Dominio de Pingus is a small winery in the DO Ribera del Duero, founded by Danish agronomist and winemaker Peter Sisseck. They work in an absolutely artisanal way, looking for a very low production, focusing on achieving excellent results in each of their wines.
The result of this is Pingus, today one of the most sought-after and coveted wines in the world.
The grapes come from select old vines between 50 and 70 years of age of the Tinta de Toro variety. It is a question of a few plots of very little production and of only 5 hectares of extension in the towns of Pesquera and Roa.
The grapes are harvested manually and only those grains that are at the optimum ripening point are selected, which will give the wine a very special character, with a lot of fruit concentration.
Pingus undergoes a completely natural fermentation, thus maintaining the aroma and flavor of the grape before going to the barrels where it will carry out its malolactic fermentation.
