In today’s Transylvania, Liliac is bringing back to life a wine-making tradition that is centuries old. Original, cultural landscape and modern wine-making technology work here in a fascinating symbiosis second to none. It is here that autochthonous wines are produced, exciting in their finesse and complexity. Whether white, red, rosé or irresistibly sweet – whenever Liliac adorns the neck of a bottle, an inspiring drinking experience is close to hand.
Alongside hand-selected Romanian grapes, in every bottle of Liliac there is also a goodly amount of Austrian expertise. Under the direction of Rudolf Krizan, who has experienced for many years the miscellaneous faces of wines as a specialist, the vineyard and wine cellar are professionalized in every detail. A wine-lovers’ joint venture then, impressively underlining Liliac’s high quality standards.
The wine-producing region of Lechința may seem to travelers a forgotten patch of earth. But to those involved in wine production, the region reveals itself as a haven created to bring forth great wines. Batoş is Liliac’s home. Here the landscape features broad green highlands with gently rounded contours – reminiscent of the rolling hills of Tuscany – and numerous streams and lakes winding through them.
The mineral-rich soils and moderate continental climate are embraced and protected by the crescent-shaped arc of the Carpathian mountains and ultimately contribute to the ripening of the very finest grapes.
