Alira The Story

Our vineyards are located in the Colinele Dobrogei wine region, situated in the Dobrogea Plateau, an area nestled between the Danube River and the Black Sea. It is a region characterized by a plateau terrain that alternates with lower-altitude areas. Here, a humid continental climate prevails, which is conducive to the development of steppe and pontic forest-steppe vegetation, making it ideal for grape cultivation.

The soil is rich in microelements, with loess deposits being predominant in this area. Loess is a yellowish clayey rock, interrupted by appearances of sarmatic limestone.

All these terroir elements provide the best possible conditions for the growth of high-quality grapevines, resulting in slow ripening and ultimately yielding rich, fruity wines with a perfect balance, both in terms of structure and aroma. This is exactly what we aim for: to produce excellent wines for people who deserve them. Because when someone tastes our wines, they don't just experience the powerful aromas or complex structure; they also feel the story behind the wines, the dedicated work of each person who has invested effort, time, and passion to provide an extraordinary moment: Alira wines.
