Pinugs domain, Ribera del Duero

According to Condé Nast Traveler, one of the best wineries in Spain is Dominio de Pingus, a very small winery located about 30 kilometers from Roa, in the province of Burgos.

Appointed marquis by King Amadeo of Savoy, Don Luciano established the concept of a French château on the Ygay estate, where he built the emblematic Ygay Castle. Today the winery is run by Vicente D.
