Why you should be drinking this wine:
T. Alegre is the first true “cult wine” of the Valle Guadalupe, Baja Mexico. Small production and produced to push limits of winemaking to create wines that exist once in a life time and age incredibly.
This family project is operated by legendary wine maker Victor Torres, Ph.D. and his son Leonardo Torres, an astute winemaker on his own. Victor earned a coveted Ph.D. from the University of Bordeaux and the research for his thesis redefined the way that the French make wine and challenged the conventional theory of the time. The techniques for aroma and flavor extraction discovered by Victor have become standard practice for wineries and winemakers worldwide, but not before his conclusions created controversy with the French. To this day: the French still state that a student at the University of Bordeaux developed the methods and not a Latino from Baja Mexico.
Leonardo has a master degree in art and when not assisting his father on wine making and operations. He personally designs all the labels used for the bottles. Each one representing a theme from the season of the wine.
T. Allegre is a passion project that elevates the art of the wine experience to a new level. Some wines are explosions of texture and flavor, others aromatic wonders….T. Alegre is both.
This winery will one day be considered among the finest in the world.
PS…We can not say the last name of this winery in the name of the wine because a certain conglomerate is afraid of the competition from a venerable guru of wine-making even though they probably use the techniques he created.
