    Product description

    Milmanda is a crisp, refreshing white wine with lively aromatic expression and a medium body. Notes of oak and orchard fruit dominate the palate supported by layers of ripe pineapple, bright citrus and a smoky finish. This is a Chardonnay to enjoy with roast pork or barbecued seafood. - Winemaker notes

    The area of Penedes, just outside of Barcelona, is home to some of the best white grape varieties for the sparkling wine Cava.   The cool-climate here also makes Chardonnay a star in the still white wine category, and can easily find it's way into a lineup of some of the best California and Burgundian whites. 

    "Wow. A glorious chardonnay that I have been admiring for decades. It’s full-bodied with layers of ripe apple, hints of white peach and nougat and vanilla undertones. Creamy. It’s full-bodied and gorgeous all the way through." - 95 points, James Suckling

     

    In 2020, Familia Torres Winery is celebrating their 150th anniversary, but the family’s roots extend even farther than that. The first mention of the Torres wine family was in 1557, but the winery wasn’t established until 1870, when the profits from the family shipping company made it possible to enter the commercial wine space.

    Miguel Torres Vendrell founded the company, and since then, the family has passed on the winery (and the name Miguel) steadfastly from generation to generation. They hit a setback when the winery was bombed during the Spanish civil war, but Miguel Torres i Carbó rebuilt, and began the bottling and exporting of the wine.
