Located in the province of Castilla y León, in the North of Madrid and not far from the prestigious Vega Sicilia estate, Dominio de Pingus is one of the finest Spanish names.
In 1995, the Danish oenologist, Peter Sisseck, founded Dominio de Pingus. Sensing the extraordinary potential of the Ribera del Duero region and driven by the will to produce a fine wine that reflects the expression of its terroir, this renowned oenologist meticulously carried out a selection of old Tinto Fino vines, the local name for the Tempranillo grape variety. The goal being to turn Dominio de Pingus into one of the most famous estates in the world.
Pingus embodies the excellence of the Ribera del Duero region through a beautiful and inimitable range of wines which combine power, finesse and complexity.
