ABOUT GRUPO PESQUERA
Passionate about wine for over four decades; the history of the 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. Often called the master of tempranillo and closely related to the upbringing of Ribera del Duero, Alejandro Fernández went against the usual in the 1970s and planted grapes instead of beets. It was not until 10 years after he planted his very first vines that Ribera Del Duero got recognized as a Denominación de Origen. Today four bodegas comprise Alejandro Fernández’s wine legace, and constitute Grupo Pesquera. They all share a passion for winemaking that has perfected over time.
