Alira Winery


Alira is an 80-acre boutique winery, located in Dobrogea, on the hills overlooking the banks of the Old Danube. We believe in respect for nature and quality at the expense of quantity. We do all this in the hope of providing a premium experience to every customer.

The name

The name ALIRA is a merge between the names of the localities of Aliman and Rasova where our vineyards are located and where the wine is born on the banks of the Danube. This is a special place where nature works in favor of man and the only ingredients missing to make a legendary wine were passion and skill.

Alira Merlot Wine-making and maturation

Matured 12 months in oak barrel

The Alira Merlot grapes are picked manually, and then carefully selected on the sorting tables. The maceration of grapes takes between 5 and 8 days at a controlled temperature of 16 ° C. The alcoholic fermentation (100% by the addition of selected yeast) is controlled at 26-28 ° C for another 8-10 days, followed by hot maceration (thermo-maceration) between 5 and 8 days. Aging was done for about 12 months in French oak.


Best enjoyed at 18 degrees, at least 30 minutes after opening. Can be stored for up to 10 years at a temperature of 13 degrees, away from light, in a horizontal position.

Food Pairing

Rabbit Stew, Lasagna, Beef Wellington

Being an elegant Merlot with spice-flavored appetizers and a sweet aftertaste, it fits with juicy meat-based dishes with discrete flavors (rabbit, veal). The gourmet notes also complement the Italian inspired dishes, with rich sauces such as pasta or lasagna. May be a pleasant surprise alongside beef hamburgers.

    Slightly okay. Black currents and berries on nose and palette. Vibrant and smooth tannins. Good wine at this price point.
