New Torelló white wine, a tribute to the oldest family country farm

From Mas de la Torrevella, located on a hill on our Can Martí Estate in Gelida, at the foot of the Ordal Mountains, one can see the impressive winegrowing region of Penedès. Today, the mas is the agricultural centre of Torelló Viticultors cellar. From these vines now a new wine is born, fresh and fruity, ideal for welcome the good weather.

In fact, the oldest document we possess of the history of our family (dated on 17th June 1395) refers to the emphyteusis (hereditary lease) established by the Lord of Gelida over Mas de Torrevella, the current location of the Can Martí Estate and its country houses, in favour of the Torelló’s family ancestor by direct lineage, Jaume Miquel. Thus, is referred in the document:  with “all its houses, buildings, fields, vineyards, lands, woods, allotments, honours and other possessions belonging to the Mas or which will pertain to it in the future, whatever they may be.”

Mas de la Torrevella wine is made following Torelló compromises: Its own vineyards organic cultivation, harvesting by hand and vinification on the property. These principles define all its

still wines, gathered under the DO Penedès, and its sparkling wines, under the quality brand Corpinnat.
