The quirky wine genius, Ales Kristancic, crafts his wines at his pink-walled winery in Dubrovo, Slovenia. He grows both well-known grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir and lesser varieties such as Ribolla Gialla. Movia has been owned by the Kristancic family since 1820. Currently it is the most well known and best winery in Slovenia. Pinot Noir has been produced since 1973.
Movia was one of the featured wineries at the 2006 World of Pinot Noir. I sampled the Movia Pinot Noir and found it very interesting with a subdued but pleasantly fruity nose and an enticing core of sweet Pinot fruits.
A limited amount of Movia wines are exported to the United States. If you run across any, grab them. Annual production is 10,000 cases. Imported by Domaine Select Wine Estates, NY.
