Grgić Vina was established in 1996 by legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Croatian-born Miljenko “Mike” Grgich, his daughter, Violet Grgić and his nephew Ivo Jeramaz.
Dedicated to the art of winemaking, Mike started the winery to produce the finest wines from native Dalmatian grapes, and he concentrates on crafting Croatia’s very best varietals: Plavac Mali (red wine) and Pošip (white wine).
The winery is located in Trstenik on the Peljesac peninsula, with a stunning view over the Mediterranean Sea, north of the historic walls of the port of Dubrovnik, in the Southern wine region of Croatia.
Although Miljenko has received countless gold medals and the highest possible accolades for his California-made-wines, those dearest and most meaningful to him are the ones he received for his POŠIP and PLAVAC MALI in Croatia.
All wines made in at Grgić Vina in Trstenik have been judged to be ''VRHUNSKA VINA'' (top premium wines), and his 1996 PLAVAC MALI has twice been recognized as the BEST red Croatian wine on the market.
