Grgich Hills Estate Story:
On Independence Day, 1977, Mike Grgich sat down with Austin Hills and his sister, Mary Lee Strebl, from the Hills Bros Coffee family, and the Grgich Hills winery was founded.
Today, GrgichHills Estate remains committed to making distinctive wines of elegance, consistency & longevity. Their pride & joy is their Chardonnay. Not surprising, since Mike Grgich was the winemaker at Chateau Montelena in 1973, whose Chardonnay won first place in the famous Paris tasting in 1976.
