Great vineyards give rise to exceptional wines. This is the root of the Torres family which can be traced back to the 17th century in Penedès, Spain. The family tradition of small production, values of excellence, and philosophy of scrupulous respect for the land has been passed down from father to son through five generations.
Named the "World's Most Admired Wine Brand" for several years, the Torres family mission is founded on a single objective: “from the soil to the table, we create exceptional wines, with the aim of encouraging memorable experiences in every corner of the world”. Experience these superb Spanish wines paired to perfection with Chef's regional recipes for an unforgettable four (4) course meal featuring Torres wines!
