Kristancic family married a Movia daughter since 1820 and took over the management of the vineyard with 300 years history. Ales is the 8th generation of his family business. A degree holder of oenology, intern of Ch. Petrus and Domain Romanee Conti, fabulous bass guitarist, poet and ballroom dance champion, he invented two unique ways of wine making that accounts for his reputation as one of the top 10 most influential winemakers in the world. Movia is a biodynamic grower though not officially registered, with 100 % natural in vinification. It is also the state wine of Slovenia. His fans include Bill Clinton and Tiger Woods. In 2009, Movia is voted as producer of the year by Food and Wine Magazine in the United States and in 2015, it is rated as one of the world's top 100 producers by the Wine and Spirits Magazine.

Tasting Note 鑒賞:
Notes of wood ageing are present, as is a refined spicy woody note, hinting at incense and fine herbs. On the palate the wine is dry, elegant, astringent (the grape skins disintegrated and remained in the wine) and youthful. Grape notes on the nose are overcome by a fine note of wood.Plenty of character and a fine, long aftertaste. An extraordinary wine.
