Producer Description

The Ferne1ndez Rivera family has always lived surrounded by vineyards and each member has a deep respect, love and pride for the wine from their native soil, Ribera del Duero. From the moment a young and determined Alejandro Ferne1ndez and Esperanza Rivera bought a small winery, the family has been linked to a lifelong passion passed through the generations. Propelled by the conviction that wines of superb quality could once again be made in their hometown, they went against the movement of the time, when cereal and beetroot dominated the landscape, and planted Tempranillo vineyards in Pesquera de Duero. In 1972, in a modest 16th century stone llagar, or ancient wine press, the family began to produce the first Tinto Pesquera wines.Tinto Pesquera's 200 hectares of vineyards sit near the Duero River, in the province of Valladolid, at close to 2,400 feet in elevation. The vines grow in poor, well-drained soils, composed of sand and gravel over a limestone and clay subsoil. This ideal combination produces the legendary silky and sumptuous Tempranillo wines of Tinto Pesquera iconic to the D.O. Ribera del Duero., the designation that Alejandro helped to create in 1982 with another few fellow pioneers.At Tinto Pesquera, the Ferne1ndez Rivera family is focused exclusively on creating aged Tempranillo wines of exceptional quality from their estate-owned vineyards. With extended barrel aging in neutral oak, forever respectful to the fruit, over time Tinto Pesquera's wines become more complex and nuanced without losing their original character. Years of experience working solely with Tempranillo and a firm commitment to time, waiting to release wines only when they are deemed ready to be enjoyed, have made Tinto Pesquera synonymous with fine wine from Ribera del Duero.
