Presentation of the vineyard
In 1845, the Benedictine monks from Muri in Switzerland moved to Gries in South Tyrol, where the order took over the Augustinian monastery. In this way, they inherited a long tradition of viticulture which they undertook and became an entire part of the work with the monastery, the vineyard and the property itself. The result of the 2000s has been a series of quality wines from Muri-Gries, as the Abtei Muri line, which has been produced since 1989, from selected grapes from the very best areas.
