About Bodegas Alejandro Fernandez:
Alejandro Fernández personites the mercurial 20th-century Spanish
experience. A family breadwinner from the age of thirteen, he went on to
learn several trades, beginning as a master carpenter. After military service he worked selling agricultural machinery but soon came to manufacture equipment of his own design, attaining national success with a revolutionary beet harvester. During all these years Alejandro harvested and made wine yearly from his own vineyards, nurturing a lifelong dream of establishing a bodega for the production of great red wines, following the traditions of his ancestors dating to Roman and Visigothic times.
Wines produced by Alejandro Fernández are made exclusively from
the dificult, quick-maturing Tempranillo variety, of which he is the
acknowledged master. His world-famous Tinto Pesquera is aged a minimum of 18 months in oak, with selected Reservas and Grandes Reservas remaining in barrel for 24 months and longer.
