Mas La Plana
Legend in black
In this small (29 ha.) vineyard only the most select Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown. These are used to make strictly limited quantities of Torres’ most prestigious red wine, now known to connoisseurs all over the world. In the Paris Wine Olympiad, the 1970 vintage triumphed over some of the most famous wines in the world, including some of the best from Bordeaux. This success has been repeated on several other occasions, with Gran Coronas Mas La Plana notching up numerous other international awards.
The first vintage of this wine dates back to 1970 in its beginnings the wines included small quantities of Tempranillo, the main variety was always Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Penedès has been associated for decades with innovative vineyards and wineries. Ever since it became the first area in Spain to use stainless steel and cold fermentation equipment, the vine growers of the Penedès have been making excellent modern wines from a mix of native and French grape varieties. This has been possible because of the variety of altitudes, lands and micro-climates found in the Penedès which foster the ideal growth of the different grape types.
Deep, yellowish grey-brown alluvial soils that are well drained and have a moderate water holding capacity. Made up of alternating layers of gravel, sand and clay.
