More about this wine
Founded in 1870 by Jaime Torres, Bodegas Torres is located in Pacs, about 4 km from Villafranca del Penedes. Torres is the family winery with the largest vineyards in Penedès and the largest winery in Spain. The family also runs the Miguel Torres Chile winery in the central Chilean valley, as well as the Marimar Estate, founded in 1986 in the United States (California). In Spain outside the Penedès, they own vineyards in DO Conca de Barberà, DO Toro, DO Jumilla, DO Ribera del Duero, DOQ Priorat and more recently in DOC Rioja - in the last three areas with new wineries or wineries under construction. Torres is also the largest producer of DO wines in Spain with its own label, exporting to more than 140 countries. Jaime Torres emigrated to Cuba in 1855, where he managed to amass wealth, and in 1870, returning home as a wealthy man, he began business with his brother, a vine grower. Together they founded the family company in Villafranca del Penedes in 1870. During the Spanish Civil War, the winery was bombed and left in ruins. Miguel Torres Carbo, the fourth generation of the family, rebuilt the winery in 1940 and started the business again. He stopped selling bulk wine and started bottling with his own labels. During the occupation of France, sales there were hampered and Miguel Torres traveled to the United States to promote his wines. During this period, the Sangre de Toro, Viña Sol and Coronas brands appeared for the first time. In 1966, work began on the planting of international varieties - Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, and later Merlot, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Gewürztraminer. That same year, Miguel A. Torres married Waltraud Makasek, a German artist who actively helped sell wines on the German market. The first Riesling produced by Torres was named after her. In 1975, Bodegas Torres began growing organic wine grapes. In 1991, after the death of Miguel Torres, the winery passed into the hands of his son Miguel A. Torres, the current president and managing director of the company. Under the Torres brand, they trade in wine and brandy under various labels. Some of them are Vinya Sol, Sangre de Toro, De Casta, Coronas, Atrium and Vinya Esmeralda, and among their most famous brands are Torres 5 and Torres 10.All wines of the same producer
The name Catalonia DO was established in 1999 and covers all vineyards that are not covered by any of the other 11 DOs in the region. These are Emporda, Costers del Segre, Pla de Bages, Alella, Cava, Penedes, Conca de Barbera, Tarragona, Montsant and Terra Alta DOs and Priorat, DOCa (Denomination of Origen Calificada, the highest classification). Catalonia is considered different from other wine-growing regions in Spain due to the flexibility of its wine styles. It has a strong French influence on two of the most recognizable wines - Champagne-style sparkling cava and red table wines, which have similar characteristics to those produced in Roussillon, just across the Pyrenees. The main grape varieties are Tempranillo (known in Catalan as Ull de Llebre), Garnacha and Monastrell (French Mourvedre), but the red varieties from Bordeaux also play an important role in some of the highest quality blends as well as in varietal wines. Although there are numerous reasons for the success of Catalonia's wine industry, Cava has played an important role. In the 1870s, Jose Raventos began producing sparkling wines around the town of Sant Sadurní d'Anoia in Penedes, using the traditional method. The success of this wine was so great that the region became the center of Cava production in Spain and in 1986 became DO.More wines of this region
Grenache (Garnacha) is a red-wine grape grown extensively in France, Spain, Australia and the United States. Grenache is the French name for the grape, while in Spain it is known as Garnacha, and on the island of Sardinia they call it Cannonau. In France it is most commonly found in the classic Southern Rhone Blend ( it is the main grape variety in Chateauneuf-du-Pape) but also plays a main role in one of southern France's signature Rosè wine style in Provence. In Spain, Garnacha is the key constituent in the prestigious wines of Priorat.More wines of the same variety
