Re-investing 95% of its profits, has kept Bodegas Torres at the top of its game as a strong self-financed winery.
However Miguel Torres Jnr, general manager of the fifth generation wine powerhouse that is Torres, can provide a positive explanation for this.
Torres is the number one Spanish wine brand in Ireland and has held its leading position for over five consecutive years, according to Nielsen statistics. In fact, Ireland has the highest per capita consumption of Torres in the world. 2015 is also the brand's second consecutive year as Drinks International's 'Most Admired Wine Brand'. While 'bells and whistles' advertising campaigns may be out though, availability is key for Torres and samplings wherever possible at wine events and dinners, alongside journalist briefings, are a must.
Ireland's top Spanish wine
The Irish number one ranking is a clear source of pride for Miguel Torres Maczassek aka Miguel Torres Jnr., whose father Miguel Agustín Torres, is currently the president of Bodegas Torres. "We feel very honoured and proud, especially because of all the people that have worked with us during all this time…this has been a long trip because we started making wine 145 years ago. We started in the Penedès and then we went to Barcelona, with [only] a half-acre of vineyard."
Explaining the brand's popularity in Ireland, Torres Jnr says: "I think there are different factors," but a major one is that consumers try the wines out on sun-soaked Spanish vacations and "this is a good memory that stays with the brand. But also I have to say that we have a fantastic importer here; Findlater's has done a great job distributing the brand. What's more, he says that "no matter if you have €10 or €70", Torres will always strive to "have the best wine possible inside that bottle for the price that you are paying".
You don't want to get involved in the race to the bottom because that just means that all we're doing is taking the quality out; that's just something Torres is not interested in doing.

Research and development is evidently a focus for Torres. The company has achieved several successes in this area, including "isolating two yeasts for fermentation that only belong to Torres". Torres Jnr's sister Mireia is also leading the search for a solution to the international problem of vineyard 'wood diseases'.

Innovations such as these can have a major impact, when an operation is as large as Torres'.
Nowadays Torres has the technology to get the most out of these much maligned grape varieties though.

Torres - Worlds most admired drinks brand
By Ziad Lima FdSc Wine Production year 2
As a kid my mother always told me not to be a jack-of-all-trades but a master of one. This was brought back to me upon hearing that we were visiting Torres, as they produce a wide variety of styles of wine and alcoholic beverages. In this particular case, Torres have proved my mother wrong, as they have been able to keep their exceptional standards incredibly high despite the number and varied styles of drinks they produce, some of which I had the pleasure of tasting. Torres have a long and distinguished history; it is one of the world's leading wine family dynasties, as well as one of its most recognisable brands. Brothers Jaime and Miguel Torres founded Bodegas Torres in 1870; since then, generation after generation of the family have innovated and expanded the business. Torres is Spain's largest producer of DO wines under its own label, and exports to more than 140 countries.

Visit to Torres and new PFV president,
Another page in the history of Primum Familiae Vini has just been turned. The Torres Family has hosted our families in the last few days with their incomparable generosity and sense of hospitality.
Torres has not only been a founding member of PFV and a driving force within our association, they have been a model to many of us in the wine business, well beyond our association. In the course of the last few days, their entire family has demonstrated to all of us their uncompromising unity with only one common goal in mind.
