In 2020, Familia Torres Winery is celebrating their 150th anniversary, but the family's roots extend even farther than that. The first mention of the Torres wine family was in 1557, but the winery wasn't established until 1870, when the profits from the family shipping company made it possible to enter the commercial wine space.Miguel Torres Vendrell founded the company, and since then, the family has passed on the winery (and the name Miguel) steadfastly from generation to generation. They hit a setback when the winery was bombed during the Spanish civil war, but Miguel Torres i Carbf3 rebuilt, and began the bottling and exporting of the wine.In 1991, Miguel A. Torres took the reigns, and remains president today. He made remarkable strides in environmental advocacy, social responsibility, fair trade, and research and innovation. Since 2012, Miguel Torres Maczassek has been at the helm, and has continued his father's work, while also embarking on his own projects. Recognized year after year and Drinks Internationals' "World's Most Admired Wine Brand," the story of Familia Torres is a known and respected one throughout Spain and the world.
