Pale yellow in color with brilliantgreenish reflections, enticing aromas of acacia flowers, citrus, tangerine, and hints of apricots and almonds. Kris is lean and refreshing on the palate with hints of blossom and honey.

So much better than other more expensive pinot grigios that are familiar to everybody and so much more expensive. It does not have a lot of acidity, it is crisp, light and very refreshing though! Great wine if you have not tried it yet. From the heart of Italy....

As with any masterpiece, to truly appreciate Kris is to understand its origin and the background of its creators. Handcrafted in Alto Adige using grapes sourced from Italy's most exciting growing regions, Kris is a product of seventh generation winemaker Franz Haas and his wife, Maria Luisa Manna Haas. In Kris, Franz and Maria have combined their expertise and passions to develop a series of contemporary expressions of classic varietal wines reflective of the unique 1. personality of Northeast Italy.
Wine maker notes
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 flavor. The final blend shows depth of flavor in a bold, Northern Italian style.

KRIS wine is handcrafted in Alto Adige using grapes sourced from Italy’s most esteemed growing regions. The winery is located in the hillside town of Montagna, where culture is a unique reflection of Germanic heritage and Italian nationality. An ideal combination of and traditional winemaking artistry and modern technology is used to blend each of the KRIS wines. The timeless and inspiring KRIS labels emphasize the role of the sun in ripening the grapes to perfection, the human hand in crafting the wine, and the lips that savor the wine. Riccardo Schweizer, a native of Alto Adige, studied cubism in Paris under Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro. The original paintings were given by Schweizer to his friend, the KRIS winery’s founder for his birthday.
