Purgatori Winery Opening

Familia Torres is honoured to announce the opening of the new winery Purgatori in the DO Costers del Segre on Monday 17th of September 2018. The winery is located in the historical ‘Mas de L’Aranyó’ that goes back to 1770, when a group of monks broke the rules of their Order and was exiled to this harsh, rugged region to carry out penance. They soon discovered that the area was perfect for winegrowing and set out to make a wine that would return them to heaven’s good graces. They succeeded, or so it seemed. Familia Torres have now brought back these old Mediterranean varieties to produce Purgatori, an icon wine with a limited production, made with garnacha, cariñena and syrah.
