The Fautor Winery is a family business that creates wines that inspire and evoke joy. The winery encourages a beautiful lifestyle and the approach of looking at wine through the prism of art.
The name Fautor comes from Latin and symbolizes “creator” given that the work in vine-yards and in wineries is a permanent process of creation. Double “F” framed in a shield on the wine emblem represents the Fautor family and suggests the idea of safety and the consumer’s confidence in the quality of the final product.
The winery’s vineyards cover an area of 350 ha which is located in the South of the Re-public of Moldova, within the Valul lui Traian winegrowing region. The vineyards include both international and local varieties (Feteasca Regală, Feteasca Neagră, Rara Neagră) and two unique varieties (Albariño and Tempranillo), which are unique to this area. The factors allowing Fautor Winery to create unique wines in the world are the terroir, the indigenous varieties, and the innovative approach. The special terroir of the Fautor vineyards is created by the Codrii Tigheci forest reservation and the terraces of Prut River, which also delimits the border between Romania and the Republic of Moldova.
The winery focuses on the production of premium quality wines, which yearly obtain international distinctions and enjoy the appreciation of consumers from various countries. Three years in a row, 2017 through 2019, the Fautor Winery has qualified as “the most awarded wine company of the republic of Moldova” due to obtaining the highest haul of medals at international competitions. The high scores obtained from Robert Parker Wine Advocate for a number of wines from the winery’s portfolio have opened a new page in the history of wines from the Republic of Moldova.
