Fwd: FAMILIA TORRES | Press release 240403 | Familia Torres, named the World's Most Admired Wine Brand 2024

The Drinks International ranking is compiled from a survey of a hundred wine experts

Vilafranca del Penedès, 3rd April 2024. Familia Torres has been voted the world's most admired wine brand by industry professionals, according to the Drinks International recently published ranking. The family-owned winery from Penedès tops once again the annual list "for its sustainable leadership, quality and consistency of its wines and brand strength across the globe" as stated by the British magazine.

Familia Torres, which has also been awarded the Most Admired Wine Brand in Europe, has taken the first position seven times out of 14 editions. It has been number 2 a total of five years, and has held the 3rd and 4th position once.

Drinks International compiles this ranking every year based on a survey of one hundred wine experts from around the world including sommeliers, buyers, wholesalers, Masters of Wine and writers. A percentile of the Academy rotates to guarantee a fair representation of the global trade. Participants in the survey are asked to name the five brands they admire the most, considering the quality and consistency of the wine, the price to quality ration and the strength of the branding.

Drinks International's editor Shay Waterworth comments: "Familia Torres is the most successful producer in the history of our ranking. Not only does the company make world-class wines, but our Academy admires the brand for its inspirational role in fighting climate change and leading the wine industry into the future. Congratulations must go to the family and all the winemakers at Familia Torres".

Miguel A. Torres, president at Familia Torres, is grateful for the support of wine professionals and attributes this recognition to the work and dedication of employees, distributors and family members. For him, "Torres is much more than a brand, it is a family of more than 150 years and five generations, profoundly devoted to winemaking and viticulture".  He states: "What sets our brand apart is precisely our legacy as a family winery and our commitment to excellence, innovation and sustainability. We have been leading the fight against climate change for many years, adapting and mitigating its effects, but more importantly, raising awareness and encouraging collaboration among wineries to address this unprecedented threat".
