The ancient monastery of Muri-Gries, located just south of the Bremmer Pass in Südtirol, is the source of incredibly clean and complex wines made from the traditional grapes of the region. A working Benedictine monastery, Muri-Gries was originally built in the late eleventh century as a fortress, which was eventually donated to a local group of monks and converted into a monastery. Brothers of the Benedictine order arrived here from neighboring Switzerland in 1845 and immediately brought their sophisticated viticultural approach to the monastery’s wines. Ever since, the monastery has been locally acclaimed for the high quality of its wines, and is now becoming well-known to Italian wine-loving insiders throughout Europe and the US.
