Storytelling: The Torres family’s name has been linked to wine for over three centuries. The winemaking secrets of the family’s great wines also find expression in Celeste, a 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) that originates from Torres’s winery in Ribera del Duero, located at 895 meters.
Vineyard of origin: Ribera del Duero
Soil: Notes on the soil types in the Páramo high plateau area (Fompedraza). The Fompedraza vineyard lies in the center-east of the Duero River Valley, near the town of Fompedraza and the Duratón River. This tributary flows into the Duero near Peñafiel. The area’s topography is gentle, characterized by high plateaus traversed by steep narrow valleys that give the region its distinctive morphology. The area is located at 900 meters above sea level, which has a significant influence on the region’s climate and winegrowing. The area shows a predominance of Tertiary and Quaternary continental deposits. Specifically, the vineyard sits atop deposits from the Upper Miocene and Quaternary periods. The predominant lithology of the Upper Miocene consists of interbedded layers of grey limestone and marl, whereas the Quaternary areas are mostly clay. The soils that formed on top of these materials tend to exhibit medium to fine textures and are very rich in carbonate.
