Our Winery

From his 200 hectares of breathtaking vineyards, Alejandro makes wines in which the wood has great respect for the fruit. Over time, the wines become more complex and nuanced without losing their original character; a phenomenon that has made the name Tinto Pesquera synonymous with fine wine from Ribera del Duero.

Tinto Pesquera is a pioneer in Tempranillo winemaking methods. The wine was given this name in honor of Pesquera de Duero, the town where the winery is located and where Alejandro and Esperanza were born. Tinto Pesquera is the gold standard for wines from this region.

The history of Familia Fernández Rivera began with the ingenuity of Alejandro Fernández and Esperanza Rivera, as well as the hard work and unity of a family. Together they created—according to Robert Parker—one of the best wines in the world. The group now boasts four wineries, a hotel and a team comprised of more than 120 people. Familia Fernández Rivera has known how to adapt to the times. At present, its wines and products are sold in more than 70 countries.

Winemaker
Name:
Alejandro Fernandez
Bio:
It is often said that childhood shapes an individual’s future, and every year from being a boy, Alejandro, following family tradition, learned from his father to make wine using grapes from small vineyards. He is the perfect example of the self-made man. A man who, in his youth, and while holding down various jobs, nurtured his dream of one day running a bodega. However, he had to wait until 1972 to have his own bonafide bodega; a modest 16th century stone-built bodega, from where almost all the winemaking process was carried out.
