Named after Peter Sisseck’s childhood nickname, Pingus came into fame in 1996 when Robert Parker bestowed on its first wine a stunning 96-100 point score. An auteur winemaker like his uncle, Peter Vinding-Diers, the younger Peter employs biodynamic viticulture in his vineyards and consistently produces cult wines that are rated amongst the highest in Spain.
Another project of Peter Sisseck, of Pingus fame, the 17-hectare high-altitude site produces wine using fully biodynamic and organic methods. The estate wine showcases Tinto Fino (local Tempranillo) blended with the French varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec). Manual vineyard work, indigenous fermentation and aging in French oak ensure wines of power, balance and length.
