From their small beginnings in 2003 in a food business incubator in Athens, Ohio, Vino de Milo's one mission has never wavered: creating the freshest, best-tasting, most creative specialty foods possible, without ever sacrificing quality.
Why the name Milo?
Far before it was trendy, the name Milo was a Leal family name going back generations. Jonathan’s paternal grandfather Otis Milo Leal (named after an uncle Milo, believed to be the first) passed the name on to his son (and Jonathan’s father) William Milo Leal. Jonathan’s sister Jenny continued the tradition, with one of her twins being named Ethan Milo (joining Isaac William).
Counting the company (and it is Jonathan’s baby!), the name Milo is now in its 6th generation and going strong!
