We are thrilled to welcome Sean Barrett, Midwest Division Manager, and the all-estate-grown wines of Grgich Hills Estate in Napa Valley! Grgich Hills Estate gained international recognition after the now-famous Paris Wine Tasting in 1976. Miljenko “Mike” Grgich presented one of his wines to a blind-tasting panel of eminent French judges. They 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. Today, the Grgich family remains committed to making distinctive wines with quality, consistency and longevity. World leaders such as Presidents Reagan and Clinton, Queen Elizabeth II and French President François Mitterrand chose their wines to serve at state dinners, and they are just as proud that every single day discriminating wine drinkers count on Grgich Hills to turn their own dinners into special occasions. The Rattlesnake Club and Executive Chef Chris Franz is known for creating memorable occasions surrounding great wine and food; we are very excited to bring this exclusive dinner to you!
