Torres Gran Vina Sol is a wine white from the Cataluyna DO made by one of the most famous, family-owned wine companies in the world.
The Torres family has been making wine in the ancient Catalán town of Vilafranca del Penedès, south-west of Barcelona, since the 17th Century. It is this tradition combined with innovation, dynamism and commitment to quality that has put Torres firmly on the world map. In 2006 Torres were awarded European Winery of the Year in Wine Enthusiast’s Annual Wine Star Awards.
Torres Gran Vina Sol is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes. Gran Vina Sol was one of the first wines in Spain to pioneer the use of barrel-fermentation for Chardonnay wines. Today, however, the wine is fermented in stainless steel and spends 6 months resting on its lees. The result is a radiant, Mediterranean wine.
Don’t forget it’s little brother, the Torres Vina Sol.
