Interview with Kreso in Cincinnati Magazine!

Kreso Mikulic: Master of Wine and Mustaches

September 5, 2015, published in Cincinnati Magazine

by Michelle Sullivan

PHOTOGRAPH BY ANNETTE NAVARRO

In his 81 years, Kreso Mikulic has been many things: carpenter, engineer, Olympic gymnast, alpine skier, and now winemaker at his scenic Vinoklet Winery in Colerain Township. Sample the fruits of his labor—as well as local art and live music—at Vinoklet’s 17th annual Art and Wine Festival (Sept. 12 & 13). Sip a glass, perhaps buy a bottle, and implore Mikulic to share his life story—which won’t require much convincing.

When I bought this land in 1980, I was an aerospace engineer. I was the chief designer with my company, a subsidiary of General Electric. It was 30 acres, all woods and hills. I didn’t know I would build a winery. It was just an investment.

It’s in my blood, making wine. My father used to make wine. At 5 years old, I was stomping grapes. Where I’m from, in Croatia, if there were 16 houses, there were 16 wineries. My mother had 13 kids; I’m number 10. She always said God gave her 13 kids to help work the vineyard.

It started as a hobby. I knew how to plant grapes, so I thought I’d plant a few for my friends. The first time, I had about 50 vines. They died. The next time, I did about 150 vines. They died, too. I said, “Maybe I should get some books.” Then I planted 500 vines and every one of them shot up. The next year, I planted 1,000, and 1,000 the year after that.

I never thought I’d make a living this way. When I still had a full-time job before I retired [in 2000], someone would ask me how many people I had working here, and I’d say “Oh, about half.” Now I have 20 people. I sell my wines in 100 stores.

Ah, the mustache. You see, to have a winery you have to have character. It should be eccentric, something to remember. My mustache is part of my character.

I like to make jokes, but I used to be very shy. I don’t know when it changed. Maybe it’s the wine.

Top Destination

 Vinoklet Winery was voted number 10 out of 25 in the Columbus Monthly's article "25 Great Ohio Food & Wine Destinations"!

 

From Columbus Monthly:
Vinoklet Winery, Cincinnati

When he bought 30 acres of land off a windy, hilly road north of Cincinnati to plant a vineyard 34 years ago, Kreso Milkulic never imagined it would develop into a thriving winery and restaurant that allowed him to leave his day job as an aerospace engineer. “It was a hobby that grew out of control,” says Milkulic, who moved to the U.S. from his native Croatia in 1968. His father owned a small vineyard, and Vinoklet Winery is a nod to his heritage; vinoklet means “wine house and vineyard” in Croatian. Nearly 80, white-haired and mustachioed Milkulic lives next door and is an ever-present figure on the scenic property, surveying row upon tidy row of grapevines or bottling one of his eight wines. Don’t be surprised if he pulls a seat up to your dinner table. The eclectic hodgepodge of art, antique collectibles, Croatian memorabilia and personal photographs scattered about the dining room offers a glimpse into the winemaker’s fascinating story—one he’ll happily share if you ask. 11069 Colerain Ave., Cincinnati, 513-385-9309

Exclusive Wine

Wine-Medugorje

Exclusive Wine from Medugorje - Only from Vinoklet

Christian tradition teaches that Christ begins his ministry with the miraculous transformation of water to wine at the wedding at Cana in Galilee.  It was the first of the miraculous signs.  Wine has been an integral part of Christian tradition from the beginning. 

Vinoklet now brings you wine from Medugorje, known as a “Holy Place” to many Christians around the world.  It is said that the Virgin Mary appeared to young shepherds tending sheep in the small villiage and brought a message similar to the ones given in Guadalupe, Lourdes and Fatima.  

People from all over the world have visited Medugorje to pay tribute to this remarkable event.  Many believers claim they are richer in their spiritual life and their prayers were fulfilled. 

The sun and soil of Medugorje provide a unique area to produce this high-quality wine.  It has been enjoyed by European nobility including kings and queens at royal feasts and galas.

Vinoklet Winery is now importing this exceptional wine for your pleasure.  Wines from Medugorje include BLATINA, a dry red wine similiar to a Cabernet Sauvignon and ZILAVKA, a dry white wine similiar to a Chardonnay.
