Miguel Torres celebrates 40 years in Chile

Forty years ago, in 1979, the Spanish Torres family began making wine in Chile, in the small region of Curicó, 200 kilometres south of Santiago. At that time, Chile’s viticulture was still in its infancy and there is no doubt that Torres in various ways helped to accelerate development. Torres introduced new, modern production methods, gave new life to almost forgotten grape varieties, developed organic and sustainable cultivation and fair trade.

Today, the Torres family owns 400 hectares of vineyards in Chile, in the Maule and Bío Bío regions. I remember when I met Miguel Torres Maczassek (Miguel A. Torres’s son) on location in Curicó a few years ago. That he liked making wine in Chile was evident. “It’s different here than in Spain, where it’s stricter,” he said. “Here we can work more freely, with new grape varieties, new technology.” He also praised the excellent climate in Chile: “You really have to be a bad winemaker to make bad wine in Chile.” We say congratulations!
