A Marriage of
Art and Science

Shaped by a Unique Cultural Harmony

KRIS wines are handcrafted in Alto Adige using grapes sourced from Italy’s most esteemed growing regions. The winery is located in the Alpine town of Montagna, Italy (formerly Südtirol) where the local culture reflects a unique combination of Germanic precision sensibility and Italian artisan flare. Seven generations of winemakers steeped in this culture have yielded a wine as consistent and reliable as it is expressive and sensual.

Infused with Art, Science and Mystery

The playful, mysterious KRIS labels were designed by Italian artist Riccardo Schweizer, who was part of Europe’s Cubist movement along with his friends and contemporaries, Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. Born of love, the labels were commissioned by the KRIS winemaker’s wife as a gift to him for their wedding anniversary.
