A Legacy of Excellence and Innovation

As the daughter of the renowned winemaker Miljenko “Mike” Grgich and philanthropist Tatjana Grgich, Violet has continued her family’s legacy while pioneering new paths in sustainable viticulture. Under her leadership, Grgich Hills Estate became one of the first wineries in the world to achieve Regenerative Organic Certification, setting new standards for environmental stewardship in the wine industry.

Violet’s vision and leadership on innovation and support for her team’s approach to farming and dedication to no-till soil management, biodiversity, and natural pest control have positioned Grgich Hills Estate as a leader in sustainable wine production. Her work has not only enhanced the quality of their wines but also contributed positively to the ecosystem and the global community.
Humanitarian Efforts and Community Impact

Beyond the vineyards, Violet is deeply involved in humanitarian efforts. She is an active board member of WiRED, an organization providing free medical and health education to underserved communities, and a supporter of Roots of Peace, which transforms war-torn lands into productive vineyards. Her commitment to these causes reflects her belief in the power of agriculture to foster peace and economic stability.

Violet’s influence extends to mentoring the next generation of women in wine. She has been a vocal advocate for gender equality in agriculture, with 90% of her leadership team at Grgich Hills Estate being women. Her mentorship and support for initiatives like the training program for Ukrainian vintners highlight her dedication to empowering others.

Violet expressed her gratitude, stating, “This award is a testament to the hard work and passion of our entire team at Grgich Hills Estate. Together, we strive to create a legacy of excellence, responsibility, and compassion that reaches far beyond Napa Valley.”
