Nevertheless, they did not forget Nature's bequest: be genuine, respect and do not stand in its way. That is why Movia is more than merely a brand. It is nature's agent in your wine glass, in you.
The Movia estate has existed since 1700 and has been in the hands of the Kristančič family since 1820 following a wedding. The estate covers 18 hectares of land, half of which lie on the Italian side of the Collio.
After World War II the vineyards remained in the family's hands, allowing the continuation of this tradition in the Brda. Our wine's quality allowed the Kristančič family to become exclusive suppliers of wine for state protocol events in the former SFR Yugoslavia in 1958. In keeping with the family's decades of winemaking endeavor, Aleš honed his skills in Bordeaux and in Burgundy, returning back home with the idea of a completely different concept of wine production, enriched with new knowledge of modern winemaking and marketing concepts. It was on the basis of these new ideas that the historical breakthrough of Slovenian wines began.
The Movia brand is among the most important and most frequently awarded wines in South-Eastern Europe.
One fifth of the Kristančič family's annual production is sold domestically, while all of their remaining product is sold to world markets.
