In Romania this grape variety is the embodiment of the red wine. We cultivate a style that is somehow out of the ordinary. The grapes are harvested early, before reaching full maturity.

One who dares to explore this domain will get a lot of joy. It is a brilliant red cinnabar, with a bouquet of magic and seductive flavors.

The Brutler & Lieb vineyard is a well-known local representative of natural wines. There is one variety of wines that is capable of representing the true values of the viticulture region of Beltiug and this is our Grünspitz. Grünspitz is a variety of grapes, that exists only in our region. There are no other vineyards based on this variety, so this could have vanished. A few years ago, we grafted this variety on new plants and started a new vineyard. So this is the only vineyard in the world with this variety. "The sages" of the village have considered this variety of grapes as being extremely tasty and the wine having a solid acidity and a neutral taste with a low level of alcohol. It is just perfect to be served as it is refreshing. The grapes are very small, with thick skin and mature very late.

Syrah stays close to our soul, because this variety of wine, exactly like the Blaufränkisch, has the same strength both in the cold years, as well as in the hot ones. We were the first to plant these grape varieties in Romania and we bottled it independently. Right from the first year, 2003, it proved to be a good decision. The wine from the harvest of 2015 stands out through the profoundness of the flavor in the bouquet. First of all there are notes of plums, blackberries and cranberries, with a piquancy that reminds us of pepper and black olives. In the palate it is silky, elegant and strong, without being heavy. No wonder that the most known wine of our wine cellar is produced from this variety. The Syrah is in perfect harmony with the terroir from Beltiug. The extraordinary wines produced year by year are an eloquent proof. The world of Syrah tastes is fascinating, characterized through the blend of fruity and spicy notes, while the acidity of terroir, full of character, gives this wine an unmistakable indulgence. It is the perfect companion for beef steaks, but next to beef ragout cooked in Transylvanian style is simply unbeatable.
