Sunday, January 29, 2012 at Del Posto, New York, New York

Arguably the most important wine of The New Spain, Pingus inspired a whole generation of young Spanish winemakers to reach for the stars.

And now with its 15th vintage just released, and six consecutive Wine Advocate ratings between 98 and 100, Pingus is not only Spain's most coveted red wine, it is also its most expensive and difficult to acquire.

On January 29, Pingus' creator Peter Sisseck hosted a private dinner at Del Posto, in which we tasted not only a half dozen of the greatest vintages of Pingus, but, for the first time anywhere, a complete vertical of the even rarer Pingus Amelia. Peter only makes one barrel of this treasure from a century-old vineyard Peter says has the most perfect clone of Tempranillo he's ever seen.

The line-up:

Pingus
1996, 1998, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009

Pingus Amelia
2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009


He also treated us to America's first taste of his exciting new project in St. Emilion, Château Rocheyron.

This was the first time in six years that Peter has been able to join us for an event like this. 

The cost of all of this, included a four-course tour de force dinner from one of New York's top kitchens.
