With a restaurateur father and a family holiday home in Rioja, wine has always been there for Alejandro. Having started out in wine retail, he followed this up with experience in sales and portfolio management at two other fine wine merchants before joining the Goedhuis & Co broking team in July 2016.
Food is very important for Alejandro and a love for travel allows him to discover new flavours. This is a passion that necessitates vast amounts of exercise and he can often be found on the football pitch, cycling in the countryside or simply in the gym in an effort to keep the waistline from expanding.
Alejandro’s wine collection while not large is varied and includes the classic regions of Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne with smatterings of Italian, Spanish, U.S, Australian and fortified wines. His favourite tipple? Left Bank Bordeaux, vintage Champagne and classic Rioja are obvious choices but with an ever changing palate he is currently enjoying aged German Rieslings and collecting the underrated sweet whites of Bordeaux.
