Wine importer Wilson Daniels has expanded its offerings range with the addition of Familia Torres wineries to its national portfolio.

With the national launch scheduled for 1 October, Wilson Daniels portfolio will feature Familia Torres’ wines from Penedès, Priorat, Ribera del Duero, Rueda and Rias Baixas regions in Spain.

Wilson Daniels president Rocco Lombardo said: “The advancement in Spain is a natural progression considering the strides made in Italy and France over the past several years.  To be partnered with the Torres family is an honour and their integration into our portfolio of such storied families will be seamless

“The Old World wines of Spain are among the most coveted in the world and working with the Torres family to share a selection of their most enviable bottles will be a highlight in a very challenging year.”

Wilson Daniels will represent only the Familia Torres’ range in the US comprising 17 wines.

At present, Familia Torres is overseen by 4th Generation Miguel A Torres and managed by 5th Generation Miguel Torres.

Familia Torres, which developed its Torres & Earth programme in 2008, reduced its carbon footprint 30% since then.

Familia Torres fifth-generation winemaker Miguel Torres said: “This partnership in the American market is great news for many American wine lovers, who will now be able to better enjoy and find our wines in the US.

“We are very pleased to partner with the Underwood family and the team at Wilson Daniels in such a strategic direction in the US market.

“It is great to see that we both have a similar philosophy, which is particularly reflected in Wilson Daniels’ values and long-term approach, with their focus on the premium segments of the market, entrepreneurial spirit and customer orientation.”

In March, Familia Torres initiated a new stage in a winegrowing project located in Alts d’Ancosa in the Penedès.
