Grgich Hills Estate: A Toast to Mike Grgich

Violet Grgich, Vice President for Sales and Marketing, Grgich Hills Estate 

In conversation with Sasha Paulsen, Features Editor, Napa Valley Register 

In the 40 years that have passed since he crafted the iconic Chateau Montelena Chardonnay that beat its French counterpart in the famous 1976 Judgment of Paris wine tasting competition, Miljenko "Mike" Grgich has garnered wide acclaim as an industry pioneer while his wines have been served at White House state dinners. Having grown up alongside her father in the winery, trying her hand at everything from the bottling line to the tasting room, Violet Ggrich will share her personal recollections on publishing her father’s newly released memoir, A Glass Full of Miracles, as well as the family's plans for the future. We will be enjoying a tasting of Grgich Hills Chardonnay and Zinfandel.
