Grgich Hills Estate

Petit Verdot
Yountville

10 cases produced

In 2009, Mike Grgich celebrated 51 years of winemaking in Napa Valley! To mark this more than half century of winemaking excellence, we highlighted the small block of Petit Verdot in our certified organic and Biodynamic® Yountville Vineyard. To add even more complexity, we added a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon from vines that are even older than the winery: they were planted in 1959.


Aging Process

Three weeks in stainless steel tanks for fermentation, then aged in 60 gal. French barrels (30% new) for 20 months.
