Fabulous tour and tasting
Oct 2019
Ribera del Duero wine is my favourite and I’ve always wanted to visit the region but it’s not easy to get to from the UK so when we decided to do a road trip around Spain I was keen to add this in as one of the stops - even though my husband doesn’t drink wine. I chose this bodega as it’s one of the most highly respected and we weren’t disappointed. There was only us two and another couple from Sweden On our tour and our guide was really excellent. Unfortunately I didn’t get his name but he comes from the Spanish town of Unquera. He was really knowledgeable about the company and it’s wines and explained both the old and current processes. I’ve visited many vineyards throughout the world and this was one of my favourite tours. The tasting was also great - especially as I had to drink my husbands! Thanks again to Mr Unquera. I will hopefully return with my girlfriends who do drink wine!

Very informative tour
Sep 2019 • Couples
An excellent Dutch guide led an English speaking tour. She explained something about the business and the processes by which the Pesquera wines are produced. A relatively short tour, concluding with a tasting of two wines - one a Pesquera Tinto Reserva, and the other a white wine from a different part of the business.
For us it was a disappointment that these were the only two wines to taste or on sale at the bodega. No opportunity to compare different vintages or crianzas. For buying, you need to tour the vinotecs in Penafiel. Nonetheless, a very interesting hour.

Wine tour and tasting.
May 2019
I enjoyed the presentation but as it was in Spanish the other 3 in my group did not understand what was going on but we all enjoyed the wines. We were scheduled to attend the day before but were not able to make it. I want to thank Lisanne van Duijn for answering my emails and in perfect English.

An outstanding Rivera del Duero winery.

Of all the wineries near Lerma, I couldn't help but choose Pesquera, one of my favorite wines. Staying at the magnificent Parador de Lerma, we drove the scenic route away from the autovia, and we'll worth it. Unfortunately, we were the only ones on the tour that day. But what a tour it was, guided by Lisa. She was very gracious and friendly. She explained the process from beginning to end. We tried the Pesquera Reserva 2012, which was decanted and of course it was excellent. The facilities were modern and tastefully designed. The old press was still there and well preserved. Kudos for Lisa and Pesquera, as we enjoyed the visit tremendously and highly recommend it.

Wonderful 350 year press was just the starter to this visit to the King of the Duero winery. Attention to historic processes ensures a great result in the glass.

Definitely worth a visit!

During our visit to Penafiel, we decided to pay a visit to the winery "Bodega Pesquera". The moment we arrived at the winery, we were welcomed by Lisanne, a dutch hostess. She gave us an exclusive tour and showed us the whole winery, from grape to glass. At the end of the tour there was a wine tasting. I'm not really a "wine person", but I have to say: the Pesquera 2012 was really smooth!

Just before we left, Don Alejandro entered the winery and we had a little chat with him. Absolutely adorable to see the old man walking through his winery

All in all it was an great experience and definitely worth to pay a visit when you're in the area.

Lisa took us on a tour organised by their sister hotel.
She was absolutely delightful, informative and professional.

I loved the wine before but after hearing about the family values and tradition associated with Alejandro I like it even more.

Top advisor Lisa took us around the winery, she was very interesting
Aug 2017 • Couples
Lisa knew all about the grapes, process, history of the winery and made the whole experience enjoyable.The wine speaks for itself as its one of our favourites.We bought a case of the Pesquera Reserve and are having it delivered as its better for the wine instead of being in the car another 10 days as Lisa advised.If you visit ask to be shown around by Lisa, ypu will not be dispappointed

A must if you're in Ribera del Duero!!

Excellent tour, our favorite of the four we visited. Lisa was a great host, explained everything clearly and has great patience answering all of our doubts. Its amazing to see a winery with such famous wines still have that family feel. The owner Don Alejandro was gracious enough to take a picture with us, chat for a while and even offer us a completely different wine from the two that were included in the tour. Everyone we know will hear about our great experience visiting this winery! ❤️

Despite very hot weather (36°C!) our guide was cool and clear. An informative and pleasant visit.

Unlike most tastings, only one wine (a very good Reserva) was offered -- it would have been more interesting if two wines were offered so they could be compared.
