Aleš Kristančič
The man behind Slovenia’s iconic winery Movia. Kristančič is among the few who modernized and catapulted Slovenia’s winemaking to international notoriety.

BUILDING A LEGACY

Movia set a new benchmark for biodynamic viticulture and skin-contact winemaking. Wine critics and collectors alike point to Aleš as one of Europe’s most forward-thinking grape growers and transformers of grape to wine. Founded in 1820, Movia Estate, encompasses land in two contiguous and renowned wine regions – Brda, Slovenia, and Collio, Italy – but it pioneered a wine legacy all its own.
