“the more we take care of the land, the better the wine we produce”
Ever since their beginners as winemakers back in 1870, the Torres Family has combined tradition and innovation to produce prestigious wines and brandies, always working with the utmost respect for the land and the environment. Harbouring deep ties to the land for more than four centuries (the first references to them as winemakers date to 1577), the family has historically possessed wineries and vineyards in the Penedès area, from which it hails, along with the Conca de Barberà, Priorat and Costers del Segre regions.
Each generation has contributed to the development of the business, transmitting to the next a passion for the culture of wine, the importance of taking care of the land, and seeking excellence. The fourth generation, with Miguel A. Torres, introduced the cultivation of Cabernet Sauvignon in Spain, creating 'Mas la Plana' red wine in 1970, while today the fifth generation focuses on the production of wines from unique vineyards and plots steeped in history, and the recovery of ancient varieties from Catalonia, and other regions in Spain and Chile. This is a project that not only makes possible the rescuing of a viticultural heritage, but also constitutes a solution for tomorrow, in a future scenario impacted by climate change, as these varieties are able to withstand high temperatures and drought conditions.
In addition to adapting to global warming, the Torres Family helps to minimise its impact by reducing CO2 emissions through the use of renewable energy, sustainable vehicles, and energy efficiency measures, among other steps.
The Torres Family is also present with its own vineyards and wineries in the main Spanish wine-growing areas (Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rueda and Rías Baixas), as well as in Chile and California. It is a member of the Primum Familiae Vini, an association comprised of 12 of the most prestigious, centuries-old wine-making families in Europe.LEARN MORE ABOUT THE TORRES FAMILY
