Muri-Gries

www.muri-gries.com/en
The year 1845 sees the birth of Muri-Gries. Benedictine monks were forced to leave their monastery, founded in 1027 in Muri in the Swiss canton of Aargau, and moved to the now-dissolved Augustinian convent of canons in Gries. In 1968 the monastery cellar experienced a dramatic change: for the first time, its own wines were bottled in great style in the winery itself. A consistent quality approach was increasingly evident. In 1985 Lagrein gained first place in the monastery cellar’s wine hierarchy and began to show its true profile. Muri-Gries recognises the value of the old, indigenous and often neglected grape varieties. An awareness of one’s own traditions has been revived. The secret of the monastery cellar’s success focusing on the quality of its own grape varieties, while working with and building on its own resources.
