Among other guest presenters in the history of the university association were previously great names such as Chateau Margaux, Chateau Haut-Brion, Chateau Mouton-Rothschild, Champagne Krug, Antinori and many others. The Miloš winery is the first regional winery invited to this type of presentation in Oxford.

Association members visited this past summer the Miloš family on Pelješac. They had the opportunity to taste first-hand the exceptional quality of wine and granted them an invitation. In the invitation, association President Chase Coffin-Roggeven cited Croatia is one of the oldest global wine zones, although in modern times not well recognised, with the Miloš winery a role model in what consumers expect from regions less known. “Vineyards of the Miloš family survived the years of mass production in former Yugoslavia. Frano Miloš returned to his family vineyards after the war and worked hard to build wines in organic production. Today the wines remind me of the classic Italian Barolo,” said Coffin-Roggeven.

Sons of Frano Miloš, Ivan and Josip, presented in Oxford the Stagnum vertical, the main house brand, ranging from 1993 to 2007. Coffin-Roggeven singled out the 1993 Stagnum as a personal favourite, naming it one of the greatest wines he has tasted in the last year.

“It took us over thirty years of thoughtful work to finally prove that on Pelješac peninsula, in a country less known in the world of wine, some of the best wines in the world can be made. When a prestigious wine club, such as the Oxford Wine Circle, wants to organise a closed tasting of only your wines, then you know you’re doing something good, something all of Croatia can be proud of,” Ivan Miloš shared his impressions from the tasting.

Miloš wines have been present in Britain for nearly a decade and are on wine shelves of respected stores and restaurants, such as Harvey Nichols.
