“Ann and I greatly enjoyed the Sunday lunch at the Millstones yesterday. Cristina Torres was able to present an excellent group of Torres wines which enhanced another fine lunch from Michael,  well served by friendly staff. All present seemed to enjoy the occasion.  Millstones is a nice venue for such events.  Thanks for arranging the lunch and sourcing the best from Torres global vineyards.
PS : is HMWS going to offer the Chardonnay ,which Cristina mentioned, is on temporary offer?  If so, I would order.” – Dr. Stephen Cameron, Pick Hill, 14th October

Thank you Bernard for organising the Event.” – Gwynneth Owen, Leeds, 14th October

“Just a line to say what an enjoyable event the Torres wine tasting lunch was, Christina was friendly and informative, the wine generally were excellent as you would expect from this world famous producer, the Pinot Noir was my favourite.

Now looking forward to the Champagne trip.”

“Thank you for organising an excellent lunch and wine tasting last Sunday. Both Renna and I thoroughly enjoyed the day, none of the wines were a disappointment and some were a truly delicious. The matching of the Acero unoaked Chardonnay with the smoked trout was a match made in heaven, whilst the three reds competed to show what can be done in new areas, with modern techniques and a lot of care with well established grape types.” – Tony Lee, London, 16 October
“What a tasting! We thoroughly enjoyed Sunday – a very pleasant way to spend a rainy autumnal day. Christina was lovely and how lucky is she to be born into the Torres dynasty.” – Tony & Sian Gamble, Harrogate, 17 October
