We are excited to release the long-awaited autobiography of Miljenko “Mike” Grgich, Napa Valley legend and Vintner Hall of Fame inductee, on his 93rd birthday, April 1, 2016.
A Glass Full of Miracles is a memoir about the triumph of the underdog. Miljenko “Mike” Grgich’s story of his search for freedom and the chance to fulfill his American Dream is intensely personal and told with his characteristic charm and passion. It contains Mike’s personal angle on the major figures in the winemaking ferment of the Napa Valley, and an abundance of stories and lore. But it is more than just a good read: the text, in combination with more than 150 carefully chosen photos and maps, makes this book a moving meditation on the art of a life lived in the pursuit of making the perfect wine.
Violetta Press was created when Miljenko “Mike” Grgich asked his daughter, Violet Grgich, to publish his memoirs.
