This Labastida winery, part of the Familia Torres group, is in a beautiful location that was once scrubland. Familia Torres co-founded International Wineries for Climate Action (IWCA), a collaborative working group of environmentally committed wineries focused on reducing carbon emissions across the wine industry. In line with the Torres philosophy, the new winery operates in complete harmony with the environment. For example, the winery collects and treats rainwater to use for cleaning. Also, a solar panel installation on the roof, backed by reliable Morningstar products, powers the winery’s operations.
