About the Winery:
Founded in 1954, Sangre de Toro comes from the D.O Catalunya and is produced by Torres, probably the most famous Spanish winery on the international scene. The name Sangre de Toro (blood of the bull) is meant to be an homage to Bacchus, the Roman God of wine known also as the Son of the Bull.

During the early 1950s, Miguel Torres Carb, part of the third generation to head Bodegas Torres, tirelessly explored the vineyards in his Renault 44, searching for the regions most prized red grapes Garnacha and Cariena. He wanted to make a different kind of wine that would lend expression to the authentic character of the land.

Today, people around the world see the Sangre de Toro wine as a model of quality Spanish winemaking: a contemporary, elegant and versatile classic that  affirms the importance of authenticity and staying true to one's roots.

Ratings & Reviews

89 Points - Decanter Magazine:
Launched back in 1954 by Miguel Torres Carbó, in very different times. It’s made mainly from Garnacha and Cariñena, varieties that went firmly out of fashion for their apparent rusticity. While they are right back in fashion, ‘Bull’s Blood’ never wavered. What has been updated – along with the screwcap closure – is the style. It’s fresher, juicier, more Mediterranean.” - Sarah Jane Evans MW (Sep 2020)
