Niepoort’s mission is to preserve the niche player position and continue to create great Port and Douro wines bringing together secular tradition and innovation.
The company has passed through five generations of family ownership and Dirk Niepoort now runs the firm. He has a dedication. passion and enthusiasm that has made him one of the most popular figures in the wine trade. He has always been innovative, pushing the boundaries both in winemaking and design concepts to achieve a unique style.
Niepoort was formerly more well-known for its Colheita wines, the vintage tawny Ports that are not often exported. Niepoort Vintage Port has a style that can be appreciated when very young, though as it matures, the wine soon closes up and becomes as long-lived as any. Production is tiny compared to other producers so the ports are rarities.
