Winemaking

Verdejo - Native and exclusive to the region of Rueda, it produces high quality fruity white wines.


Winery information:

The first Torres winery was built in Catalonia and, encouraged by this thousand-year-old culture, Torres began its expansion by paying homage to the best vineyards in the world, selecting the best estates and seeking the local identify of each land.

On 12 January 1980, D.O. Rueda was recognised as the first appellation of origin in the autonomous region of Castilla y León

This wine-making area is situated in the highest part of the northern meseta right in the heart of the Duero high plateau.  It extends across the provinces of Valladolid, Segovia and Ávila. The alluvial, iron-rich soil features very good drainage. It has a continental climate with cold winters and hot summers. These characteristics are ideal for growing native white varieties like Viura, Sauvignon Blanc and, in particular, the Verdejo variety.

Ever since it became the first area in Spain to use stainless steel and cold fermentation equipment, the vine growers of the Penedès have been making excellent modern wines from a mix of native and French grape varieties. This has been possible because of the variety of altitudes, lands and micro-climates found in the Penedès which foster the ideal growth of the different grape types.

The first Torres winery was built in Catalonia and, encouraged by this thousand-year-old culture, Torres began its expansion by paying homage to the best vineyards in the world, selecting the best estates and seeking the local identify of each land.



Tasting Note:

Pale gold with glints of green. Intense and fragrant, it offers clean floral notes (lemon blossom) against an enticing ripe fruit backdrop (quince, pear). The palate is silky and smooth, displaying the fresh herbaceous expression (fennel) that is the hallmark of the best Verdejo wines.

Food Recommendation:

Ideal for aperitif, it also goes perfectly with shellfish and fresh fish in exotic sauces. Serve at 8-10ºC.
