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.
“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.

Brilliant pale straw yellow. Fragrant, floral (orange blossom), with delicate nuances of exotic fruit (cherimoya) and a note of apple jam. Smooth and exquisitely luscious on the palate, leaving a subtle honeyed trace.
Food Pairing: Sublime with seafood appetizers, fish and pâté. Well worth trying with Asian food. Serve at 11ºC.
