In 1979, the Spanish company Torres acquired a small winery in Curicó, in the Chilean Central Valley, and became the first foreign company that produces wines from Chilean grapes grown in a unique location at the foot of volcanoes in the Andes. Winery in Curico equipped with the most modern equipment, allowing winemakers to carefully monitor the entire process. The company was the first Torres winery in Chile, which began to be used in fermentation steel tanks at controlled temperatures and endurance exercise in high-quality French oak barrels.
The company was founded by Jaime Torres and Miguel Torres in 1870. Iberian Peninsula, which are located the main vineyards of the family, known for a variety of soil and climate are ideal for viticulture. From generation to generation in the family passed the secret of making wine and love of the land. This tradition, innovation and vision have turned Torres into a known company, whose products can now be found in more than 140 countries worldwide. Today Torres owns more than 1,300 hectares of vineyards, not only in Spain but also in other continents. One of the main priorities of the Torres family is to preserve for future generations the culture of viticulture. Therefore Torres pays great attention to environmental problems and their solution - cleans wastewater, is actively involved in the preservation and transplantation of regional forests, and in preserving the Bonelli eagle in Spain and the Andean condor in Chile invests research on renewable energy sources (solar panels and wind parks), hybrid cars, the study of exploitation of vineyards and forest biomass.
In January 2007, a wine expert "Wine Enthusiast" Torres named "Best European Winery of Europe 2006" for its innovation, commitment to research, for the significance in the world of wines and spirits.
