HistoryBacked by a history rooted in winemaking culture in Spain, Miguel Torres Chile arrived in the Curicó Valley in 1979. Ever since their arrival in Chile, they've gone to every corner of the country in search of the best places to make unique wines. On this journey, as well as finding excellent climatic conditions, the family has committed to innovating in wine production, incorporating stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels.
Today, Miguel Torres Chile also focuses its commitment on organic vine-growing and Fair Trade certification for various wines. These advances have helped the company to become more sustainable, and to implement several sustainable projects.
Miguel Torres Chile maintains the cornerstone concepts that have marked its history and production chain: Fair Trade, organic farming, and innovation.
The company has worked to recover traditional varieties almost forgotten in Chile, such as País, Carignan, and Muscat, using small suppliers from rain-fed areas. Cordillera Carignan, Estelado Rosé, Reserva de Pueblo, and Días de Verano are among the products associated with this kind of project.
Throughout Chile, their wineries have forged an identity and created unique products according to their climate, providing Miguel Torres Chile with varieties with the typical vinestocks and flavours of this country.
