Quinta Sardonia, Tierras de Castilla y León

Qunita Sardonia is the brainchild of Peter Sisseck, owner-creator of Dominio de Pingus and one of the finest, most particular intellects operating on the Spanish scene. QS is a relatively new project of Peter’s, which I have been following since its inception. Biodynamic and organically grown, it is a high altitude ridge-and-valley site which Peter has planted and nurtured from scratch. The vineyard incorporates all that Peter has learned in both his old vine project Dominio de Pingus and also from his experiences managing Hacienda de Monasterio. Peter was hired to run Hacienda de Monasterio in the early 90s, but the estate never really quite worked out. Nevertheless, it facilitated his discovery and re-interpretation of the wonderful old vines that became Pingus, and has now led full-circle to this exciting new estate.

Situated about 8 kms west of the Pingus winery, QS is located just outside the western border of Ribera del Duero, at around 850m altitude above the town of Sardon del Duero. Thus, the wines are labeled Vino de la Tierras de Castille y León, effectively a ‘country wine’ appellation. The Quinta Sardonia estate is 17 hectares and features three solid profiles, gypsum, loam and limestone and was planted in 1998.
