Grace Vineyard and Torres are keeping things in the family, so to speak. The Shanxi-based winery considered by many to make China’s best drop, and the Spanish company whose China office distributes Grace products, are both family-owned and are teaming up for this year’s harvest in China.
After a year of preparations, two Torres wine makers joined their counterparts at Grace Vineyard on Monday, said Alberto Fernandez, head of Torres China. “We are aiming at producing – hopefully – one of the most interesting white wines in China!” he added.
For more details on the relationship between Torres and Grace, see this talk I had with Fernandez earlier in the year. Also of note, Torres China will hold its second “Taste of the Nations” in Beijing on September 20.
