Founded in the Curicó Valley in 1979, Miguel Torres was the first foreign winemaking company to establish itself in Chile. The Torres family chose this country as a suitable destination for the practice of winemaking, due to its excellent conditions for the development of this industry.
The decision to choose Chile for its excellent climatic conditions was not enough. Miguel Torres Chile was the first to introduce new technologies in winemaking, such as fermentation in stainless steel vats and aging in French oak barrels. In addition to contributing to the growth of Chilean wines over the last 30 years.
It was in 1985 that the 115-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines of the Fundo Manso de Velasco estate gave birth to Miguel Torres Chile's icon wine. Recognized the world over for its quality and for faithfully representing Chile's Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cordillera Carignan was born in 1996 from a project where Miguel Torres, together with other wineries in the Maule area and small producers, joined forces to form VIGNO - Club de Vignadores del Carignan (Carignan Winemakers Club) to work for the recovery of old varieties. This is how Miguel Torres strongly joins this new initiative with "Cordillera Carignan", which represents one of the latest and most relevant innovations in the wine industry.
