Characteristics of Atrium Merlot
Atrium Merlot is a red wine from Penedès prepared by Torres. It is a varietal Merlot.
Atrium Merlot goes through a fermentation process once the harvest is complete.
Subsequently, Atrium Merlot remains in new Nevers French oak barrels for 6 months. The name of this wine goes back to ancient Roman houses. The atrium was the room in which music was played, they ate and enjoyed the pleasure of wine.
Torres is possibly the most internationally known Spanish winery. It exports to over 140 countries and is located in Vilafranca del Penedès, in Barcelona.

Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
Bodegas Torres is a family business of several generations dedicated to the production of wine and brandy in the Penedés, and they now have an extensive range of products which are exported to more than 140 countries worldwide.
