Our Story

Miljenko “Mike” Grgich first gained international recognition at the celebrated “Paris Tasting” of 1976. The historic blind tasting, a panel of eminent French judges swirled, sniffed, and sipped an array of the fabled white Burgundies of France and a small sampling of upstart Chardonnays from the Napa Valley. As a result, when their scores were tallied, the French judges were shocked: they had chosen the 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay, crafted by Mike Grgich, as the finest white wine in the world!  This stunned the international wine establishment and consequently earned Mike a reputation as one of the greatest winemakers in the world.
