Celebrating 90 years

Winemaker Mike Grgich celebrated his 90th birthday with friends and family Monday at Rutherford’s Grgich Hills Winery. During the celebration, attended by some 40 guests, Grgich presented two of his greatest achievements: his daughter Violet, left, and a bottle of 1972 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay. Grgich, of course, was the winemaker for Calistoga’s Chateau Montelena when the 1973 chardonnay won the famed “Judgment of Paris.” Grgich shared two bottles of the rare chardonnay with his guests, alongside stories and anecdotes from his long life.
