Quinta 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. 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.
