TASTE THE LEGACY!! AFFORDABLE LUXURY
Grgich Hills Estate:
Mike Grgich was originally sought after for his Cabernet Sauvignon winemaking expertise. He was the winemaker of the 1969 Cabernet Sauvignon that put Robert Mondavi on the map. Later he was recruited by Chateau Montelena, again for his Cabernet Sauvignon expertise. Shortly after joining Chateau Montelena, Mike gained international recognition at the celebrated "Paris Tasting" of 1976 in which a panel of eminent French judges evaluated an array of renowned French wines and a small sampling of upstarts from the Napa Valley. When the results were in, the French judges were shocked: they had chosen Mike’s 1973 Cht. Montelena Chardonnay as the finest white wine in the world! The results stunned the international wine establishment and immediately earned Mike Grgich a reputation as one of the greatest winemakers in the world.
