Oenologist Lovro Miklaužić

At University of Zagreb Faculty of Agriculture, he graduated in viticulture and enology. His mentors were professors Edo Maletić, Ivan Pejić, Jasminka Karoglan Kontić, docents and assistant professors Silvio Šimon, Darko Preiner and Zvjezdana Marković. Upon completion of his master′s degree, in 2010 Lovro went to the United States of America for specialization in Opolo Wine-cellar, situated in the region of Paso Robles in California. The owners of the wine-cellar Rick Quinn and Dave Nicholas had together opened the family wine cellar, in which they produce one of the most well-known sorts of North America, Zinfandel. After returning to Croatia, Lovro went back to his Moslavina hills with a wish to devote himself to the family wine cellar. Today, the Miklaužić family on 40 hectares of vineyard produce autochthonous sorts of Škrlet, Frankovka, sparkling wines, rose, etc. For their wines, they also got prestigious awards: the second place for sort of Škrlet at International Wine Challenge in London and the second place for sparkling wine at Drinks Industry / Russian Wine Fair in Moscow.
