UK Wine Show 240 Miguel Torres, growing up in Spains 1st wine family
This show was published 14 January 2011
The Torres family first started making wine in Penedes in 1870, five generations ago, and today make wine in many regions of Northern Spain as well as in Chile and California. Miguel Torres junior recalls his childhood days and his first introduction to wine involving bread soaked with wine and sugar and drinking unfermented grape juice from the winery! Miguel has an MBA but also studied oenology and has of course had hands-on experience picking grapes and making wine. He is now president of Miguel Torres Chile.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
