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 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 Miró. The original paintings were given by Schweizer to his friend, the KRIS winery’s founder for his birthday.

Tasting Notes

KRIS Winemakers have combined modern technology and traditional winemaking artistry to handcraft an exquisite modern Italian expression of a fresh, crisp sparkling wine.  The wine is characterized by delicate hints of citrus and pear and subtle floral undertones.

Food Pairing

The light and delicate bubbles and dry profile make KRIS Sparkling Cuvée an excellent pairing for light appetizers and dishes or it can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitivo.
