The Bountiful Grapes of Spain

 

The Torres Spanish wines go hand in hand with respectability and prestige. Products of the Torres Wine House can be found in more than 100 countries. A world wine-making leader, the company supplies royal families with the elite drinks.

Wine-making became a family business for the Torres clan as far back as the 17th century; it was started in the old town of Vilafranca del Penedes in the north-east of Spain. More than 1,500 hectares of the best land, the unique varieties of grapes, the latest technologies, the old-time recipes and secrets of past masters of wine making, traditions and novelties all contribute to success.

Standing at the helm of the company today is Miguel Torres. A wine-maker, who learned the finer points of his craft from family professionals and at the training centres of Spain and France, he, together with his kinsmen, is confidently carrying on with his business. During his visit to Russia, the maitre came to Moscow where he gave a press conference and carried out a tasting of the Torres vintage wines supplied to the Russian market.
