5th of July 2011. was not just another summer day in Dalmatia but for many day of grief and a day when Dalmatian wine world lost one of it’s big contributors. Thus, when least expected our close friend Milan Ožić left us at his age of 29. This energetic young man, wine enthusiast, world traveler, cool guy with open horizons and various interests, reliable friend and excellent companion, has in only few years succeeded to leave a remarkable trace to now re-emerging Dalmatian wine scene. As one of the founders of Dalmatia Wine Expo, Milan with his colleagues has managed to place his birth town of Makarska as a central place for wine happenings in southern Croatia. Unfortunately his dynamism and great aspiration to continue on the same path with new ideas and ventures were suddenly stopped leaving in sorrow hundreds of people loving his manière d’être, his thirst for discoveries and constant will to share good moments in life with people that surrounded him. Longer story on Milan is brought in Croatian version of this post while for the farewell we can only say: Mike we will miss you indefinitely!
