Viña Esmeralda

Mediterranean Classic

In the mountainous area of the Upper Penedès the more delicate and aromatic white grape varieties are grown. Moscatel and Gewürtztraminer form the basis for Viña Esmeralda, an exceptionally delicate and strikingly fragrant wine.

We’re particularly proud of our white wines. The production of these types of pure, clean and seductive wines, as we see them today, was quite difficult for our ancestors. However, we now know the secret and have the resources to maintain the fruit properties and transform them into unique, refreshing and elegant wines with a little help from the climate, the land, our well-cared for grapevines and experience.

The Mediterranean breeze blends with the scent of roses, which grow around our vineyards further inland, to bring us our most cherished gem: Viña Esmeralda.

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.

Moscatel: Meaty and thick, this grape produces aromatic dry wines and delicious sweet wines.

Gewürztraminer: It has a characteristic primary aroma which attains aromatic splendour following fermentation with a smell of roses, lychees, acacia and jasmine.
