Everyone has heard of Torres. They're one of the biggest producers in the world with some serious wines to show for it. This is one of their more simple styles but it will still be one you struggle to forget.
Founded in 1870 by Jaime Torres, Bodegas Torres (Miguel Torres SA) is a historical wine growing company located in Pacs, some 4 km from Vilafranca del Penedès, where the company has its head office. Torres is the family winery with the most extensive vineyards in the Denomination of Origin of Penedès and the largest winery in Spain.
They also run the Miguel Torres Chile winery in the Chilean Central Valley, and in the United States (California) where in 1986 Marimar Torres founded Marimar Estate. In Spain outside of the Torres family's native Penedès region, they own vineyards in DO Conca de Barberà, DO Toro, DO Jumilla, DO Ribera del Duero, DOQ Priorat and most recently in DOC Rioja - in the last three areas with new wineries or wineries under construction. Likewise, Torres is also Spain's largest producer of DO wines under its own label, exporting to more than 140 countries.

The Celeste combines a pronounced intensity with satisfying acidity and a sensuous tannic structure. It sets the bar high as an introduction to the region. Expect lots of voluptuous black fruits, silky smooth body and spicy edges. Great with any hearty meat dish.
After all of that rain maybe something like this will bring some warmth back to us all. Cheers!
