Peter Sisseck is Pingus. An agronomist and oenologist born in 1962 in Copenhagen, he studied at the University of Bordeaux and worked for several years in important wineries in the area. Together with his uncle Peter-Vinding-Diers, he started what is known as the new wave of Bordeaux white wines. He has worked in California, in Spain he works as a winemaker and advisor at Hacienda Monasterio (also in Ribera del Duero) and in France he shares the Château Rocheyron project in Saint Émilion, Bordeaux with his friend Silvio Denz.
Pingus is born from the assembly of very special grapes from different plots of fine red. 30 km from Roa are these precious payments. The San Cristóbal vineyard has an area of 1.2 ha and the oldest vines (70 years); There are two vineyards in the Barrosso farm / estate, one of 2.5 ha with old vines, 60 years old, and the other younger, only 1 ha. The soils are clayey and with some lime, covered with stones. Selective collection and subsequent classification of the best grains at the selection table in the winery. Thorough microvinification and aging in special barrels. During the process, the wine is not subjected to clarification or filtration to fully respect its qualities. The years 1996, 2000, 2001 and 2003 were the first great vintages of Pingus, until the extraordinary 2004, with which he received the first 100 points from the critic Robert Parker. Although in general, all Pingus are great wines, marked by good intensity, fine, fatty, with a wide mouth, good structure and aging potential.
Peter Sisseck today produces two other wines in Dominio de Pingus: the equally coveted, especially for its price but also for its more affordable profile, Flor de Pingus, and the most recent, PSI.
