A surname linked to the wine world for more than three centuries: founded in 1870, Familia Torres is widely regarded as one of the world’s most innovative wineries. They are also one of Spain’s leading producers of premium quality wines – a position which was recognised when they were presented with ‘The World’s Most Admired Wine Brand’ award.
For over 30 years, Familia Torres has been committed to an ambitious project: the recovery of ancestral varieties that had disappeared after the phylloxera devastation of the 19th century. In restoring part of Catalonia’s vinicultural tradition, the fifth generation of Familia Torres looks toward the future, seeking authenticity and producing exceptional wines that are uniquely special. Forcada is the first variety in this collection. Initially rediscovered in the Ripollès area, this white grape now grows in Alt Penedès. It is a surprisingly fresh and aromatically intense variety.
The Forcada grape is surprising in its aromas, intensity and freshness. Spicy notes are reminiscent of a Mediterranean forest, while hints of iris and citrus are anchored in a clear, vibrant finish.
