Bodegas Miguel Torres, founded in 1870, has always been one of the most consistently quality-orientated wineries in Spain as well as one of the largest and most innovative.
The Torres family has been making wine in the ancient Catalán town of Vilafranca del Penedès, South-West of Barcelona, since the 19th Century. Its renowned tradition of combining innovation, dynamism and a commitment to high quality has put Torres firmly on the world map. Torres remains independent and family-owned, run by fourth and fifth generation members of the Torres family and is presided over by Miguel A. Torres Riera.
Miguel A. Torres Riera has been described as "one of Spain's most innovative and influential winemakers". As well as being one of the first exponents of stainless-steel tanks and temperature controlled fermentation, he also pioneered the planting of non-Spanish grape varieties and in recent years led the re-discovery of ancient Catalan grape varieties.
International recognition came in 1979 with the 1970 vintage of a wine then known as Gran Coronas Black Label.
This first vintage of Torres's Cabernet-based wine won the famous Gault-Millau Paris Wine Olympiad tasting in 1979, in which Torres topped such wines as Chateau Latour and a number of other famous Bordeaux Chateaux.
Following the introduction of Torres first wines from Ribera del Duero and Priorat in 2005, Torres continues to innovate with the launch of its Crianza level Rioja in 2009.
Ibericos Crianza embodies a long tradition in winemaking while projecting an image that is wholly innovative and modern. Along with recent purchases of land in Jumilla and Toro, this represents a significant departure from Torres’s Catalan heartland.
