April is officially Grgich Hills month at Vendome. Therefore All of the Grgich Hills lineup will be 20% off their regular price. These prices will run for the entire month of April. In addition, there’s going to be a Grgich Hills tasting on Thursday April 6th. David Gary of Grgich will be here to pour. Yes there will be pens, lapel pins, maps, etc., but the real star are the wines themselves. Please let me refresh your memory. Grgich is the class of Napa. Every wine is completely varietal specific.
Wines at April 6 tasting
We will be tasting 5 (Hopefully 6 of their great offerings).
Fume Blanc– California white wines don’t have enough acid? You haven’t tasted Grgich Fume, perfectly balanced and totally unique. They really do “own” this category.
Chardonnay– Grgich has always elevated Napa Chardonnay. Tried them all and been bored? Grgich has real fruit. After trying this wine, you’ll wonder why other producers can’t seem to get it right.
40th Anniversary Chardonnay– Noteworthy new offering from Grgich. We hope to have it in time. Can’t wait to try it. A new offering from Grgich is a real event.
All of the Reds will be tasted:
Sometimes preconceived notions are correct. We all know what these wines are supposed to taste like, but for some reason they all seem to taste like each other. This is frustrating and disappointing considering the high price of Napa Wines.
Not So with Grgich Hills. Each wine is true to it’s nature. You will be amazed by how easy it is to identify each of the wines. The reds have always been what others aspire to be. Also, with Grgich there is no such thing as a bad vintage, year after year their wines are outstanding. Never mediocre, always stellar efforts.
If you were planning to do your taxes that evening, Don’t, just ask the IRS for an extension. Tasting all these Grgich wines is just too good to pass up.
Grgich Hills is Celebrating their 40th year in 2017. Their Wines are as good as ever.
