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.
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!
