Lechinţa is a small village located in Transylvania and is best known for Liliac Winery’s white wine production. Lechinţa DOC can actually be made up of grapes cultivated across several villages, all located among the gentle foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. Viticulture has been a feature of the area for years but like everywhere else in Romania the wine scene has seen decades of stagnation. Only now is Transylvania beginning to rebuild its reputation and Lechinţa will arguably be the first appellation of significance to emerge.
