GRO Wines is the brand of seasoned winemakers Lars Bjorkman and Molly Hill. GRO means ‘to germinate’ in Swedish. The brand ties Lars’ Swedish influence about site—picking blueberries, mushrooms and crayfish from the area his family founded in Sweden had a huge impact on his formative years and how he understood site—to Lars’ knowledge about Napa Valley terroir. Being winemakers, Lars and Molly pull fruit from the best ‘insider’ sites, mini archipelagos within the larger Napa Valley appellation. All wines are from single vineyard locations.Lars is the long-time associate winemaker for Saddleback Cellars and the winemaker for Casa Nuestra, in addition to having several other projects around the valley. Lars grew up in Fresno, in the heart of central valley agriculture. He graduated with a degree in Viticulture and Enology from UC Davis.
Molly is the long-time winemaker for Sequoia Grove Winery. As a fourth generation Californian, her family has long agriculture ties to the area and she grew up in Summerland, California, surrounded by avocados and lemons. Also a graduate of UC Davis’ program of Viticulture and Enology, she and Lars raise their two children in their mid-century home in Calistoga, California.
