Wine magnate Miguel Torres’ vision of a successful business begins with respect for the land that grows his grapes. From water conservation to pest-control methods, Bodega Torres‘ practices help keep the Chilean countryside intact for future generations of both vines and residents. In turn, many of nature’s most lovely details emerge in the finished product—take, for example, Cordillera Brut. Named for the arresting vistas and plateaus of mountain ranges, this clean, floral wine is as effervescent as dew burned off on a hilltop sunrise. To make Cordillera, Torres artfully coaxes the sensitive Pinot Noir varietal into fruiting, then completes an elaborate skinning and secondary fermentation process to create its golden bubbles. Pop the cork to celebrate being here on earth.
