“Peter Sisseck and Pablo Rubio produces wines expressing the soul and the character of Ribera del Duero.”
The soils in Castilla Y Leon are influenced by their location within the central Iberian plateau. This region is wedged 700 meters above Sea level between the Cordillera Cantábrica and the Sistema Central mountains. In the mountains, soils are generally mineral-poor, eroded and acidic. The river valleys are alluvial, sandy-stony soils, medium dept, and little water retention. The plains have brown limestone, clay loam texture and low organic matter. The finest vineyards are found in the Duero Valley.
A Passionate Lineage
Since 2006, Peter Sisseck, winemaker of Dominio de Pingus has worked with former Alonso y Yerro winemaker Pablo Rubio to identify the vineyards and growers with the most potential. Their aim is to move these growers, step-by-step, towards farming healthier vineyards and getting better fruit. The duo is making available to each grower their expertise in organic and biodynamic farming. This company promotes higher levels of quality and identity in wines, while making sure the commitment to respect towards nature spreads.
