De Casta Rosado (Rose)

Born to be rosé

“On his travels during the 1940s, my father noticed that the world’s best wine tasters were eager for him to produce a rosé that was different from those traditionally made at the time. After years of experimentation, he made De Casta, an exquisite wine full of fruit, born to be rosé. We proudly produce the wine to this day.”

(Miguel A. Torres) After years of study and inspired by the rocks surrounding our vineyards, Miguel Torres Carbó – a pioneer of his time – made a wine out of his desire to create a unique rosé. The experimenting done with the red garnacha and cariñena varieties now forty years ago have brought us a rosé wine with its own personality, an intense colour and fruity aromas.

Description

DO Catalunya

We are privileged to have an important variety of climates and soils in a relatively small area.

The most renowned stocks grow in these lands with very varied climates and soils. These grapes give rise to exceptional wines that have positioned the region in the eyes of all quality enthusiasts. The first Torres winery was built in Catalonia and, encouraged by this thousand-year-old culture, Torres began its expansion by paying homage to the best vineyards in the world, selecting the best estates and seeking the local identity of each land.

Каталония D.O.

“During the early 1960s, after completing my viticulture and oenology studies in France, I wanted to put into practice what I had learned in Dijon. At a small winery in Pontons, a mountainous area where the nights are very cold, I first fermented grapes at a low temperature to obtain a fresher and more aromatic white wine. This fortunate discovery provided the basis for what is now Viña Sol, which we continue to make with utmost care to this day, half a century later.” M. A. Torres.

Grape varieties: Mainly Garnacha and Cariñena
