About Familia Torres
Our family has been dedicated to wine for five generations. We celebrate life, care for the earth and carry on our legacy: this is our vision.
We began producing wine in Penedès in 1870, although our winegrowing roots date back to the 16th century, and we’ve been fortunate enough that each generation has felt the same devotion to and love for the land. Ours has been, and is, a life lived among the vines, weaving an inseparable connection to the landscapes of wine.
The wines we make today under the name Familia Torres represent a mosaic of properties that are largely historical, with winegrowing associations that reach far into the past. We know that the same lands we work today were already being cultivated hundreds or even thousands of years ago. We feel lucky and, at the same time, responsible for ensuring that these vines and landscapes continue to speak through the wines that are made from them — honest and exuberant wines with an emphasis on elegance and a unique sense of place.
The first references to our family as winegrowers date back to 1559, but it wasn’t until 1870 that the brothers Jaime and Miguel Torres Vendrell founded the winery in Vilafranca del Penedès, with its focus on exportation.
We’re two generations running the winery, sharing the same vision. Our hope is that at some point in the future the sixth generation will also feel the call of the vineyards and carry on this exciting wine-growing adventure.
Over the past 150 years, we have preserved our identity as a family winery, passing down, from parents to children, a passion for wine culture based on a deep respect for the land and tradition and a commitment to innovation.
