Niepoort's story begins in 1842 when Dutchman Eduard Kebe established the firm in the famed Douro wine-making region of Portugal. When he passed away in 1848, the business was left in the capable hands of his business partner, F. M. Van der Niepoort. Over 150 years later as the 5th generation to do so, Dirk Niepoort continues to make fortified wines using the same methods as his ancestors. Dirk is a true Renaissance man, effortlessly embracing the history and tradition of Port while also leading the way as one of its most innovative and creative winemakers. This could be celebrated in no better way than by the unrivaled collection of Colheitas released from Niepoort's cellars as well as by the groundbreaking, still table wines he has created from forgotten old vines. From 80+ year old vines of Tinta Amarela and Touriga Francesa that produce only 1/2 ton per acre in many vintages, the Redoma embodies the heritage and inherent wealth of Portugal's vineyards and the innovative, passionate skills of Dirk Niepoort. These exciting new wines are born from the same pioneering attitude of Dirk's predecessors that bestowed Niepoort with one of the most exhilarating and expansive cellars of Colheita ever amassed.
