New Mas de la Torrevieja wine, a tribute to the oldest farmhouse in the family
A white wine, young, organic and made 100% with Chardonnay grapes, harvested by hand and from our own vineyards.
Torelló Viticultors presents Mas de la Torrevella, a white, young, ecological wine made 100% with Chardonnay grapes, harvested by hand and from its own vineyards.
From Mas de la Torrevella, located on a hill of the Finca Can Martí, in Gelida, at the foot of the Ordal Mountains, you can see the imposing Penedès wine-growing area. Today, this farmhouse is the agricultural headquarters of the winery of Torelló Viticultors. From their vineyards is now born a new wine, fresh and fruity, ideal to welcome the good weather.
The oldest document in the history of the Torelló family (dated 17 June 1395) refers precisely to when the Lord of Gelida established an emphyteusis – census – on the Mas de Torrevieja – current location of the Finca Can Martí and its farmhouses – in favor of the family ancestor by direct line, Jaume Miquel. This is quoted in the centenary document: he ceded to him “all his houses, buildings, fields, vineyards, lands, forests, orchards, honors and other possessions that belong to the Mas or that will belong to him in the future, whatever they may be” .
Mas de la Torrevella wine is made following Torelló’s commitments: its own vineyards, organic farming, manual harvesting and vinification on the property. These principles define all its wines, hosted in the DO Penedès and sparkling, under the Corpinnat quality mark.
