Characteristics of Torres Viña Esmeralda
Viña Esmeralda is a delicate and very aromatic white wine from Catalonia produced by Bodegas Torres.
This wine was created some time after Miguel Torres finished his studies in enology, when he decided to create fruitier wines than could be found in the wine market. Moscatel and Gewürztraminer are used, which grow in the mountainous area of the Upper Penedès, producing varieties with more flavour and delicacy.

For many Catalan winemakers, the DO Catalunya is one of their best weapons for marketing their wines to the international market, since the image of their wine is significantly enhanced by a ‘Denominación de Origen’, which can certify a wines origin and quality. One of the initial positive effects is the fact that great wines are associated with a larger geographic area within the peninsula, in the same way as the Bordeaux region in France. For many producers, the DO Catalunya is a clear sign of the regions commitment towards a model of quality. This is especially beneficial for Catalan wines that previously did not come under another ‘Denominación de Origen’.
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.
