Grgich Hills Estate

Miljenko’s 90th Vintage

Los Carneros

10 cases produced

We’re celebrating the 90th birthday of Miljenko “Mike” Grgich this year with a special Chardonnay in honor of the Paris Tasting, when the Chardonnay he crafted beat the best of France and revolutionized the wine world! To commemorate Mike’s ninth decade we created this exquisite Chardonnay of Old Wente clone grapes, which are grown without artificial fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides, and rely on wild yeast fermentation. We selected from our favorite lots to create this Premiere offering, and we think it shows why Mike Grgich is in the Vintner Hall of Fame.

Aging Process

12 months in French oak (70% new) then 6 months in stainless steel tanks.
