Overview

Sangre de Toro is a red wine from the D.O Catalunya produced by Torres, probably the most famous Spanish winery on the international scene. This is a blend of Garnacha and Cariñena.

The name Sangre de Toro (blood of the bull) is meant to be a homage to Bacchus, a Roman God of wine known also as The son of the Bull.

After the traditional methods of harvesting and producing the wines, Sangre de Toro rests for 6 months in American oak barrels.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Founded in 1870 by Jaime Torres, Bodegas Torres (Miguel Torres SA) is a historical wine growing company located in Pacs, some 4 km from Vilafranca del Penedès, where the company has its head office. At the present time Torres is the family winery with the most extensive vineyards in the Denomination of Origin (DO) of Penedès. They also run the Miguel Torres Chile winery in the Chilean Central Valley, and in the United States (California) where in 1986 Marimar Torres founded Marimar Estate. In Spain outside of the Torres family's native Penedès region, they own vineyards in DO Conca de Barberà, DO Toro, DO Jumilla, DO Ribera del Duero, DOQ Priorat and most recently in DOC Rioja - in the last three areas with new wineries or wineries under construction. Likewise, Torres is also Spain's largest producer of DO wines under its own label, exporting to more than 140 countries.

Under the Torres brand name they trade wine based on a range of different labels, as well as brandies. Some of these are Viña Sol, Sangre de Toro, De Casta, Coronas, Atrium and Viña Esmeralda, with their best known brandies being Torres 5 and Torres 10. Many Torres wines are produced from international rather than traditional Spanish grape varieties and are varietally labelled.

This company is currently managed by the fourth generation of the Torres family.
