BIOGRAPHY: JAVIER PELÁEZ
“The harvest is the magic that yields equilibrium between earth and man”.
A passion for the grape; Javier Peláez, loyal disciple of the teachings of his father, Mr. Mariano Peláez, feels a true fervor for this work, the caretaking of the vineyards and the development and coupage of his wines.
His mission; to follow in the footsteps of my father, Mariano Peláez, within a company of extremely important family traditions.
His pride and joy; that our wines, having been given great care and consideration throughout their development at Finca La Moreira, receive the love of the consumer, vintage after vintage.
His dream; to continue loving my job, and to continue working, as I have done up to now, so that our products can continue to conquer new parts of the world.
Javier Peláez is part of the second generation of a saga, the Pelaez saga, and is completely dedicated to the profession as promoters of the creation of the D.O. Rias Baixas, pioneers in the defense and recognition of the grapes and wines native to Galicia.
He has been carrying out his work for over 25 years under the technical direction of Bodegas Marqués de Vizhoja, in addition to being a member and judge in the wine qualification and tasting committee at the Rias Baixas Regulatory Council.
