From its origins as winegrowers in 1870, Familia Torres has combined tradition and innovation with the aim of making premium wine and brandy, always with the utmost respect for the environment. Rooted in the Penedès near Barcelona for more than three centuries, Familia Torres historically has wineries and vineyards in the Penedès, Conca de Barberà, Priorat, and Costers del Segre regions of Spain.
The protection of the land and environment, the pursuit of excellence and the passion for wine culture has been passed down from generation to generation. Fourth generation family member Miguel A. Torres pioneered the planting of Cabernet Sauvignon in Spain, creating ‘Mas la Plana’ in 1970, and today’s fifth generation is focused on recovering ancestral Catalan, Spanish and Chilean varieties and continuing to make top quality wines from unique and special vineyards.
Familia Torres is also present in Chile, California and other iconic Spanish regions with singular wines and vineyards. Torres is a member of Primum Familiae Vini (also an IMW Supporter), an association of 11 wine families who are among the most prestigious wine producers of their regions.
“Familia Torres through 5 generations has always supported gastronomy and the sommelier community both going hand in hand. As producers, our recognition among wine lovers is the result of the work of sommeliers, who share their passion so that our wines reflect their real meaning. Sommeliers are the ones taking the terroir, vineyards and the personality of a wine to the table, offering an exciting journey to the complex world of wine. By supporting this competition of excellence, we simply wanted to show our support and recognition to this beautiful profession of the sommelier.”
