Miklus - Italy
Behind the brands Draga and Miklus there are people, as well as vines and fruits. Mitja, with his tireless parents Anna and Milan, who are united by their passion and experience of the generations of Miklus family, leads the company with passion and determination of the ancestors.
The vineyards are entirely covered with grass, managed with maximum respect of the environment and especially of the consumer, without the use of herbicides.
We have chosen only one master: the Nature. Our company has been awarded several times with the eco-friendly prize. The vineyards are covered with grass and managed with low environmental impact. The wine is bottled in lightweight glass. We benefit also green energy generated by two photovoltaic systems. The rainwater is recovered in a large tank for agricultural use and for the cleaning of machinery. We are provided with a natural water spring that allows us to have independent water supply even during the drier years.
Moreover, we also use the renewable energy for heating business premises obtained directly from our property.
Grandfather Franz often said: “If you respect the nature and the land, they will never betray you.“
