In addition to reducing CO2 emissions to mitigate global warming, Familia Torres adapts to the new climate context by planting more resistant ancestral varieties, high altitude vineyards and regenerative viticulture. Miguel A. Torres began in the early eighties the project for the recovery of pre-phylloxeric varieties, practically extinct. Now, thanks to the efforts of the fifth generation of this 150-year wine family, the project focuses on those varieties that, in addition to being small oenological jewels, are able to face high temperatures and drought and become the solution for the viticulture of the future. Mireia Torres and the sommelier Sergi Castro will show the potential of some of these recovered ancestral varieties that the winery is experimenting with.
