Characteristics of Torres Fransola
Torres Fransola is a white wine from D.O. Penedès produced by Torres, a winery that, generation after generation, has passed down the secret of the production of its great wines and love of the earth. This wine is a coupage of Sauvignon Blanc and Parellada grape varieties, grown from vines at Finca de Fransola which is located at an altitude of 550 metres, in the area of Santa María de Miralles. As for the production, the partial fermentation takes place in new American and French oak barrels and, afterwards, it ages for 4 months.

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.
