Torres Vedras DOC
Torres Vedras is a Portuguese wine region centered on the town of Torres Vedras in the Lisboa wine region. The region is designated as Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC) after it was promoted from its former Indicação de Proveniência Regulamentada (IPR) status. The high yields produced in this region have historically be used by bulk wine producers for inexpensive vindo de mesa wines. The area was known by the shorthand "Torres" until Spanish wine producer Miguel A. Torres objected to the association with the region.
