Grand Opening of Miksic Vinohaus in Heart of Baranja!

“Give me books, wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know”, wrote John Keats, one of the greatest English romantic poets of all times.

Boris Miksic, CEO of Cortec Corporation® and his wife Ines, wanted to make their passion of growing private estate wines a reality for a long time. They opted for a vineyard in Boris’s home country Croatia. There could hardly be a better place for growing delicious wines than green and fertile Baranja region. People have been enjoying the taste of various wine sorts from Baranja region for centuries. In fact, the first vineyards there were planted by Roman emperors. Baranja is famous tourist gastro region with lots of very charming wine cellars. There, you can find the largest wine cellar, largest vineyard, giant barrel, top boutique wineries, and unforgettable sights and aromas. People from all over world come to taste and buy their favorite type of local wine while enjoying Baranja authentic cuisine. In this surrounding Ines and Boris decided to dedicate their time and knowledge to grow some of the finest vines at Miksic Vineyard they purchased few years ago. The vineyard is for growing private estate wines, Chardonnay and Merlot. These wines are in fact one of the most exported wines to the United States. Near the vineyard, the authentic wine cellar - Miksic Vinohaus, is located. Boris and Ines hosted the grand opening of the of Vinohaus recently, accompanied by dear friends and partners, our Croatian Cortec team as well as the Mayor of Beli Manastir and his wife. Guests were given the tour of the old wine cellar, guided wine-tasting as well as tasting of dry-cured meat delicacies and cheeses. Back in September, grapes for these private estate wines were collected at colorful Miksic Vineyard near Boris and Ines’s Peach Hill residence.

This event itself was super fun as an occasion to enjoy a joint activity on a beautiful sunny day. The team gathered picking grapes and spending time together. Everyone had so much fun that we decided to make it a yearly tradition. 300 kg of grapes were collected this first year of harvesting. After that a little party was held and well deserved after hard work. We cannot wait to welcome all of our friends during their next visit to Croatia to our Miksic Vineyard. We will enjoy these excellent wines and make more unforgettable memories together.
