70,000 artifacts in 75 years

This month Splurge! also spoke with another Wichitan who savors well-aged vintages: Dr. Theo Mellion, neurosurgeon and importer of fine French wines. You might have sipped some of his wares at prominent local restaurants. Or, if you're in a more laid-back mood, check out Dining South.
