Two men born in a small Croatian town have their works selected in the prestigious book "101 thing that has made ​​America what it is" ( History of America in 101 objects or " 101 object that made America " ) .


These are brilliant inventor Nikola Tesla and the legendary American- Croatian winemaker Miljenko (Mike) Grgich.  Congratulations to Mike, who makes one of the best Chardonnay's anywhere.

    What Tesla accomplished is mind-blowing (my trip to Niagara Falls this past summer taught me a lot).  I must look into Mr. Grgich's wine -- thank you for the tip, anadyr!  -Sledchick

      I was lucky enough to meet Mike Grgich in the 70's!  Wish I had a picture, but don't!  He was a wonderful "Working Class" guy and was very friendly.

       

      Vineyard trips were so much fun then, and probably still are, but I don't do them to much anymore.  One of my favorites was Chateau Montelena!

        We met Mike in the late 1980s shortly after moving here, at a WINO dinner in Pebble Beach.  He is a real hugger--never shook hands with any of the women but gave them all affectionate hugs.

          anadyr,

           

          Thanks for sharing!

           

          He certainly was not a "Flashy" guy or "Hollywood bound", but just struck me as a "Real person"!

           

          Your take?

            Amazing man, smallish but pluckish.

              anadyr,

               

              He reminded me of "Harry Houdini"  Am I wrong?
