Characteristics of Gran Coronas
Gran Coronas is a red wine from the Penedès prepared by Torres. This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and Tempranillo (15%).
Gran Coronas uses Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, planted by Miguel A. Torres in the Penedès over 40 years ago. This was a bold and innovative project that gave excellent results.
The grapes, after being picked, they go through a process of destemming. Subsequently, they are macerated cold.
Gran Corona's wort is fermented at controlled temperatures. Ultimately, the wine is aged in oak barrels for about 12 months.
The Torres family name has been linked to winemaking and the Penedès since the eighteenth century. Following the philosophy of harmonizing modern oenology and wine traditions, Torres has managed to become one of the most famous Spanish wineries.

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.
