In the early 1900s, Ivan Miklus acquired the land to be devoted to the cultivation of grapevines. With the help of his son Franz he renewed one hectare of vineyard by digging the solid land with his own hands as deep as 80 cm. Soon Franz was called for a long time in military service and after a few years he was offered to work as a commander in aviation. Even against the will of his father, he refused and chose a much harder life but which gave him more satisfaction. Working the land at that time required much more effort and sweat than today.
In 1992, a constant wine commerce began with the first labels named Draga. Later the grandson Milan, with a great help of his wife Anna, started to produce also wines labelled Miklus. In 2006 Start of production wines long maceration.

Maturation: Vinification: the grapes are harvested and selected manually, then delicately destemmed and macerated on the skins for 14 days in conical oak vats without temperature control. In these days the alcoholic fermentation begins and three times a day the manual punching down is carried out (immersion of the skins in the must). Subsequently the skins are subjected to soft pressing and the wine will then find its place in French tonnoux barrels for two years, always in contact with the yeasts until bottling. Aging in bottles for at least 6 months.
