Liliac Wineries the living legend

With an abundance of rich antiquity, delectable food, and remarkable wines, Transylvania is a historical region situated at the heart of Romania. 

The people of Transylvania have been wine producers since the 1600s. Their origins can be traced back to the rule of the Roman Empire, followed by German settlers, who were the first ones to cultivate grapes at the base of the Carpathian Mountains. 

As you can guess, Transylvania’s perfect weather and fertile soil are what make it one of the most suitable places for producing wine, and the Liliac Winery is just one amidst the list of many other wineries located there. 

Liliac Winery is a collaborative creation of the advanced winemaking processes of Austria and the deep cultural roots of grape farming in Transylvania. The hand-picked grapes and the innovative vinification technique adopted by the oenologists of Lilac Winery is what makes their wine so unique. With 52 hectares of two separate vineyards – Lechința and Batoș, the wine is made under optimum conditions which will best extract the flavor and fragrance from the grapes. 

The Batoș Vineyard grows the best mix of grapes that helps to make the most complex and eccentric flavored red, rose, and white wines in Liliac Winery. The soil is extremely fertile and holds great volumes of water with substantial fluctuations in temperature during the night and day. 

Lechinta Vineyard, on the other hand, has ideal conditions especially suited for making white wines. There is a fair balance of warmth and coolness throughout the day, providing the best cultivation conditions. The beguiling aroma and acidity of the grapes are upheld by the late summertime mists, creating top-notch bottles of white wine in Liliac Winery. Every bottle of wine produced by Liliac Winery is full-flavored top-drawer wine and keeping the scenic beauty of Transylvania and the art of winemaking in mind, this winery should be on top of every wine enthusiasts travel list. So, if you are passionate about making a trip to one of the finest award-winning wineries in the world, Liliac Winery could be a good place to start, for it is only 14 km away from Batos.

Liliac Winery
Wine tasting

The gentle hills that remind us of Tuscany hills and the numerous streams are intertwined on the green hills. The land which is rich in minerals and the temperate continental climate contribute profusely here, at the shelter in the Carpathian arc, to the rich harvests of grapes. At the wine-tasting cottage, which is hidden amidst the vineyards, there is a stunning, breathtaking scenery that lies ahead of you. The Saxon church towers that rise in the midst of the houses in Batos village seem to remind us of the bygone days which bestow a certain beauty upon the place. Here, at Liliac winery you can taste wines obtained from domestic varieties as well as foreign ones.

Wine & Food Pairing Basics

Pairing food with a complimentary wine makes it taste even more delicious. But is there more to it than matching white wines with fish and red wines with steak? Of course!
Here are a few basic tips for matching meal courses with the perfect wine:

– Pair intense wines with heavy dishes, such as beef and lamb
– Pair lighter wines with light dishes, such as salad or chicken
– Desserts pair well with sweet wines or dessert wines
– Consider whether flavours are bitter, acidic, sweet, salty or spicy
– Focus on sauces and cooking methods, not just the main ingredient

You can either ‘complement’ or ‘contrast’ when pairing food and wine. For example, choose an earthy red wine to complement a rich mushroom dish, or contrast an acidic white wine with a creamy fish sauce. Neither the food nor the wine should overwhelm each other.
