Winery Info

A few kilometers downriver from the western border of Ribera del Duero, on gentle south-facing slopes carved over centuries by the Duero, is Quinta Sardonia. The potential of this site was recognized by Peter Sisseck and Jerome Bougnaud, who were involved in the development of Quinta Sardonia shortly before its founding in 1998. Fully biodynamic from inception and covering 17 hectares on eleven different calcareous terroirs, this ambitious project permitted Peter Sisseck to employ his years of experience in neighboring Ribera del Duero, to implement his viticultural ideals unencumbered by tradition or the decisions of generations before him. The result is a youthful vineyard that produces wines of remarkable complexity and vibrancy relying mainly on Tinto Fino and Cabernet Sauvignon but also incorporating Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec.
