About the winery

We are an independent family business since 1842. Through five generation the business passed successfully from one Niepoort to the next Niepoort and in most cases older and younger generation worked side by side for a long period.

***** Excellent 
The magic of aged Tawnys
This is really a great 20 years Tawny, with beautiful notes of dried fruits, honey, an incredible texture on the mouth, silky, concentrated but fresh, long aftertaste. Maybe there's a small hint of alcohol at the end that forbids me to tell it is perfect.....
This Port wine will follow a great meal in the best way possible!

Vinexus - Infinity of Wine Duitsland    Vinexus - Infinity of Wine Duitsland
Brick red, brown appearance interspersed with Orange hues with good depth of colour. Fabulous aromas of crystalized fruit and dried apricots which come through on the palate along with a smooth well integrated nutty alcoholic character on the finish.Tawnies with an age indication such as 20 years are blended from different wines averaging 20 years. The prolonged ageing in small wooden casks confers the characteristic Tawny colour. The principle features of an aged tawny are the complexity of aromas, the freshness and a persistent bouquet and refinement.After dinner, 20 years old tawny is a good match with cheeses and especially chocolate based desserts. It can also be drunk as an aperitif, serve at room temperature or lightly chilled. Vinification: The tawnies are aged in small old oak casks (550 l) in the cellars at Vila Nova de Gaia, over many years. The balanced marriage of the different characteristics and diverse ages is the art of the Niepoort master blender José Nogueira."
