Trip to Australia, a country well known for its kangaroo, koala, the Great Coral Reef, beaches and vast deserts and cities such as Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. And of course wine!

posted on 07/09/2017
Visiting the legendary, cult winery Dominio de Pingus, founded in 1995 by Danish Peter Sisseck. But how did Peter manage in just two decades to be selling all his wines En Primeur, one year ahead of their official release? Density and strength coexist with freshness and finesse. Of course he has much more aces up his sleeve!

The wines were really elegant and fully justified the producer’s status in the minds and hearts of wine lovers in both Greece and abroad.
