Movia, Brda, Slovenia

Movia’s Aleš Kristančič is the 8th generation wine maker in his family and a pioneer in the natural wine movement. Aleš is one of the leading wine makers in Slovenia.

The Movia estate dates back to the 18th century, passing into the hands of the Kristančič family in 1820. The estate extends over 22 hectares of land, about half of which lie on the Italian side of the Goriška Brda (Collio).

A Mediterranean climate with moderate summers and sufficient precipitation all make the Brda region ideal for the production of dry wine. The vicinity of Alpine peaks provides just the right amounts of cool air for higher levels of acids and aromatic substances to develop in the grapes compared to other Mediterranean regions. This makes this region perfect for the Rebula (Ribolla Gialla grape) and Friulano as well as the traditional French grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Movia wines are produced with the highest measure of respect towards nature, using bio-dynamic methods in the wine-making, including use of native yeasts.

These wines require appropriate storage. All wines are low in sulphate (<50 mg/L).
