Family-run winery in the municipality of Pesquera de Duero in the Castile-León region in the DO area of Ribera del Duero in northern Spain. It was acquired in 1972 by Alejandro Fernández, a skilled agricultural machinery technician who had made a great fortune inventing agricultural machinery for sugar beet, and Esperanza Rivera. The origin was a small winery made of natural stone from the 16th century, the current ancestral estate Tinto Pisquera. The property includes four wineries and the hotel "AF Pesquera". Along with Vega Sicilia, Alejandro Fernández is considered an important pioneer of the modern Ribera del Duero wine style. He is also known as the "Rey del Tempranillo" (King of Tempranillo). The three granddaughters of Esperanza Rivera and Alejandro Fernández took over in 2019. The vineyards cover a total of 220 hectares of vines. Tempranillo is cultivated in all four wineries, and the white variety Airén is also cultivated in the El Vínculo winery.

The flagship of the parent winery Tinto Piquera is "Pesquera de Duero" or "Pesquera" for short in honour of the municipality of the same name where the founding couple was born. Along with the "Pingus" of the Dominio de Pingus wineryand the "Unico" of the Vega Sicilia winery, this is one of the best and most expensive winesmost expensive wines in Spain and also in the world. In 1992, it was named "Petrus of Spain"by Robert ParkerParker Robert and thus became world famous. The wine is made from thepureTinta del País ( Tempranillo ) grape variety, which is cultivated with very limited yields.After fermentation, there is a two-week maceration period , followed by malolactic fermentationin French or American oak barrelsbarriques , in which the wineisalso aged for several years.Afterwards, there is no fining and no filtration .

There are the qualities Crianza , Reserva and Gran Reserva,which differ in the age of the vinesvine , the grape selection, the age of the barriques and the duration of the barrique ageingbarrique ageing (up to four years). At the same time as the DO Ribera del Duero came into being, the first "Janús Pesquera" was produced in 1982. The name refers to the two-faced Roman god of time. Janús is only made in excellent vintagesvintage (for example 1986 and 1994) with grapes from Viña Alta, the highest vineyard of Bodega Tinto Pesquera, using the classic method with whole bunches (without destemmed grapes).

The Condado de Haza winery near Roa de Duero (Burgos province) was acquired in 1995. In addition to guided tours and wine tastings, there is the opportunity to get to know Castilian cuisine and experience the culture of wine pairing in the winery's restaurant. Then, in 1998, the three-hundred-year-old Dehesa de la Granja winery in Vadillo de Guareña (Zamora province) was acquired and modernised. Part of the estate is used for farming and livestock. Here, in addition to wines, mature cheeses, chickpeas and extra virgin olive oil are produced. Finally, in 1999,the El Vínculo winery wasbuilt in Campo de Criptana (Ciudad Real province) in Castile-LaLa Mancha. In die Kellerei El Vínculo errichtet.
