The project to recover ancestral varieties is perhaps the most important that the Torres Family has developed over the last few decades. It is an exciting project that not only contributes to recovering our country's wine heritage, but also constitutes a possible solution for adapting to climate change. More than 35 years ago, Miguel A. Torres began the search for vines that would have survived phylloxera. Today, the fifth generation, led by Miguel and Mireia Torres, is strongly promoting this project with the aim of producing wines based on uniqueness and authenticity, which transmit our history and wine diversity. Of the more than fifty ancestral grape varieties that the Torres family has managed to recover, six show great oenological potential and aptitudes to face high temperatures and drought. They are Forcada, Moneu, Gonfaus, Pirene, Querol and Garró.

In this table we are going to learn about projects that have sustainability as one of their main signs of identity; and we are going to do it hand in hand with professionals or authorities on the subject who can share their own experiences, successful or recognized nationally or internationally. This is why we are looking at Bodegas Beronia, recently recognised as the most efficient winery in Europe, as well as other wineries of the González Byass group, such as Vilarnau, which prioritise sustainable policies in all their winemaking practices; or why we want to learn more about some of the Wineries for Climate Protection such as Bodegas Soledad. We will also be interested in the Rewine programme, which encourages the reuse of bottles, with the aim, on the one hand, of reducing the generation of waste and, on the other, of saving some production costs.

At present it is not very clear what sustainability is in the wine industry, whether it is a (bad) marketing tool, a challenge or an obligation. Those who apply it already in their business are the ones who are going to gain the most in the coming years. We will explain the change of business forever taking into account this approach of sustainability and innovation in favor of optimizing the environmental footprint of wine.
