The more we care for the earth, the better our wine

Torres & Earth

Our deep commitment to nature conservation and environmental protection, as well as our desire to keep making outstanding wines, inspired us to launch the Torres & Earth program in 2008.
 

The goal of this environmental action program is twofold: adapting our activity to climate change and reducing our carbon emissions to help mitigate it.

 

During this time, we have lowered our carbon emissions by more than a quarter, but we want to do more. The ultimate goal is for our activity to become carbon neutral.

 

We are taking the following steps to make this a reality.

 

At Familia Torres, we are implementing several projects and actions to help mitigate climate change. These are just a few examples. If you are interested in knowing more, please get in touch or visit our winery in Pacs del Penedès (Barcelona).

Mitigation

Mitigation efforts are aimed at reducing the emissions responsible for climate change in order to curb rising temperatures and prevent worst-case scenarios.
