Movia – Become The Winemaker
14th June 2022
The Sparkling Wine which Movia produces is slightly different compared to most, on some of their bottles, they leave the final stage of the wine production to you.
You get to experience a part of making Sparkling Wine by disgorging the bottle, in essence becoming the Winemaker for a short moment.
Movia believes that the second most important drink a person consumes is Wine, and if that incorporates Sparkling Wine, then I happen to agree with them, Movia was created in 1820, in Slovenia, they own over 30 hectares with 25 of them dedicated to growing vines, spreading over both Slovenian-Goriška Brda region and the Italian side, Collio and since 2004 their winery has been certified organic.
The family lives and breathe the Wines and Sparkling Wines that they produce, they don’t separate their private life from business life because they are so passionate about what they are creating that they enjoy every moment from the vine to the bottle, this is something that I can understand and truly appreciate, so even now I believe we’re am going to be in for an amazing tasting experience when we pop open these bottles of Sparkling Wine from Movia.
They also have an easy step-by-step pdf guide on how to open a bottle of Puro Movia, in English and Slovenian to make this awesome experience easy to complete.
The family doesn’t speak much about their history on their website, what they do instead is showcase who they truly are with dozens of quality pictures showing the family in their element, in the vines, winery and even back some years.
“Before my father passed the winery into my hands, he made me believe that we-people didn’t invent wine, we just discovered it. And everything starts from here. “ -Aleš
Even if you can’t make it out to their winery, you can still enjoy a glass of Movia in heart of Ljubljana city at their Movia Wine Bar, where they have their Wines available along with a selection of other natural wines, and selected delicatesses.
