"A good port is characterised by its balance of eau de vie, tannins, red and black fruit, and sugar." - Dirk Van Der Niepoort

Origins

In 1842, the Dutchman F.M. Van Der Niepoort founded the house of Niepoort, which is today under the management of Rolf and Dirk Van Der Niepoort, representing the 4th and 5th generations of the family. Niepoort is to port what Taittinger is to champagne, and their limited annual yield of only 500,000 bottles is much appreciated by port connoisseurs. For 140 years Niepoort bought its grapes from the vineyards of the Cima Corgo region, and in 1987, the house bought its own grape farms in the same region.

Production

All the expertise and knowledge of the house of Niepoort is dedicated to the production of the wines it produces. The grapes come from old vines which produce a low yield per hectare, and the harvest is done by hand, only when the grapes are as ripe as possible. The grapes are then crushed under foot in granite containers. At the end of the fermentation process the juice is mixed with eau de vie, depending on the desired strength of flavour. After the winter has passed, the new Port is stored in the caves of the Vila Nova de Gaïa. It is here that the Port is matured to give it its truly special flavour, in oak caskets or century-old glass containers.
