Open: Year Round
The Millner family name comes from Franz Müllner (pictured left) who came from Neuhaus, Bohemia around 1880, which at that time, was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Franz’s wife Annastazia came with the children, Matt in particular, 2 years later in 1882. Later, Matt (pictured right) married a German, Theresea Gruber. Soon enough Matt and his brother-in-laws were making wine, whiskey, and many other spirits to which we have good stories of during the prohibition era.
Every generation since then has taken part in this family tradition, and it was decided in 2005 that we would take this family tradition to commercial scale. Ironically, Jon’s wife Annamaria grew up in Tiszauyvaros Hungary, not too far from either Eger or Tokay. She used to work at a vineyard and winery in Baden- Wurttemburg Germany and also in a vineyard in Iowa where Jon and Anna had met.
