In September 2020, We were due to have our first customer wine trip to Rioja in the heart of Spain. We had planned a four day trip with 6 winery visits but it was not to be. Aside from vowing to put the trip on again soon when restrictions allow, it is most likely something we will. plan again for September 2022.
In the meantime, the last year has allowed us champion bringing the winemaker to you virtually and we have one of our most exciting virtual winemaker events coming up on October 8th 2022. Get some friends or family around and cook Spanish food whilst enjoying some of the top wines from Bodegas Torres in Spain. We will welcome Lucas Gailhac from Torres on the evening and Lucas will bring us through the winemaking process and the stories behind each wine.
The tasting will last roughly 90 minutes. We will include a full recipe booklet from Bodegas torres, with recipes from their own winery restaurants created by heard chef Sergi Millet to match with each of the wines are are tasting on the night.
We will taste 2 whites, 3 reds and one dessert wine. Bodegas Torres have sponsored the event by reducing the wine cost for you by 20%. Therefore you will only pay €120 for €150 worth of wine and will get the recipe booklet and online tasting on October 8th completely free of charge too.
It is a n evening not to miss. It will be hosted by Will and Michael at WineOnline.ie and will be limited to 100 places as we only have enough wine for this many. We are looking forward to seeing you on the night.

1 x 75cl
Waltraud Maczassek, of German nationality, put down roots in the Penedès region when she married Miguel A. Torres. That's why he decided to make a wine in her honour, using German varieties but planted in the Upper Penedès.
This wine is made with the best harvests of Riesling, which is one of the most highly prized aromatic varieties - and rightly so given that it is capable of producing such an elegantly sublime and magnificently fruity wine as this.
Pazo das Brunas Albarino
1 x 75cl
Pazo das Bruxas is a wine that pays homages to the folklore and nature of Galicia, a land of immense forests inhabited by mystic and magical beings like the Galician witches who lived in old country houses (pazos) where they would connect with nature through dances and spells to obtain the best fruits from it. Just like the albariño stock that gives life to Pazo das Bruxas.
Torres Celeste Ribera del Duero
1 x 75cl
Celeste is an opulent wine brimming with fruit, body and colour: as unique as the night sky in the Ribera del Duero.
At 895 metres altitude you can almost touch the stars and shape the clouds. The dusk air is intense with fragrance. And the sun lights up the land in all its splendour. Here, at a height of 895 metres, Celeste is born, the Torres family’s first Ribera del Duero.
Torres Salmos Priorat
1 x 75cl
This Wine is a homage to the monks of the courageous carthusian order, who arrived in 'Priorat', in 1095, where they cultivated vines. In 1835 a violent crowd destroyed the work of a lifetime and sacked the monastery, events which later culminated in the auctioning of church lands known as the "Desamortización de Mendizábal". In 1996 the Torres Family began work on the planting of vineyards on the slopes strewn with the hard, black slate-like "Licorella" stone.

As far back as 1770, the monks of the Montserrat abbey carried out their penance at the Desterrats estate. The area was known for its extreme climate and harsh conditions. Their task: working the land to provide food for the diocese. Their legacy: discovering a new terroir and a superlative wine. The legend: Enormous barrels vanishing mysteriously. Some said it was the angels taking them to heaven...
Torres Moscatel D Oro
1 x 75cl
This sweet wine is made from one of the Mediterranean’s most classical vines.
The Greeks called it "Anathelicon Moschaton" and the Romans "Apianae", because it attracts the bees that, from the Muscat flowers, make the delicious nectar of their honey.
