A Lifetime of Gold

On July 6, The National Federation of Croatian Americans President Paul Tonsetic-Kunder presented Rutherford vintner Miljenko “Mike” Grgich with the NFCA Lifetime Achievement Award.

The award was presented in recognition of Grgich’s acclaim as a winemaker at the “Judgment of Paris” tasting, the Smithsonian exhibit, his success as a businessman and for his strong and continued support of Croatian culture and numerous Croatian causes.

After receiving the award, Grgich recalled advice given him by his father. “The night before I left former Yugoslavia, my father told me that the only advice he could give me is to try and do three things every day.
