Miguel Torres

The winery is located in Maquehua near the city of Curicó in the area of the same name in the Valle Central region of Chile. It was founded in 1979 by Miguel A. Torres (fourth family generation), the current president of the Spanish wine house Torres. He was the first in Chile to introduce stainless steel tanks and barrique barrels and played a major role in the upswing of viticulture. The vineyards cover a total of about 400 hectares. They are spread over several vineyards in different wine-growing areas, which are far apart from each other. These are Curicó, Empedrado, Elqui, Itata, Maipo, Maule and Secano Interior.
