Producer Information: Miguel Torres

THE TORRES FAMILY HAS BEEN CULTIVATING ITS OWN VINEYARDS IN THE PENEDèS EVER SINCE THE 17TH CENTURY.

BY 1870 THE PRODUCTS OF OUR BODEGAS HAD ALREADY REACHED MARKETS IN EUROPE AND AMERICA, AND THOSE INTREPID CAPTAINS FROM SITGES AND VILANOVA, WHO TRANSPORTED OUR WINES, WERE MOORING THEIR SHIPS IN CARTAGENA DE INDIAS, SANTIAGO DE CUBA, VERACRUZ, BREMEN, HAMBURG AND ST. PETERSBURG.

IT WAS IN THE FIRST HALF OF THIS CENTURY THAT MIGUEL TORRES CARBó FINALLY LAUNCHED THE WINES AND BRANDIES OF OUR FIRM ON AN INTERNATIONAL SCALE. OVERCOMING THE CRISES OF THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR AND WORLD WAR II, WITH INTELLIGENT AND INSPIRED PERSEVERANCE HE EXPANDED HIS VINEYARDS, EXCAVATED NEW UNDERGROUND AGEING FACILITIES, MODERNISED THE WINERY AND PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES, AND - WITH THE AID OF HIS WIFE, MARGARITA - LAID THE FOUNDATIONS FOR A GREAT EXPORTING ENTERPRISE.

1979 SAW THE ESTABLISHMENT OF TORRES BODEGAS IN THE CENTRAL VALLEY OF CHILE (CURICó), WHERE EXCELLENT WINES FROM NOBLE VARIETIES ARE NOW PRODUCED IN A NATURALLY PRIVILEGED CLIMATE.

IN 1983 WE ACQUIRED 25 HA. OF VINEYARD IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA (APPELLATION SONOMA COUNTY - GREEN VALLEY), WHICH NOW PRODUCES THE ELEGANT MARIMAR TORRES CHARDONNAY AND PINOT NOIR.

TODAY, AFTER SO MANY CENTURIES, TORRES WINES CONTINUE TO BE EXPORTED TO OVER 115 COUNTRIES ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
