The Movia estate dates back to 1700, passing into the hands of the Kristančič family with a wedding in 1820. The estate extends over 22 hectares of land, about half of which lie on the Italian side of the Goriška Brda (Collio).
Movia is more than a mere wine brand and the name of an estate on the borderland between Slovenia (ZGP Brda) and Italy (DOC Collio). Movia is a way of life, life in all its glory, purity of nature and sincerity of the author. Movia is a label beyond time, a mark of standards surpassed as sought by so many wine connoisseurs around the world. From gentle and light classics, through a range of mature wines with good ageing potential, to one-offs second to none other in the world. That and very much more is what Movia is about. And when you alight from the cellar and taste the wines with Aleš, you will taste magic!
This land of low-lying, gently flowing hills in western Slovenia where the soil is primarily flysch. 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. The Brda´s characteristic whites are gentle, balanced, fresh and vivacious; most age well. Reds of good vintages have a very strong color and a pronounced extract, developing into an elegant harmony and completeness of flavor and bouquet as the wines age.
The wine glass gives wine its final shape and form.
That is why Movia is more than merely a brand. It is nature’s agent in your wine glass, in you. The Movia and Vila Marija brands are among the most important and most frequently awarded wines in South-Eastern Europe.

The most important, decisive investment for any wine producer is his vineyard. A good vineyard, however, requires more, its demands time. It requires patient waiting for the vineyard to mature, to acquire wisdom and to start its coexistence with the vintner and begin developing its own style.
Of all of Slovenia´s winegrowing regions, the Goriška Brda have the highest per-hectare yield of medals and recognitions at wine fairs and expos both at home and overseas.
