When: Thursday, June 28 6-7:45 PM
In 1954, with little more than the clothes on his back and a dream to make wine in a new country, Miljenko "Mike" Grgich traveled from his native country, the former Yugoslavia, and stepped off a bus into Napa Valley and...a legend was born.
After working at several wineries, Mike Grgich found fame in 1976 when he was serving as winemaker for Chateau Montelena. His 1973 Chardonnay took top honors (among whites and reds!) at the famed wine competition, Judgment of Paris, which launched California wine into preeminence.
Not long after, his success enabled him to set up his own stellar winery, Grgich Hills Estates. And to this day, at the age of 95, Mike Grgich is still going strong! The winery is committed to making wines that are elegant, balanced, and with real ageing potential. His wines have been served by such illustrious world leaders as Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II, and Francois Mitterand. It's no surprise that Mike Grgich, a true Napa pioneer, was inducted into the the Vintners Hall of Fame in 2008.
This Thursday evening, you too will get to try the lovely Grgich Hills wines; they will be available for purchase and special pricing will be available.
