Miguel Torres was one of the first foreign investors to buy land in Chile attracted by the special climatic conditions of this region. In 1979 Torres purchased one hundred hectares of vineyard and a winery in the Curica area. With him, Miguel Torres brought his familys long tradition of wine-making and over one hundred years of company history. The Chilean Central Valley has an ideal climate for top quality growing. The region is dominated by the presence of the Andes, its peaks crowned with permanent snow. The difference in temperatures between day and night make for optimum development of the grapes and increase their ability to retain the finest aromas.
