In Romania, there is a saying stating that it is the man who sanctifies the place. But sometimes the place already has everything it needs. When a man finds such a place, he takes care of it with love, passion and attention to detail, thinking about the future and what will be harvested from this land. The place where ALIRA wines capture their essence is like that, a countryside where the heat from Dobrogea meets the valley of the Old Danube forming the perfect alliance necessary for great viticulture. The wine was named “ALIRA”, as a tribute given to the communities of Aliman and Rasova, near which the new vineyard was planted. Be it a Cabernet Sauvignon or Fetească Neagră, Rose, Tribun or Cuvée Red Cliff, be it the high-end range named ALIRA Grand Vin, wine tasters have experienced the passion, dedication, competence in the glass and, above all, a great wine.
