Miguel Torres Maczassek is a fifth-generation winemaker running one of the most important bodegas in Spain. He oversees projects in Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rías Baixas, Rueda and Priorat – as well as his native Catalonia. We chatted about recovering ancestral grapes, Torres’ ground-breaking initiatives to combat global warming, what Miguel learnt from three years hard graft in Chile and why he doesn’t want to go to Hell by selling the family winery.
