Grgich Hills Cellar1829 St. Helena Hwy, Rutherford CA 94573
Miljenko “Mike” Grgich first gained international recognition at the celebrated “Paris Tasting” of 1976. Then, in a now-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. When their scores were tallied, the French judges were shocked: they had chosen Mike’s 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay as the finest white wine in the world. Mon Dieu! The results stunned the international wine establishment and immediately earned Mike a reputation as one of the greatest winemakers in the world. (707) 963-2784. Open Everyday 9:30AM-4:30PM.

Venge Vineyards4708 Silverado Trail North. Calistoga CA
The Venge (ven-ghee) family has farmed vitis viniferra varieties in Napa Valley for nearly a half-century. It is a journey that began when Knud Venge migrated from Denmark to the United States in the early 1900’s. Knud's son, Per Venge, found his passion in the wine and spirits industry and started Vencom Imports, focusing on the importation of Western European fine wines and spirits. It was Per's son, Nils Venge, who left the family business in the 1960's with a vision to study viticulture at UC Davis and establish the family namesake as an icon within the winegrowing community. Nestled into the eastern foothills of the Pallisades Mountain range, we offer a private, non-public tasting retreat from the masses. We invite you to sit back and enjoy a relaxed tasting with us. Our seated tastings are private and held at our winery ranch house overlooking the valley. Each tasting features wines that are allocated and seats a maximum of six guests per reservation.
