Clos Ancestral

Proyecto recuperación de variedades ancestrales

Penedès

Vineyards have existed around Castell de la Bleda for more than 2,000 years, a winegrowing enclave in the heart of Penedès, the region Familia Torres calls home. Iberian, Roman, and medieval vestiges have been found in the area, as well as from the time immediately before the phylloxera blight. Since the early 1980s, we have been committed to the recovery of ancestral varieties to help restore the viticultural heritage of Catalonia while seeking solutions to combat climate change. Over time we have observed how some of these varieties not only display great enological potential but are also extremely resistant to high temperatures and drought. This is true of Moneu, an ancestral variety indigenous to Penedès, which we reintroduced with plantings in the vineyards of Castell de la Bleda. The fact that we can now add Moneu to the Clos Ancestral blend fills us with great joy.
