Miguel Torres presented with a Wine Intelligence 10 for 10 Business Award

By Ryan White

Miguel A. Torres, President of Bodegas Torres, has been presented with a Wine Intelligence 10 for 10 Business Award by the London-based Wine Intelligence Ltd, which is the leading research-led strategy consultancy serving the global wine industry. Torres was one of 30 nominees selected by a panel of 10 global judges for “making an outstanding contribution to the wine industry in the last decade.”

The 10 for 10 Business Award judges said of Miguel A. Torres: “Miguel is one of the most widely respected wine business leaders of our time, and truly respected for his deep commitment to sustainable development. Miguel has steered Torres, a large wine brand, into new areas and ensured its ongoing success. This was never a certainty and he has managed it extremely well—an example for many for his vision and leadership in sustainability and his contribution to the modernization of the Chilean wine industry.”

“I am extremely proud and honored and I thank the Wine Intelligence team and the Jury very much for this Business Award," said Torres in his acceptance speech. "I of course appreciate that my name is on the award, but I am happy that it is our company name at the same time. Because where we stand today as a company is the result of many years of hard work and especially teamwork. It’s the extraordinary work and effort of our team of more than 1,300 employees and of all members of our family, my brother Juan-Maria, my sister Marimar and the fifth generation represented by Arnau Torres-Rosselló, Cristina Torres, my daughter Mireia and my son Miguel. But I would also like to express a special thank you to my German wife Waltraud, who helped building up the company and especially the German market. So thank you very much again, and of course congratulations to Wine Intelligence [on] your 10th birthday!”
