Liliac Winery is located in the heart of Transylvania, being one of the newest and quickly attained reputations among wine-makers of the Lechinţa DOC. The vineyard thrives in a land full of legends and tales, and viticulture and winemaking in this region dates back to ancient times (4-5th centuries BC), but the zenith of this wine producing region was reached with the arrival of German settlers in the 12th century.
Forgotten, Lechinţa Vineyard regained recognition through the successes of the wines produced at Batoş by Liliac Winery.
Austrian businessman Alfred Michael Beck made an investment in the Liliac Winery in 2010. With 52 hectares, Beck resumed the old tradition of the region by making fresh dry white wines with high acidity and delicate spicy notes. Liliac imposed itself by producing from the beginning extractive and elegant red wines. A very inspired decision, which surprised the specialists of the wine industry and thus, managed to complete the “Fetească” family (Regală, Albă and Neagră).
The vision of the Liliac Winery did not stop here, managing to become a success on the Romanian and international markets a white aromatic dessert white wine, Muscat Ottonel – Nectar of Transylvania, made by a special process using the technique of naturally dried grapes. Next, Liliac succeeded by making the first Romanian orange wine and the most expensive local wine – Titan Fetească Neagră. These successes are cherished further by the fact that, before 2010, the concept of red wines in Lechinţa DOC was almost non-existent.
Furthermore, Liliac Winery still manages to surprise almost every year with new wine ranges, lately charming the taste of the young consumers with the Young collection.
