Winemaker Notes

The king of specialty wines – nature, with a helping hand from the moon, does most of what is usually done by man. Movia's most healthy and pure wine, without added sulphur. Pure nature in your wineglass. Amber color of medium intensity. The bouquet is pleasant, youthful, reminiscent of grapes. Notes of wood ageing are present, as is a refined spicy woody note, hinting at incense and fine herbs. On the palate the wine is dry, elegant, bitterish (the grape skins disintegrated and remained in the wine) and youthful. Grape notes on the nose are overcome by a fine note of wood. Plenty of character and a fine, long aftertaste. An extraordinary wine.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling
Aromas of ginger, sliced apple and pear with hints of dried pineapple and honey. It's not clear and needs to be stood up for a few days and decanted first. Full body, dense and rich like a red wine with a long and flavorful finish. It's like biting into an orange with all its juice and fruit. This was made with no sulfur. Totally nautral. No filteration. Lots of lee sediment in the bottle making it cloudy. Made from ribolla gialla.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Deeply golden in color, this has the floral- and yeast-laced nose of a fine Lambic beer, with more delicacy on the palate. Subtle notes of macerated apricot, ground clove, dried orange peel and toasted almond are well-integrated with the rapierlike acidity and light tannins. Offers a long, saline-tinged finish. Ribolla. Drink now through 2023.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
A warm gold color implies the generous texture of this wine. It's fattened up by alcohol and fruit-skin tannin, the briny lees of the structure completely filled by a deep orange fruit flavor. Tart, cidery acidity cleans it up, leaving spice and white tea scents in the finish. Serve with roast veal and spaetzle.

Movia, Other Europe
Image of winery
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.

A picturesque, eastern European wine growing nation, Slovenia can claim one of the most ancient winemaking cultures in all of Europe. Its history dates back to the Celts and Illyrians tribes, well before the Romans had any influence on France, Spain or Germany. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that Slovenia developed a more refined, private-sector wine industry.

Today it is a powerful source of some of the industry’s most important orange wines (whites made with extended skin contact); furthermore, fully three quarters of the country’s wine production is white.

Slovenian weather is continental with hot summers and cold, wet winters. It is divided into three wine regions: Podravje in Slovenia’s northeast; Primorska in its west, close to Italy; and Posavje in its southeast. These are further divided to nine wine districts.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties but they can really be found in any region.
