C.N. Kopke claims the title of being the world’s oldest running port house, being established in 1638 by Nicolau Kopkë. The company changed to its current name of C.N. Kopke in 1841. The purchase of Quinta de S. Luiz in 1992 was long desired by many connoisseurs, and became the crown jewel of Kopke’s production. It is located on the left bank of the Douro River, near Pinhão, in the parish of Tabuaço. Kopke Colheita Port Wines are renowned all over the world for their extraordinary quality and are made from a singular harvest, aged in wood for as long as possible, and are only bottled upon commission. The wines of Kopke and Port in general are special because they are truly intergenerational projects, started by one winemaker, passed down and cared for by the next. The current steward and head winemaker of Kopke, Carla Tiago, is extremely passionate and capable of carrying on this 300+ year legacy. Kopke is especially renowned for their white Ports, with their high-toned acidity and seemingly endless length. The 2003, which spent 16 years aging in barrel before bottling in 2019, is no exception. Profound lemon and orange preserve aromas are followed by the signature nutty, golden raisin finish.
