Fautor Wines.

One of the company’s strengths is owning a unique portfolio or rare varieties, but especially word exclusive blends.  Fautor wines are produced from manually harvested and selected grapes, processed by a traditional method, based on the strictest canons of French viniculture. Before fermentation, the grapes are cooled to obtain a high quality wine, then the fermentation is repeated.

After aging in the barrels, the wine is bottled in a cold room, under sterile conditions, with natural cork stoppers as it continues its aging in the bottle for another 6 months.

The cellars.

Within the years of 2003 – 2006 the winery has been equipped with advanced technology and new vineyards have been plated to reach its present size of 350 ha. Fautor wines are aged exclusively in French new oak barrels. Depending on the grape type, the aging periods vary from 6 to 18 months, while the wine becomes rich in tannins and aromatic components. This gives the aroma of elegant wood, vanilla, and chocolate notes to the taste.

Fautor Winery.

Both winery and the vineyards are situated in Tigheci microzone, as part of viticulture and vinemaking area “Valul lui Traian” (PGI), South of Moldova. Tigheci microzone is absolutely unique, being one of the best area of producing hight quality wines both white and red.

The family company “Fautor” was founded in the late XXth century. The path traveled was marked by awards and achievements, but at the basis of success stands the experience and enthusiasm of the family members.

Fautor Winery is situated within Tigheci microzone, which is absolutely unique in Europe.

„In the glass we have a well-ripe wheat ear color, abundant in blooming acacia aromas, light yellow fruits and vanilla notes. An excellent blend between primary flavors and barrel maturation; perfect integration of wine and wood.” Andrei Cibotaru, blogger


„For a wooden-aged Sauvignon Blanc, this easily retains its character and personality. The balance is impeccable. I found myself liking this more and more with each sip.”
Robert Parker Wine Advocate, USA – 90 points awarded.

„In NEGRE there are two very interesting varieties: red fruit flavors of Rara Neagră, along with the fruity shades of Feteasca, but also a bit of oak, which gives it more structure. Finally, the three components are beautifully blended into a smart wine.” Robert Joseph, Wine Expert, Great Britain
