Kris wines are crafted 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. Art has long played a part in the labels at Kris. Contemporary Italian artist Riccardo Schweizer (1925 – 2004), who studied under Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró, designed the playful and modern Kris wine labels. Each label conveys Kris' expressive style and portrays the blending of art and science in the Kris winemaking process. The gold orb in each label depicts role of the Italian sun in ripening the grapes to perfection. The hand represents the role of the human hand in cultivating the grapes and crafting the wine. The sensual kiss mark represents the role of the lips that ultimately savor the wine. The theme of science is ever present in each of Schweizer's label designs, from the molecule-inspired grapes in the Pinot Grigio label to the DNA-inspired color strand in the Pinot Noir label.

"From the Haas family, this incredible value in dry, fresh, lively white wine has been a huge success in the U.S. ... and it's easy to understand why. A beautiful floral nose reveals hints of honeyed lemon, orange rind and pears. Crisp, light to medium-bodied, refreshing & well-made." Wine Advocate

Wine AdvocateThe Kris 2019 Pinot Grigio (packaged in its usual screw cap bottle) shows a textbook interpretation of this versatile grape. The bouquet reveals pretty tones of citrus, honeydew melon, apple, crushed stone and freshly cut grass. Throughout it all, the wine shows a heightened level of sharpness and focus that can only come from the cooler climates of Northern Italy. This easy wine would pair with a classic insalata di mare served by the beach or the pool.

Wine EnthusiastThe rather shy nose evokes spring wildflower and white stone fruit. On the crisp palate, vibrant acidity accompanies suggestions of green apple and pear before a citrusy close.

VinousThe 2019 Pinot Grigio is spicy and fresh with a bouquet of yellow florals, dried ginger and pear. Its soft textures balance ripeness of fruit with subtle minerality to create a pleasant and round expression. Hints of ripe apple and lime linger through the finale.
