Region: Ribera del Duero
Size: 750 ml.
Dominio de Pingus is in the La Horra area of the Ribera del Duero region of Spain. The estate was started in 1995 by the Danish winemaker Peter Sisseck, who also managed Pesquera de Duero winery. The wine is 100% Tempranillo that comes from very old vines, all grown organically. Even with its first vintage in 1995, Dominio de Pingus acquired a cult wine following. Robert M. Parker Jr. called the 1995 vintage “one of the greatest and most exciting wines I have ever tasted.” Parker further notes that Pingus is “Spain’s quintessential garage wine, made in an actual garage just off the highway to Valladolid.” Today annual production of Pingus is about 500 cases. There is a second wine called Flor de Pingus, also 100% Tempranillo. Since 2003 the estate has produced a very limited cuvee called Ribera del Duero Amelia, made from vines more than 100 years old.
