Producer: In 2020, Familia Torres Winery is celebrating their 150th anniversary, but the family’s roots extend even farther than that. The first mention of the Torres wine family was in 1557, but the winery wasn’t established until 1870, when the profits from the family shipping company made it possible to enter the commercial wine space. Miguel Torres Vendrell founded the company, and since then, the family has passed on the winery (and the name Miguel) steadfastly from generation to generation. They hit a setback when the winery was bombed during the Spanish civil war, but Miguel Torres i Carbó rebuilt, and began the bottling and exporting of the wine. n 1991, Miguel A. Torres took the reigns, and remains president today. He made remarkable strides in environmental advocacy, social responsibility, fair trade, and research and innovation. Since 2012, Miguel Torres Maczassek has been at the helm, and has continued his father’s work, while also embarking on his own projects. Recognized year after year and Drinks Internationals’ “World’s Most Admired Wine Brand,” the story of Familia Torres is a known and respected one throughout Spain and the world.

Vineyard and Winemaking: Located in the heart of Penedès in the subzone of Turons de Vilafranca and flanked by the Foix River and its tributary the Riera de Llitrà, the 29-hectare vineyard is distributed across ten plots on two levels. The lower level has loamy soils whereas the higher level is predominantly marlstone. The old Cabernet vines, planted in the 1970s, have adapted well to the region and produce balanced wines influenced by the Mediterranean climate. Today, the Mas La Plana estate is a natural ecosystem teaming with life owing to the benefits of regenerative viticulture. This innovative approach to winegrowing is aimed at recovering the natural fertility of the soil, preventing erosion, and encouraging biodiversity while increasing the vineyard’s capacity to capture atmospheric CO2 in the fight against climate change.
