Matias í Torres

Victoria Torres is a fifth-generation vinegrower from the town of Fuencaliente on the island of La Palma who took over the reins a few years ago after having worked alongside Juan Matias in the winery and vineyards for many years. 1999 was the first vintage that they bottled under their name. Before that, they made wine mostly for their own consumption and the rest was sold in bulk to the local market. The winemaking remains old-school in this house: no temperature control, wild yeast fermentation and plenty of whole cluster. The reds are foot-trodden. The wines are raised in very old 600-L American oak barrels and bottled unfiltered. The estate's total production is only 1,200 cases.
