Quinta Sardonia Sardon Red 2017
Owned by the Fonseca family of Galicia, Spain, Quinta Sardonia was founded in 1998 by famed winemaker Peter Sisseck. Peter designed and supervised the creation of Quinta Sardonia, planting select red Bordeaux varietals just outside of the D.O. Ribera del Duero, ensuring he and the winery’s future winemaker would not be bound by the rigid guidelines governing the neighboring appellation. Today, head winemaker Christian Rey, who studied under Peter, continues the estate’s dedication to organic and biodynamic winemaking, making sure the upmost quality and attention to detail is used during production. The wines produced at Quinta Sardonia are classified as a Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y Leon, or ‘Wine from the Land of Castilla y León’ and each bottling is considered to be a ‘multi-terroir, multi-varietal’ masterpiece, highly rated and in a class of their own.
