“Peter Sisseck produces wonderful wines, with an amazing level of concentration, precision, and purity.”
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
Pingus is a very small estate created in 1995 by Peter Sisseck, a well-know Danish Winemaker. While other Spanish wines have achieved international recognition, Pingus is one of the very few that has joined the ranks of the world’s most coveted wines. Pingus is known and revered wherever great wine is discussed. Like those other esteemed names, Pingus has a quality that is often lacking in today’s “modern” wines - a sense of utter individuality. For there is no other wine in the world today that shares Pingus’ unique signature and, ultimately, that singularity is one of the fundamental requirements for great wine.
