The "Weingut / Klosterkellerei Muri-Gries" is located in Gries near Bolzano in the Italian wine-growing region of South Tyrol ( Trentino-South Tyrol region). The origins of today's monastery date back to 1845, when Benedictine monks from Muri in the Swiss canton of Aargau took over the Augustinian canons' monastery in Gries, which had already been dissolved by that time. In addition to the Muri-Gries vineyard, the monastery also manages orchards, a mountain farm in Kampidell near Jenesien and a monastery nursery. For a long time, the wine produced by the monastery was mainly used for its own needs. Christian Werth is the managing director and oenologist.
