1. Peter Sisseck Age: 49

Danish-born Sisseck is the creator and owner of cult Spanish wine Pingus (from Ribera del Duero), which has been ranked as the highest scoring wine by Robert Parker for the last five years according to the Liv-ex Power 100.

Parker declared Pingus’ first vintage (1995) “one of the greatest and most exciting wines I have ever tasted.”

No more than 8,500 bottles of are produced each year, which sell for more than £400 a piece. Sisseck’s second wine, Flor de Pingus, is also proving popular with Parkerites.

The great Dane’s uncle, Peter Vinding-Diers, transformed the quality of white Graves in the ‘80s, perhaps explaining why Sisseck has branched out to St Emilion, where he runs the biodynamic estate Château de Rocheyron, producing his inaugural vintage last year.

One Response to “Ones to Watch in 2012”

  1. Rather than predicting the next glitzy celebrity endorsed icon wines’ likely to attract attention, I think it would be more intriguing to predict which wine region is most likely to become the focus of international desire in 2012. My firm suspicion is that the tried and tested region of Burgundy and in particular Chablis and the Côte de Beaune will once again be centre stage for their nervy whites.
