The awarded wines of Aleš Kristančič, the star of the Slovenian wine scene.

Lan disgorging and pouring a glass of Movia Puro Rosè.

Aleš and Lan Kristančič represent the 8th and 9th generation of this family that runs this historic estate founded in the 18th century. The estate occupies over 22 hectares of land, between the Slovenian Brda and the Italian Collio. Movia’s wines established themselves as dynamic, genuine and fascinating expressions, whose renown has gone well beyond the borders of Slovenia. Ales Movia’s goal has always been to produce wines that could be regarded as the best ones in Europe in terms of respect and love for nature. Movia’s wines are produced by the traditional method without using chemical fertilization neither in the vineyard nor in the cellar. The annual production is around 120000-150000 bottles.

They called me crazy but I make the authentic wine: I give to the world a pure wine, a wine that comes exclusively from the grapes.
