Grapes and especially wine from same variety may be very different, depending on many factors. These attributes have the advantage that, different tastes, curiosities and demands of wine connoisseurs can be satisfied. The experiments concerning the influence of terroir on the grapes and wine quality in 'Fetească Neagră’ variety were located in the main vineyards from western Romania (Minis-Maderat, Recas and Buzias-Silagiu). The aim of the research was to found the influence of the ecological resources, type of pruning, fruit loading and age plantation on grapes quality (sugar, acidity, must yield), but also on the wine quantity and quality (liters per hectare, alcohol concentration, organoleptic characteristics, anthocyanin concentration, acidity, full-bodied). Although belongs to the same variety, the resulted wines had different characteristics on most parameters analyzed. Recas wines are fruity; those from Buzias are more obvious full bodied, while those from Minis-Maderat have higher anthocyanin pigmentation. After results analyzing, it can be concluded that in all three areas of research, terroir allowed obtaining quality wines, but with different characteristics, each bearing the mark of the origin area.
