Production within this ranking has certainly not been easy, given the different variables to control and the number of wineries.

For this reason, Drinks International benefited from the cooperation of a special jury of more than 200 sommeliers, Masters of Wine, wine makers and journalists worldwide.

For decision making process, different criteria were taken into account, such as consistent quality vintage after vintage, that the wine reflects its region or country of origin, that the winery is capable of satisfying the needs and demands of its target market, and appeals to a wide demographic.

In this sense, the jury recognised the quality and diversity of products, coupled with the overall vision and family tradition linked to Bodegas Torres. No doubt incredible news for one of the most emblematic wineries.
