Both the Pingus and the Flor de Pingus vineyards are located in the La Horra sub-zone of Ribera del Duero. Pingus is selected from two old parcels, Barroso (2.5 ha) & San Cristobal (1.5 ha), both planted in 1929. Proprietor, Peter Sisseck, was an early convert to Biodynamics in the early 2000s. He has today a dairy farm where the composts and preparations can be produced. All harvesting is by hand. The fermentations start spontaneously with indigenous yeasts in upright wooden fermenters, and he racks only the minimum necessary during élevage.

"Ripe-berry, black-cherry, black-mushroom and violet aromas. Some stone and dry-earth undertones. Full-bodied and very long with and extremely fine, silky texture and a finish that goes on for minutes. The depth and texture of this wine is truly breathtaking. Another world-class Pingus. Try after 2025, when the tannins will have softened and the wine will be opening up."

"I tasted the bottled 2019 Pingus two weeks after bottling. Even at this early stage and after the operation, the wine is super harmonious and elegant. They really outdid themselves here and produced an amazingly fresh, aromatic and harmonious wine in a warm vintage. It's incredibly textured, with refined, very fine-grained and chalky tannins. It's very balanced, and there's no excess of anything; it has 14% alcohol, perfect ripeness and a velvety mouthfeel. It gets more floral with time in the glass, getting nuanced and really interesting. It delivers what the barrel sample promised one year ago, when the wine already surprised me. I think the word that best describes this wine is precision—it's clean, focused, balanced and delineated. Bravo! 7,900 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2021.."
