Torre del Veguer is one of the most unique wineries in the world of wine, located in an idyllic setting in Sant Pere de Ribes (Barcelona, DO Penedès). Familiar, Torre (Tower) del Veguer is a fortified farmhouse dating back to 1359, where we make quality wines from our own vineyards. organic vineyards. We aspire to excellence throughout the entire process, from the vineyard to marketing. Torre del Veguer’s wines were already awarded the Gold Medal at the Universal Exhibition in Barcelona in 1888.
Respecting the medieval structure and the reform carried out in the 19th century, since 1995 new and modern facilities have been incorporated to produce wines following market trends.
In 1995 we started this new stage of the winery, based on the production of quality wines from native Garraf varieties such as Xarel.lo and Malvasía, Mediterranean varieties such as Muscat and Garnacha, and from other origins such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Syrah. Our vineyards have been 100% organic since 2016 and are surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea as a backdrop.
