Lying along the prime strip of land that adjoins the Italian and the Slovenian sides of the Collio, the Movia estate has been in existencesince the year 1700. It was purchased by the Kristancic family in 1820 and is currently run by the iconic Ales Kristancic. Growing up in the vineyards and winery on many a late evening and Saturday afternoon when he would have preferred to play soccer, the new moon rose and Ales dutifully helped his father transfer wines from barrel to barrel. Today he passionately implements the rigorous biodynamic principles handed down to him while simultaneously experimenting to produce wines of unprecedented purity and authenticity. His distinct vision stems from the wisdom of eight generations spent among the vines and in the cellar coupled with a natural intuition toward to relationship between nature, soil, vines, and wine.
