In 1979, the Torres family acquired a small winery in Curicó, in the Chilean central valley, as the first foreign company to back Chilean vineyard production located in a unique magical landscape, at the feet of the Andes volcanoes. What attracted the Torres family, in particular to winemaking in Chile, were the excellent climatic conditions in which to grow vines. Chile has well differentiated seasons with spectacular temperature shifts, greater even than 20ºC. Also the absence of Phylloxera means that it is not necessary to graft vines onto American rootstock. Miguel Torres Chile joined Pacto Global Chile, being the first winery in Chile, an organization that depends on the UN (United Nations) which has as its aim the spreading of the basic principles of social responsibility in Chile.
