About the Winery:
Movia is more than a mere wine label, it is a way of life, life in all its purity of nature and sincerity of the author. A brand beyond time, Movia’s supreme standards are why they are sought after by so many wine connoisseurs around the world. From light classics, through a range of mature wines with good ageing potential, they are widely considered as one of the world’s finest.
A family estate with its main house in Ceglo, Movia covers 22 hectares of vineyards including many of the best parcels in the borderland between Slovenia (ZGP Brda) and Italy (DOC Collio). In the global market today, Movia is a synonym for wines with impressive character and extraordinary elegance. They offer a glimpse into the noblest of viticultural traditions.
The wines were given time to reach full maturity in their home cellar and are only released onto the market several years following their vintage. Succinctly put, they revived pre-classical vinification procedures that did not revert to sugar for re-fermentation in the bottle. Guided by winemaker Ales Kristancic, a fervent defender of Mother Nature, Movia wines are produced with the highest measure of respect towards the environment – no fining, no filtration, 100% natural.
