- DO Penedès is a broad, open appellation that stretches across a swathe of land between the sea and mountains, midway between Barcelona and Tarragona. The influence of the sun and the Mediterranean Sea makes Penedès an exceptional region for wine growing. Its unique nature is responsible for the diversity of DO Penedès wines, with the differences in climate, landscape, and soil resulting in a thousand flavors and aromas.
This range comprises our most emblematic wines, selected for their exceptional provenance and the exclusivity of the winemaking process. Five extraordinary wines that speak the same language by reflecting the truest expression of their vineyards of origin and the effort to bestow each one with an incomparable identity.
Thanks to the investment that has been made in research and development in both viticulture and winemaking by the 4th and 5th generation members of the family, Familia Torres has gained an enviable reputation for their subtle blending of tradition with innovation. Today the winery produces a comprehensive range of different styles, all of which bear the Torres hallmark of quality. The range includes very accessible styles such as Viña Sol, which has held the position of the UK’s number one branded Spanish white wine for many years, to complex, iconic wines such as Reserva Real a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Familia Torres are also known for their Super Premium and Reserva wines such as Fransola, Altos Ibericos, Celeste and Milmanda – all of which have become benchmarks in their own right. Other wines within the range demonstrate Torres’ determination to be at the forefront of innovation and winemaking development. One such one is Purgatori from the Costers del Segre appellation. Made from a limited production of Garnacha, Cariñena and Syrah grapes from the estate in L’Aranyó, this wine derives its unique character from the continental climate and extremely arid conditions of the region. Another example is Sons de Prades, a new Chardonnay varietal from the famous Milmanda vineyards (DO Conca de Barberà) which is produced in relatively small quantities for the independent retail and restaurant sectors, where it has developed a strong following.
