"The 2015 Pinot Grigio is another attractive, open-knit white from Muri-Gries with plenty of near term appeal. Dried pear, white pepper and spice shape the inviting finish."~Antonio Galloni
"This working Benedictine monastery has an excellent reputation for their classy wines emerging from south of the Bremmer Pass in southern Tyrol. Founded in 1845 by Benedictine monks from Switzerland, Muri-Gries began producing wine in 1947 and has consistently performed well in my tastings."~Robert Parker
"An aromatic Pinot Grigio with hints of Poire William and mint in the bouquet. Fresh and tangy on the palate with a long finish. A stunning and very serious example of Pinot Grigio!"~Distributor Notes

"The ancient monastery of Muri-Gries, located just south of the Bremmer Pass in Süd Tyrol is the source for a bevy of clean, complex and classy wines made from the traditional grapes of this beautiful region. Muri-Gries remains a working Benedictine monastery, which was originally built in the late eleventh century as a fortress. In the fourteenth century, the fortress was donated to a local group of monks and converted into a monastery. Brothers of the Benedictine order arrived here from neighboring Switzerland in 1845 to take up residence in the recently abandoned site, and immediately brought their more sophisticated viticultural approach to the monastery's wines. Muri-Gries began to produce DOC wines in 1947, and since then the monastery has won local fame for the high quality of its wines, and is now becoming well-known to Italian wine-loving insiders throughout Europe and the US."
