An awesome time at the Vineyards of Torres Wines
The Long tradition of wine making from the Torres Family
While in Barcelona for a few days on work, I was invited to go on a wine tasting tour at La Torres Winery. What do you think I responded, when asked if I wanted to go or not? Well of course I said that I would definitely go! Boy was it the most awesome time at their huge and impressive vineyards, vinification center, cellars and wine tasting place!
The train takes you to a few of their vineyards and the wine guide explains in a lot of detail, certain processes, climate, temperature, topography and so much more. Their vineyards have been spanning through a lot of different areas in Spain, which has given them the amazing amount of different flavors and wine textures.
Established in 1870 by Jaime Torres, the 5th generation of the Torres family now takes great care of the huge and successful wine company that they have created. Torres wines are extremely popular around Europe, and wether you are a wine connoiseur or someone that enjoys wine while eating at a restaurant, you have for sure come across wines from Torres.
That was one of the few reasons I was excited to visit them, as Torres wines were a few of my first wines that I had grabbed hold of at home in Malta.
The cellars and the vinification systems were stupendous, and the undergound cellar was spectacular. I wanted to set a desk and a bed right there, so that I could work and sleep in front of that gorgeous view.
However, it was time for our wine tasting, and the venue and the view did not disappoint again. We started with the whites.
There were 3 whites, but the Las Mulas stood out for me with its rich taste. It could fo very well with most fish dishes amd lean white meat. I loved it, just as I loved their rose wine. It was so fresh and had a great berry taste.
Next, was 4 red wines. Yesss!! Red is my favorite, and I could say that they were all my favorite. There uniques taste were all do satisfying to the palatte. The Rioja wines were amazing and Celeste was a team favorite.
It was time to leave this beautiful place, but I wouldn’t think twice to going again and experience it all over again.
