Torres Appoints New Head of Chile Operations


Miguel Torres Jr of the Torres family in Spain has been appointed executive president of the company’s Chilean subsidiary, based in Curicó.

He recently moved to the region, where his key objectives will be to increase sales in export markets including the UK, implement organic viticulture and develop new wines from Empedrado, a new winemaking region south of Concepción.

Torres, a fifth generation winemaker, said: “My family and I are delighted to move to Chile and embark upon a new personal and professional chapter in Curicó. We are lucky to have a great team behind us at Viña Miguel Torres which undoubtedly still have a lot of potential for growth, particularly in export markets”.

Torres Jr. will head up the new operational structure heading Sociedad Vinícola Miguel Torres S.A which will ensure that its premium wines achieve good penetration and consolidation both in Chile and abroad.  It will also continue to work on and encourage responsibility in environmental policy and producing organic wines.

During the past five years he has been the marketing director of Bodegas Torres in Spain.
