Ports

mapVenice rests three miles off the coast of mainland Italy and is considered one of the world’s most enchanting cities. Known as the “Queen of the Adriatic,” it actually comprises more than 100 separate islands. Laced together by a string of 400 intricate bridges, Venice is legendary for its labyrinthine network of canals. A whimsical stroll through the city can lead one to a hidden world of ornately decorated piazzas and shops. As you explore colorful marketplaces and busy town squares, marvel at a priceless legacy of Baroque architecture. Admire the richness of St. Mark’s Basilica and the lavishness of the Palazzo Ducale. Getting lost in Venice can be a truly delightful experience. The place of dreams, this romantic city will live long in your memory.

Tucked up under the arm of the Adriatic where Croatia meets Italy, Rovinj reflects a cross-section of cultures, not just of neighboring Italy but also of Greece, Austria and the Slavic nations. Empires have been competing over this wooded and strategically located region for centuries, contributing to Croatia’s rich tapestry of history along the way. The resulting complex and vibrant fabric, ever-evolving as time weaves, is yours to discover with your visit. One of the most striking of Rovinj’s buildings is the Church of St. Euphemia, with its bell tower rising above the city. Around every corner seems a grand gesture of architecture or quaint cafe. If you aren’t careful, you may begin to think you are wandering the cobbled lanes of Venice, as Rovinj’s colorful facades and charming piazzas are not far from the once-governing canal city, just two hours away by ferry across the gulf.

Sibenik is a unique place. Unlike many other cities on the Adriatic coast, Sibenik was founded by Croats and not by Romans, producing an interesting regional story and a collection of remarkable architecture. One example is Sibenik’s central church, the Cathedral of St. James, built completely in stone between 1431 and 1536 and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000. Sibenik’s Mediterranean climate and volleyed possession among Venice, Byzantium, Hungary and Bosnia give it a sun-glow warmth and distinct heritage. Laid out over an archipelago, the city rises up in layers from the harbor, fanning out from St. Anne’s Fortress and into a maze of narrow alleys and squares. If the attractions—and attractiveness—of the town center are not enough, then visit one of the area’s two national parks, Kornati, an archipelago of about 150 small islands, and Krka, famous for waterfalls and archaeological treasures.

Split was first settled when, at the end of the third century AD, the Roman Emperor Diocletian built his palace in the charming city. The importance of Diocletian’s Palace far transcends local significance because of its level of preservation and the buildings of succeeding historical periods found within its walls, which today form the very heart of old Split. The palace is one of the most famous and integral architectural and cultural constructs on the Croatian Adriatic coast. The seaport of Split lies on the Dalmation coast. It is the economic and administrative center of Middle Dalmatia, with about 200,000 inhabitants. Split’s growth became particularly rapid in the 7th century, when the inhabitants of the destroyed Greek and Roman metropolis Salonae took refuge within its walls. The lovely ruins of Solin, located outside the city, can still be explored today. Split has a long tradition of collecting and caring for monuments. This interest appeared as early as the Renaissance. Diocletian’s Palace, Mestrovic Gallery, the Archaeological Museum and the Temple of Jupiter are just a few of the impressive museums and galleries that shouldn’t be missed

Farthest from the mainland and until 1989 a military base for the Yugoslav National Army, the tiny isle of Vis has mostly escaped modern development, making it an appealing place to find a bit of Mediterranean authenticity. Fishing and wine are longstanding traditions, still alive and well in maritime villages, homey cafes and vineyard expanses. While relatively distant from its own Croatian mainland, Vis is culturally close to Venice, as Vis was once under the rule of the Republic of Venice. This rich history can be seen in the island’s architecture, humble and rustic with a Venetian flair. For the nature lover, there is much to make the heart flutter, from pretty pebble beaches and rugged shoreline to secluded coves and the ever-present blue waters of the Adriatic.

This small island located in the center of the Mediterranean is a nature-lover’s delight. The arrival of Croatians to Hvar in the Middle Ages turned this temperate island into the center of Croatian arts and literature, thus ensuing the production of extraordinary works in sculpture, paintings and music. Greeks founded their first colony here in 358 BC, and since then Hvar has survived frequent changes of occupancy throughout the Middle Ages and into modern times. The impact of the long period of Venetian rule is most evident in the town of Hvar, where there are numerous reminders of the glorious Renaissance Movement. Today, Hvar offers stretches of beaches that melt into the azure waters of the Mediterranean—a paradise to tourists and locals alike. Year round, the sun shines brightly on the splendid island of Hvar, making its limestone towns sparkle amid the fertile green hills, rocky terrain, and the surrounding sea of clear cobalt blue. Situated between the islands of Brač, Vis and Korcula, Hvar is the longest island in the Adriatic Sea, and it boasts one of the most beautiful landscapes nature has created. The climate is unmatched, and the clear, fresh air will refresh your soul. The magic of Hvar is eternal, its beauty is unforgettable.

Long stretches of beaches, rocky mountains within reach of the sea, fervent summers, untouched nature and unique city monuments make up the beautiful country Croatia. The town of Kor?ula is the historical, cultural and political center of the island. Considered the birthplace of Marco Polo, Kor?ula’s history and tradition are apparent when you walk along the paved streets and squares of this lovely town. Cultural and historical monuments such as the Treasury of the Abbey, the City Museum and the Museum of Icons can all be found in Korcula.

Though it has only recently re-emerged as an independent nation, Croatia is by no means a new country. There were settlements along the Dalmatian Coast before recorded time. When Slavic people migrated here in the 6th century, they converted to Catholicism and adopted the local Latin alphabet. The region eventually became part of the powerful Kingdom of Croatia. Medieval Dubrovnik, formerly the Republic of Ragusa, was one of several walled cities established in the 7th century to guard the coastal approaches. Its fortification was completed in the 13th century and has remained relatively unchanged. The city walls are in excellent condition and today prevent invasion by automobiles. Within the walls, the lovely sleek lines of Venetian-style buildings complement a wealth of ancient stone architecture. Nearby islands feature beautiful beaches & ancient ruins.

Violet Grgich

Violet on Bench (390x450)

Vice President of Sales & Marketing

Violet’s passion for wine began at an early age, as she literally grew up accompanying her father, Vintners Hall of Fame inductee Miljenko “Mike” Grgich, in the vineyards and cellar. She spent her summers at the winery, doing everything from bottling line work to laboratory analysis and working in the tasting room.

Attending the University of California, Davis, Violet earned a BA in music while taking classes in biology, chemistry, and enology.  After graduation, she returned home to Grgich Hills to continue her education in the wine business, learning about daily operations of the winery from her father, Miljenko “Mike” Grgich. She received her Master of Music in harpsichord at Indiana University, and then joined the winery fulltime in 1988. She’s now responsible for daily management of the winery, as well as sales and marketing. She says that she has the ideal job: “I believe that wine is part of a healthy, happy and long life. Wine brings people together and makes them happy, which makes my job extraordinarily fulfilling.”

Involved with every aspect of the wine business, Violet enjoys wearing many different hats, often at the same time.  She explains, “My dad insisted that in order to lead the winery I needed to work at every single position, starting at the bottom.” Violet continues to enjoy learning something new each day and following her grandfather’s and father’s philosophy of “Every day do something just a little better.”

Croatian Wine’s Finest Hour: Miljenko Grgich and the Judgement of Paris Turning 40: Total Croatia News

mikeTony Butala, winemaker and singer with Miljenko “Mike” Grgich, and the author, in 2015 at the 35th Anniversary of “The Great Chicago Chardonnay Showdown” victory celebration at the Grgich Hills Estate. By Steve Rukavina, 19 May 2016

The man from Dalmatia who shook up the famous winemakers of France in 1976 is honored again at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

Miljenko Grgich, the “King of Chardonnay,” was honored again by the Smithsonian National Museum of American History this past Monday, May 16, 2016. It was a pleasure for me to attend and hear more accolades about the famous Croatian winemaker’s achievements. Violet Grgich, represented her father well in Washington, DC by describing his love affair with grapes and sharing more secrets and nuances about his commitment to excellence in making such world class wine.

May 24, 2016 was the 40th Anniversary of the famous “Judgement of Paris” and writer George Taber calls it ” the historic 1976 Paris tasting that revolutionized wine.” How did the youngest of eleven children from a Croatian family in Desne Croatia, go from being an obscure winemaker in Napa, to being an overnight sensation by winning the Paris wine tasting with an American Chardonnay? It’s quite a story.

In 1976, Miljenko Grgich was the winemaker for Chateau Montelena winery. He really believed that their Chardonnay was world class and could compete with the French Burgundies, considered the best in the world.

Steve Spurrier, an Englishman running a boutique wine shop in Paris, came up with the novel idea of arranging a blind tasting in 1976 to honor America’s Bicentennial celebration and to pair the finest French wines against the up-and-coming winemakers from California. Who would have guessed that this blind tasting in Paris would catapult Miljenko Grgich into the international wine spotlight? It was surprising to hear directly from Miljenko that he did not even know that winery owner Jim Barrett had entered their 1973 Chateau Montelena into such an important Paris tasting and thought Jim was more on a wine romp through France.

The results on May 24th at the Intercontinental Hotel in Paris were truly astounding. The winner among reds was the 1973 Cabernet from Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, the Napa wine made by Warren Winiarski. Next, it was by an even bigger margin that Miljenko’s 1973 Chardonnay from Chateau Montelena topped world class French Meursault-Charmes for highest honors with white wine and the world renowned Batard-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet wines ranked a distant seventh and eighth.

The panel of nine French judges led by Pierre Brejoux had chosen Miljenko’s Chardonnay over the world’s best French Burgundies. It’s interesting that only one of those judges had ever tasted a Californina wine before that tasting. The French people and wine experts blamed Steve Spurrier, the Englishmen for this debacle and still did not want to admit the California wines could be judged superior to their French wines even though it was a blind tasting with all French judges. Yes, the man who wears a French beret and his wine had beat the French and the “Judgement of Paris” had now confirmed Miljenko Grgich and Napa Valley as world class winemakers. As Miljenko proudly told me, “it was so historical that an American Chardonnay had beaten the best French Burgundies.

You can imagine Miljenko’s surprise when a Western Union telegram arrived at the winery on May 26th, saying “Stunning Paris Tasting on May 24th Took First Place Over 9 Others,” and Bo Barrett there that day in 1976 said that Miljenko broke into a Croatian jig and so too did the rest of the staff. The next day, Miljenko was even more surprised when Frank Priall from the New York Times called and said he wanted to send a three person team to interview him. The famous wine journalist from the New York Times goes on to write, “The fact is that the best American vineyards and wineries can produce extraordinary wines. George Taber of Time magazine, the only journalist who attended the Paris tasting that day and author of the wonderful book “Judgement of Paris” wrote in 1976, “The unthinkable happened; California defeated Gaul.” Famous American wine critic, Robert M. Parker, Jr. wrote in 2001, “The Paris Tasting destroyed the myth of French supremacy and marked the democratization of the wine world. It was a watershed in the history of wine.”

Miljenko, now age 94, still considers this Paris victory, such a big accomplishment and with it that his 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay wine, beret and suitcase from Croatia are in public display at the Smithsonian Museum. Also, the “History of America in 101 Objects” chose the Julia Child’s kitchen with and including that 1973 Chateau Montelena masterfully craft by Miljenko and these “101 Objects” were chosen from out of 137 million artifacts and items available through the Smithsonian collection.

In 1976, Miljenko became the co-owner of the Grgich Hills winery and finally working for himself and did not waste any time in achieving another milestone victory with his Chardonnay. His victory with his first vintage of his 1977 Grgich Hills Chardonnay in the 1980 Chicago Chardonnay wine tasting and chosen from the best 221 Chardonnays from all over the world, was another hugely significant wine accomplishment. He’s extremely proud of the fact that the Chicago success was under the Grgich Hills name and trademark. This Chicago achievement again propelled Miljenko Grgich, even more into the spotlight as a shining star of American viticulture and a premier world class winemaker.

Miljenko stressed with me that his overnight success was not luck that “fell out of the sky” but was a lifetime of pursuing excellence step-by-step everyday. His dad’s words about doing your best and trying to learn something new everyday, associating with people who know more than you and making a new friend everyday, was great advice that helped him throughout his winemaking career.

Violet, Miljenko’s daughter, proudly announced that Miljenko’s biography is now published and “A Glass Full of Miracles” is a must read for any proud Croatian who wants to enjoy a remarkable story about someone who escaped communism and became an inductee into the Vintners Hall of Fame. You can get a copy of this 416 page book full of historic and colorful pictures at www.ViolettaPress.com.

Miljenko is extremely proud of his role in helping Professor Carole Meredith from UC Davis in tracking down the origins of Zinfandel to the coast of Croatia. It took a Croatian wine enthusiast like him to collaborate with a famous American grapevine geneticist to discover Zinfandel’s counterpart, “Crljenak Kastelanski” on the Dalmatian coast near Split, to solve the mystery and find Zinfandel’s true roots. Miljenko is also, pleased that he has been able to share many of his winemaking secrets with Croatian winemakers and was proud to return to Croatia after a 35 year absence to visit a free and democratic Croatia and then purchased a winery in Trstenik, where one can find and enjoy his world class Grgic Posip and Plavac Mali wines.

In closing, I believe Miljenko Grgich is the most famous Croatian American of all time. He never forgets to talk about Croatia when interviewed about his Grgich Hills wines and anyone who talks with Miljenko for even ten minutes, will know and hear that he’s a proud Croatian. It’s a long way for Miljenko, from Desne, Croatia and through Zagreb and Canada to Napa Valley and into the Vintner’s Hall of Fame. It’s a truly amazing life that Miljenko Grgich has led with so many glasses, full of miracles that have been part of his historic and successful winemaking career. For a Croatian American like myself, to be able to go to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington DC, to see a Croatian’s achievements being honored and on display is incredibly inspiring.
