About this winery

The KRIS winery is located in the beautiful hillside town of Montagna, located in the Northern Italian region of Alto Adige. Here you will find a unique combination of German history and Italian nationality working in unison to produce wines that are artistic, but are born out of modern winemaking practices. KRIS’ beautifully designed labels are the work of Riccardo Schweizer, a good friend of the winery owner and also a native of Northern Italy. Schweizer, who spent many years studying...

Notes about product

The KRIS winemakers take full advantage of the “delle Venezie” designation by marrying the best fruit from the appellation’s three permitted regions to yield a Pinot Grigio with an unusually expressive flavor profile. Veneto fruit provides the delicate floral notes and the classic almond finish so typical of this region. Grapes sourced from the southwest-facing slopes of the village of Montagna in Alto Adige receive ample sun and contribute ripe yet fresh citrus and pear fruit. The Mulinat estate in Friuli, where the soils are gravelly and well drained produce low-yielding fruit that helps to intensify flavour. The final blend shows depth of flavor in a bold, Northern Italian style.

Winemaking notes

Made entirely from Pinot Grigio grown in the Veneto regions of northeast Italy in a mixture of silt and clay soils, this wine is fermented in stainless steel to preserve its wholesome freshness and fruitiness. Fermented for 6 - 10 days at 16 - 20 degrees Celsius.

Tasting notes

With enticing aromas of acacia flowers, lime, tangerine and hints of apricots and almonds, KRIS Pinot Grigio is bold but clean and refreshing on the palate, and offers a long finish tinged with orange blossom and honey.

November 2017

The Kris' recognizable green hand label was designed by Italian artist Riccardo Schweizer (1925-2004). 

Consistently on-point, this vintage doles out stewed yellow apples, ripe pear and marzipan with honey, white raisins, lemon meringue and acacia blossoms. It is weighty in the mouth; bitter almond and lemon zest flavours prevail. Lengthy and complex overall, with good balance and pithy, mouthwatering finish. 

Pair: A rustic antipasti platter, a simple Aglio e Olio (pasta with garlic, olive oil and chili flakes) or white meats.

August 2017

Year in-and-out, Kris Pinot Grigio marries crispness and intensity with layers of flavour and texture. It’s refreshing, sure, but also balanced and elegant — making it quite the versatile white wine that is ready to pair up with a bounty of diverse meals, from grilled seafood to chicken alfredo. Bottom line: B+ “Impressive all-round PG”
