976 Judgment of Paris wine tasting with his Château Montelena Chardonnay. Grgich Hills manages and owns over 360 planted vineyard acres in the Napa Valley with five fully owned vineyards ranging from American Canyon & Carneros in the south, Yountville, the ‘home’ vineyard in Rutherford and a vineyard north of Calistoga. In fact a small block of Zinfandel in their Calistoga vineyard dates from 1889. The Rutherford vineyard surrounds the winery and is planted almost entirely to Cabernet Sauvignon with just a small block of Petite Verdot. At one point Grgich Hills was the largest Biodynamically farmed winery and grape grower in the USA. They have refocused their efforts on organic farming and all their vineyards are now farmed this way.
