Congratulations to Miljenko Mike Grgich
The winner of the award for year 2022 is a famous winemaker from the USA Miljenko Mike Grgich, the only Croatian included in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. Although he achieved the “American Dream”, Mike Grgich has never forgotten his Croatian roots, but regularly provides scholarships to students from Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Although he is already 98 years old, it was not difficult for Grgich to sing the anthem “Lijepa naša” during the virtual broadcast of the ceremony, which caused bursts of enthusiasm and applause from the gathered guests, including Davor Stier, Zdravka Bušić, Canadian Ambassador to Croatia Alan Bowman, Head of Mission of the Embassy of Australia Andrea Biggi, Representative of the US Embassy….
The ceremony was also attended by representatives of some associations from Croatia that make up the ONE CROATIA initiative, including MEETING G2. On behalf of all members of MEETING G2, we sincerely congratulate Mike Grgich and the entire Grgich and Grgich Hills Estate Winery family on their incredible love for wine, people and Croatia.
Congratulations are also due to the Association of Croatian-American Professionals for the excellent initiative and connection of Croats from all over the world, on which MEETING G2 has been dedicated for seven years!
