Alejandro Fernández – Magnífico de Honor 2017
Vivir el Vino wine magazine presented our founder with the Magnífico de Honor 2017 award in recognition of his lifetime achievements in the winemaking industry, and for marketing wine both in Spain and around the globe. A man who is admired for his savoir faire and the quality of his creations, whose passion drove him to set-up four bodegas, Tinto Pesquera, Condado de Haza, Dehesa la Granja and El Vínculo. “And with his fourth bodega Alejandro Fernández rested. Or so we thought. This self-made man, who has been named the Maestro of Tempranillo and the King Midas of Wine has carved out a gold-standard reputation for himself in the wine sector. (…) What’s more, Alejandro is upright and passionate about his native land. As a result, here and now we would like to express our most sincere appreciation of a legendary winemaker who has taken wine to its ultimate expression”.
