Torres Chile

Miguel Torres was one of the first foreign investors to buy land in Chile, attracted by the special climatic conditions of this region.   In 1979 Torres purchased one hundred hectares of vineyard in Maquehua, San Francisco Norte and Cordillera and a winery located in the Curicó Valley.  With him, Miguel Torres brought his family’s long tradition wine-making and over one hundred years of company history.
