The Elegant Miguel A. Torres, Vintner of Spain

Elegant Survival has been featuring wines by Torres of Spain for three years.

Article by Jay McInerney in the Wall Street Journal, “A Spanish Dynasty Looks Forward”

Excerpt:

The elegant, courtly Miguel Torres has mild blue eyes and dresses in the tweedy style of the English country gentry, also favored by the chatelains of Bordeaux. At the age of 68 he seems to retain a youthful sense of curiosity; he has recently decided to take up Japanese and holds his own in a conversation with his Japanese importer, whose annual visit to the sprawling winery complex in Penedès coincides with my own. He drives a Prius, which seems as much a testament to his modest demeanor as to his passion for environmental issues. He stopped using pesticides 20 years ago and he’s committed to reducing CO2 emissions at the winery 30% by 2020. He’s also bought land in the cooler highlands near the Pyrenees, in case global warming makes the lowland vineyards in Penedès too hot for viticulture in the future.
