Efforts are been made to promote up stream channelization, building a cooperative channel for benefit sharing and brand win-win scenarios so that more consumers can enjoy high-quality wines from all over the world without leaving their homes. Currently, JD.com Wine & Spirits Department has become the largest online wine retailer.

I believe in the future, the cooperation between the two parties will achieve more breakthroughs. May Torres be a huge hit during JD 618!"

Alberto Fernández, Familia Torres General Manager of Asia-Pacific, Middle-East & Africa commented: “With the current growth of the online market in China, Torres has seen the importance to invest in this channel. Offering Sangre de Toro exclusively to JD.com and to commemorate this occasion we are making JD.com our first partner to release Sangre de Toro Special Selection in China.”
Alberto Fernández, Familia Torres General Manager of Asia-Pacific, Middle-East & Africa
Our winemakers elaborate Sangre de Toro Special Selection by carefully selecting the best barrels that stand out for its inimitable personality and Mediterranean characters. A limited edition that distinguishes itself by its deep cherry color, as well as its firmness and good structure in the mouth.
In the year 1954, Miguel Torres Carbó was already seeking out the most prized red grapes of the region, Garnacha and Cariñena, to create a different wine that would express the authentic character of the land. This led to the birth of "Sangre de Toro", whose name is inspired by Baccus, Roman god of wine, known in ancient times as "Son of the Bull".
“My dream is that our wines will be known and recognized for their quality around the world.”
—— Miguel Torres Carbó, 3rd generation
Taittinger, Champagne, France

Champagne houses such as Taittinger which bear the name of their owners are rare. Taittinger is, above all, the tale of a family motivated by passion and a desire for high standards, which decided to never compromise on quality. The secret of the sophisticated, elegant style so characteristic of Taittinger champagne lies in the large proportion of Chardonnay grapes used in the preparation of its various cuvées and this makes them recognisable throughout the world.
From June 2018, all eyes will be turned to Russia, a great champagne-loving nation for centuries, for 2018 FIFA World Cup™. To celebrate the biggest single sporting event in the world, Maison Taittinger launches today a limited edition bottle designed to represent the conquest of space and to evoke the idea of energy and perseverance.
