  • 92 Points - The Wine Advocate

    ”The Garnacha always has a lower pH than the Tempranillo, and helps to provide an extra spark of freshness. This is an approachable Ribera, but keeping the character of yesteryear. This is really what Ribera del Duero used to be: all old vineyards and no new oak whatsoever. Kudos to that!” Luis Gutiérrez

Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

Pingus was founded by Demark born Peter Sisseck. His fascination for wine began at home with his parents and at the age of 14 he was further inspired by visiting his uncle, the renowned winemaker Peter Vinding, in Bordeaux. This visit ignited what would become a life-long passion. 

In 1995 the first Pingus was bottled. His aim was to produce "an unmistakably Spanish, terroir-driven wine...a garage wine." This was a huge success and for the first time a Spanish wine was lifted to the podium of the world’s best wines, awarded with 98 points by the respected Wine Advocate.

One of the greatest young red wines I ever tasted.” Robert Parker Jr.

Pingus is the result of 2 complementary and exceptionally well-balanced old vine Tempranillo vineyards - ‘Barroso’ from the gravel-sandy Duero River and ‘San Cristobal’ sitting on west facing clay slopes.

Interview with Peter Sisseck, Owner

What makes Pingus 2014 stand out and what makes the structure so unique? Do you feel the older vines are a big part in this? 

The structure of Pingus 2014 of course has to do with the age of the vines, also from the fact that it suffered a strong hail storm. The 2014 is like a modern version of the 1995 vintage, the vintage we made one of the best wines we have produced ever. The first to share the same complex tannic structure, but in a modern version.

What was the greatest moment in the winery’s history to you?

We have many great moments in mind, but it was maybe, the feeling we had when Robert Parker gave the Pingus 1995 (barrel sample) 96 to 100 points, a totally unknown wine, that have never been made before, still stands as ground breaking.
