Description

Alejandro Fernández, Grupo Pesquera’s “alma mater”, decided to renovate and modernise an old
bodega to plant vines from his award-winning Pesquera de Duero muse grape variety, Tempranillo,
in Tierra del Vino Zamona. The bodega boasts a three-century old subterranean cave where the
wines age in an unparalleled ambience.

Vineyards located in the southwest of the province of Zamora, on the Dehesa La Granja estate, which
boasts a total of 800 hectares of crops, (including 120 ha of vineyards). Average 25-year old vines.
The soils are mostly sandstone sediment, clay and limestone conglomerate which give rise to
chalky top soils. Loamy soils interchange with coarse and ne grain sandy soils. 620-750 metres above sea-level.
Continental climate, extremely dry climate inuenced by the Atlantic. Very cold winters and high number of daylight
hours give rise to exceptional quality grapes, which are the essential ingredient behind these classic wines.
Aged 24 months in American oak barrels and 12 months in the bottle.
