#BestSipEver with Grgich Hills Estate
#BestSipEver Grape Stomping Experience
Join Wine Channel TV, winechanneltv.tv , wine lifestyle host Jessica Altieri with Violet Grgich, Vice President of Operations & Sales for Grgich Hills Estate. It’s a #bestsipever moment recalling the celebrated achievement that came in 1976 when a Chardonnay crafted by Miljenko “Mike” Grgich crafted for Chateau Montelena beat the very best wines in France in the now famous blind tasting in Paris.
Here is an overview that we love from Grgich Hills on what makes their wines so special:
“Grgich Hills Estate is an iconic Napa Valley winery, consistently producing world-class wines. Committed to natural winegrowing and sustainability, we farm five estate vineyards without artificial pesticides or herbicides, rely on wild yeast fermentation and use our passion and art to handcraft food-friendly, balanced and elegant wines. The portfolio of wines consist of three distinct tiers:
- Napa Valley Selections: Our most popular and accessible wines, these complex blends focus on Napa Valley’s best varieties from our five estate vineyards. These wines demonstrate Grgich Hill’s signature style: food-friendly, balanced and elegant.
- Miljenko’s Selections: Reserved primarily for our wine club members and winery visitors, these wines showcase the unique varietal characteristics from single vineyard blocks personally selected by Miljenko “Mike” Grgich. Clones, rootstock and farming are matched with the distinctive growing conditions of each site.
- Legacy Selections: Available primarily at our tasting room, these are our most exclusive and sought-after wines which focus on the varietals most associated with Mike Grgich’s legendary accomplishments, crafted from the oldest vines in our estate vineyards.”
