The roots of the Torres family in the Penedès can be traced back to the 17th century. Documents show that even in those days the ancestors of the Torres family were vintners and sold their wines on a small scale. In 1860, Jaime Torres, an enterprising man with great initiative, emigrated to Cuba at the age of eighteen. On his return In 1870 he founded “Torres y Compañia” with his brother Miguel. Their vast wine empire is still run by two generations of the Torres family. The Fransola Estate is found among the high vineyards of the Penedès in the municipality of Santa María de Miralles where they grow 25 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc used to produce Fransola, one of their most elegant white wines. This wine is unique because it is enriched with new American oak barrel fermentation followed by four months of ageing.
Fransola, Miguel Torres
Lovely, clean, brilliant, bright gold colour. Elegantly expressive aromas, with notes of fruit (passion fruit, quince) and a delicate dried fruit nuance that denotes the fine toast of the ageing barrels. Intense and silky on the palate, full of austere power.
