Immigrant grandparents from both sides of the family were involved with making wine while yet in Europe. When they arrived in this country from Italy and Serbia at the turn of the 20th century, our families brought those winemaking skills and love of winemaking with them. Most worked in steel mills or on the railroad. Some had farms and others grew grapes and vegetables on small plots.

The Great Depression was difficult time for the United States. There was little work as the mills closed. Many struggled to survive. Our grandparents were no exception. Wine making, which provided joy and pleasure during good times, helped our families stay together and survive.

As second generation, we went to schools and colleges. I completed medical school and became a general surgeon. My wife, Patricia Fleck Kavic, who is a registered nurse, completed graduate studies in social work and practiced in the field. But, we never forgot our roots. My wife and I made wine at home for years and delighted in comparing it with commercial products.

That same spirit of personal involvement, imagination and made by hand attitude governs every aspect of wine production at the Michael Stephen Kavic Winery.

Patricia's brother, Patrick J. Fleck, Jr., joined us last year as Manager of Operations at the Winery.

Our grapes are locally grown - none imported from California - using local labor and local products. Our winery is urban, located within 10 minutes of downtown Pittsburgh. Our vineyard, under development, will be within 5 miles of the winery. The entire process will be Pittsburgh made and Pittsburgh proud.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
