You'll discover this iconic winery's fascinating history when Violet Grgich leads this vertical tasting to celebrate Grgich Hills Estate's 40th anniversary this year.

This limited-production tasting focuses on the wines most associated with Miljenko "Mike" Grgich's legendary career, crafted from some of the oldest vines in our estate vineyards.

We'll showcase Old Wente clone Chardonnay planted more than 20 years ago, obtained from famed grower Larry Hyde and planted in our Carneros Vineyard. The Napa Valley is famed for Cabernet Sauvignon and this tasting allows you explore the differences between an aged wine from our Yountville and Rutherford vineyards, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from our Rutherford Vineyard and our Yountville Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon grown on vines more than a half century old, planted in 1959 to the Inglenook clone from what is now Francis Ford Coppola's Inglenook winery, on St. George rootstock in Yountville.
