The Niepoort family has been creating Port Wines since 1842. The first property in Douro was bought in 1987 and Dirk Niepoort started a new Era in the company with the creation of the first Redoma red in 1991. In the last years Niepoort took on the great challenge of interpreting other soils and climates and acquired two properties in other regions, Dão and Bairrada. Discover the Niepoort Triangle which express the different terroirs: Schist (Douro), Limestone (Bairrada) and Granite (Dão).

We believe that the Vinho Verde region holds great potential for the production of sparkling wines – not only thanks to the type of soil and climate but also due to the characteristics of the grape varieties. This wine is a result of a little experiment conducted in 2012 when we decided to set aside a share of the OLO and not bottle it. We kept this quantity in a small tank and bottled it the following January in order to produce a sparkling wine according to the traditional Champagne method. The result was very promising and we therefore repeated the experiment the following year. That is how the Espumante OLO 2013 was created.

Água Viva

The Bairrada region is perfectly suited to the production of sparkling wines. Its calcareous terroir and the natural acidity of the grape varieties Bical, Cercial and Maria Gomes are the factors which make it possible to produce top-quality sparkling wines here. In 2013 we wanted to continue the Quinta de Baixo tradition of producing classically styled sparkling wines with very low dosage, and so we created the Água Viva, a brut Blanc de Blancs made exclusively of grapes from the 2013 vintage.

With the mission of respecting biodiversity, we are recovering several old vines of white varieties in Dão, going beyond the variety Encruzado, predominant in the region. Rótulo white results from a blend of varieties, almost forgotten, like Borrado das Moscas, Rabo de Ovelha and Cercial, among others. Without any influence of barrels, we created a delicate, light, and harmonious wine, that reflects the granite, very typical of this region.

Vinhos Verdes
Teppo Peixe Branco

Teppo is in Japanese, the name of a weapon brought to Japan by the Portuguese in the sixteenth century that revolutionized the form of warfare in the country. Teppo Peixe was created to combine with Japanese cuisine, where the delicate and fine flavours are evident. Vinified in stainless steel, with slight carbon dioxide and some residual sugar, this wine was vinified in the old- fashion way, but with great purity and elegance. It is a perfect wine to pair with Japanese cuisine or dishes with delicate flavours.

Vinhos Verdes

OLO comes from the best vineyards in the sub-region of Basto. It is a white wine inspired by the Olo River, which, with its impressive granite landscapes and its so-called “Fisgas” waterfalls, is considered to be one of the most beautiful rivers of the Vinho Verde region. The abundance of water and granite in this area contributes to the minerality and freshness of the region’s terroir. This wine was made very delicately and carefully in order to create a serious, complex and very harmonious wine.

Wana Bi

Coming from the vineyards of Casa de Vilar, where Regina Pessoa and Abi Feijó live and find inspiration for their artistic creations, which includes the Niepoortland book by Regina Pessoa, it was created an Alvarinho fermented in barrel, with a very different profile from the usual expressive and aromatic style of this variety of the Minho region. As the name suggests, Wanabi is a wine that tries to be a distinct Alvarinho.

Nat Cool, naturalmente “cool and funky”, é um conceito inovador criado pela Niepoort, um movimento de união entre diversos produtores com o objectivo de criar vinhos leves e fáceis de beber. Na região dos Vinho Verdes criámos um vinho muito típico da região, relembrando os vinhos “turvos” de antigamente, que eram engarrafados muito cedo ainda com algum açúcar residual e na presença das borras finas, para refermentar em garrafa e originar gás carbónico.

Benvindo ao universo NAT COOL!

Riesling is one of the great white grape varieties in the world. Since 2003, we have explored this variety in the Douro, inspired by the Mosel region, where the variety shows its full potential, creating incredibly light and accurate wines with a perfect balance sugar/acidity. Riesling Au Au, just like the dog, is a loyal wine with a really enjoyable identity.

Moscatel Dócil (Ron Ron) is 100% from the Moscatel Galego variety. A variety with an identity of its own, characterised by its floral and citric aromas. We aspired to produce a light, fresh and young wine, based on the acidity and aromatic expression of the variety. Just like the cat, the wine is docile but with an unique and very distinctive personality.

The vineyards for Redoma Branco are all planted in high altitutes, above 400m and up to 800m. Therefore grapes have a longer and cooler ripening period (particularly at night). All the vineyards are over 60 years old. The main variety are Rabigato and Códega. It does not contain any Malvasia Fina grapes.


Tiara is a fresh and elegant white wine.The slow fermentation (three to five months) and the altitude of the vines give elegance and freshness, whilst the age of the vines (an average of 60 years) is responsible for its concentration.

A fresh and elegant white wine from the Dão region which shows off the potential of its old vines and granite terroir. The grapes come from Quinta da Lomba, which has exceptionally old vineyards, with some vines being almost a century old. These sites are planted predominantly with Bical, Encruzado and Malvasia, among other indigenous grape varieties of the region.

Produced from small and very old vineyards, Redoma Reserva Branco has many different varieties including: Rabigato, Códega, Donzelinho, Viosinho and Arinto.

These vineyards are planted at high altitudes, between 400 and 700m, on the right side of Douro River. The final result is an impressive wine, fresh and mineral, demonstrating concentration and complexity.

Quinta de Baixo Vinhas Velhas is the result of combining the varieties Maria Gomes and Bical from century-old vineyards with a perfect limestone terroir. Due to the high natural acidity, this vineyards give rise to wines with a pH below 3.0, which makes possible the malolactic fermentation that occurs in 1000 litres Fuders over 60 years old, from Mosel. VV represents the incredible lightness and complexity of Bairrada.

António Maria Gonçalves Faria was a mythical producer from Bairrada in the 1990s. Wines like Tonel 5 1990 or Reserva 1991 will always be remembered in Bairrada’s history. Dirk Niepoort (who once was the distributor of these wines) considers a huge privilege being able to work these magnificent vines. We will try, year after year, to produce timeless, deep wines with character, honouring the late António Maria Gonçalves Faria and his son João Pedro, currently responsible for the work in the vineyards.


This is the first edition of a wine which tries to go further ahead on the expression of the vineyard, of the place and the region where it came from. For several years we pursue the idea of making a white wine with malolactic fermentation, where we could extend the ageing period, both in barrel and stainless steel. But Douro is a hot region, even in the higher altitude vineyards and therefore in the majority of the years there was not enough acidity to do it.

The mica schist soil contributes to the minerality and freshness of this wine, the longer ageing gives it stability and the time spent in stainless steell, before bottling, integrates all the elements and makes the wine more compact and alive.

Niepoort launched the first rosé, showing that high-quality wines may also be pink in colour.

Unlike the typical rosé winemaking process, Redoma is fermented in new French oak casks after the free-run juice is obtained. The complexity is achieved through a several hours of skin contact.


The dream of producing wines in Dão began in 2012. Since then, we sought for vines, some of them very old, that would express the unique character of this region, where the highlands microclimate and the granite soils have always gave genuine wines. In Dão Rótulo first edition we obtained a fresh and light, but authentic wine.


Vertente is an appealing wine: the fruit and concentration are the two main features of the Douro wines, and the elegance is a mark of Niepoort wines. The grapes for Vertente came partially from 20 years old vineyards of Quinta de Nápoles in the Tedo Valley, and the rest from Pinhão Valley’s old vineyards. This wine is dense, complex and fresh, pleasant to drink now but also with great potential for ageing and improving with time.

Vertente BEE é um vinho que pretende enaltecer o papel das abelhas polinizadoras, que infelizmente estão a extinguir-se em muitas zonas do planeta. Fazendo parte vital do ecossistema em que vivemos, a Niepoort sente que o desafio da sua sobrevivência enquanto espécie também lhe pertence.

O Vertente BEE foi desenvolvido em parceria com o artista Louis Masai, um “street artist” britânico, envolvido em várias causas de animais em extinção e responsável pelo projeto “The Art of Beeing”, que explora através de diversas obras, a beleza, a singularidade e a importância das abelhas.

O rótulo, com um conjunto de abelhas selvagens em forma de coração, sugere que com cada garrafa de Vertente BEE se plante flores, contribuindo desta forma para a importante função das abelhas polinizadoras. 

Assim, juntamos numa gargantilha uma mistura de sementes de phacelia, trevo, flores de milho, e aneto para serem plantadas num vaso ou num jardim.  

O Vertente é produzido de forma sustentável, de acordo com o espírito que acompanha a produção dos vinhos Niepoort.

Nat Cool is naturally “cool and funky”. It represents an innovative concept initiated by Niepoort, in which various producers came together to create light and easy-to-drink wines. In the Bairrada region we have produced the Drink Me, the first Nat Cool, where we try to showcase a different and elegant side of the Baga grape variety. An incredibly light and accessible wine which just begs to be enjoyed. Welcome to the Nat Cool world!

Lagar de Baixo

The huge passion of Dirk Niepoort for Baga variety and the fantastic terroir of the Bairrada region led him to look for small parcels of Baga in very old vines, scattered throughout the Cantanhede region, over the past three years. These wines were light in color and alcoholic content, elegant and fine, soon after bottling, but with a huge ageing potential. In 2012, with the acquisition of Quinta de Baixo, it was possible to recreate the brand Lagar de Baixo with a classic profile that would dignify the nobility of Baga variety in Bairrada. Lagar de Baixo Tinto is the result of joining very old vines with younger ones: a complex and serious red wine, but with some youth and vigor.

Bioma Tinto

2010 is the first edition of this wine made entirely with grapes from our own vineyards at Quinta de Nápoles, where we practice organic viticulture, certified since 2012. Made with our younger vineyards, with 20 years old, the idea was to have less intervention during the winemaking process. The ageing process was made in old wooden big containers recovered from port wine wood. The goal was to make a pure wine without the oak character, but with elegant and firm tannins.

Redoma tinto is Niepoort’s original Douro wine, first released in 1991. It is like Douro: "extreme, with a rigorous character". Old north-facing vineyards from Quinta de Nápoles and Pinhão Valley form the basis of Redoma. Its main varieties are Tinta Amarela, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Franca.


The Poeirinho, which name reflects the old name of Baga, is like a tribute to the great Bairrada wines from the past.

The huge passion of Dirk Niepoort for Baga variety and for the fantastic terroir of the Bairrada region has made him, over the past three years, look for small parcels of Baga from very old vines, scattered in Cantanhede area. These wines were light in color and alcohol degree, elegant and fine immediately after bottling, but with a huge ageing potential. In 2012, in the first edition of Poeirinho, we have created an incredibly fresh and precise wine, that is already, in our opinion, one of the best non-fortified wines produced by Niepoort.

Gonçalves Faria

António Maria Gonçalves Faria was a mythical producer from Bairrada in the 1990s. Wines like Tonel 5 1990 or Reserva 1991 will always be remembered in Bairrada’s history. Dirk Niepoort (who once was the distributor of these wines) considers a huge privilege being able to work these magnificent vines. We will try, year after year, to produce timeless, deep wines with character, honouring the late António Maria Gonçalves Faria and his son João Pedro, currently responsible for the work in the vineyards.


Although Bairrada is the perfect terroir for Baga variety, we have at Quinta de Baixo a small parcel of Syrah planted about 20 years ago. The vineyard, with just over 1 hectare is a small passion of Dirk Niepoort. Dirk has always been a big fan of the wines of Côtes-du-Rhône, especially Cote-Rotie and Hermitage. At Quinta de Baixo, it is our intention to make a Syrah with character that expresses the fantastic potential of our calcareous-clay soils.

In 2012, the first edition was vinified in only one old barrel vinified, with minimal intervention and following the first steps of Biodynamics.


Although Bairrada is considered to be the perfect terroir for Baga, there is in Quinta de Baixo a plot of Merlot variety, with just over one hectare, planted around 20 years ago, which is a real challenge for Dirk Niepoort, who has always been passionate for the old Bordeaux Wines, the birth place of this variety. The intention is to produce a 100% Merlot, showing the fantastic potential of the calcareous-clay soils, characteristic of this region.


In September 2012, during two rainy days in the Douro Valley, which forced to stop the harvest, Dirk Niepoort went to the Dão region to see a very old, almost centenarian vineyard. This vineyard, facing east to the slopes of Serra da Estrela, carefully tended by an old farmer, was in the perfect moment to be harvested. An old vineyard in soil of granite, with mixed varieties was almost like love at first sight. After a healthy discussion, we were able to buy the grapes and harvest on that same day. With the help of our friend Álvaro de Castro, from Quinta da Pellada, the grapes were vinified in lagar (wine press). Conciso is our interpretation of a fine and elegant Dão, without heavy fruit, and that shows the full potential of an old vineyard.


Batuta was first released in 1999 with the intention of revealing an impressive yet elegant Douro wine. “Batuta”, meaning the baton used by an orchestral conductor, proved to be the perfect name.

The fruit comes from Quinta do Carril, a north-facing vineyard with more than 70 years, near Quinta de Nápoles and also from two other vineyards that are over 100 years old, planted at an altitude of 750 metres. Batuta is a perfect blend: powerful, elegant, with a superb harmony and a great ageing potential.


Charme is all about elegance and balance, achieved by taking special attention to the smallest details during the entire wine-making process. Made in traditional stone lagares with 100% grape stems, Charme’s elegance is achieved using grapes from very old vineyards in Vale de Mendiz, on the banks of the Pinhão River.

When the Poeirinho 2012 was first released, Dirk Niepoort decided to put aside 2 vats and mature the wine for a longer period. The aim was to create a Bairrada “Garrafeira”, a special reserve wine. Throughout the maturation period, the wine retained an incredible freshness and gained structure and complexity. The Poeirinho Garrafeira 2012 comes from various very old vineyard parcels, of which some are more than a century old.


The name Robustus pays tribute to the first wine that Dirk Niepoort made in 1990 with the same name and which was never released. The inspiration behind Robustus is essentially based on traditional techniques of old wood ageing to soften the tannins. Robustus is a full bodied wine, which portrays well the Douro and its vineyards. Ageing in 2.000l wood vats for 4 years, allows a powerful wine to develop, based on aromatic complexity, powerfull with welll integrated tannins and balanced acidity.


Fulfilling a dream cherished by Dirk Niepoort, Turris is a wine made with grapes from a very old vine, expressing every small detail of the Nature, of its terroir. This very ancient vine, totally untrained, lost in the heart of the Douro region, is a gift from our forefathers. South facing, in the Cima Corgo area and planted more than 130 years ago, this is one of the oldest Douro vines that we know. The wine was bottled early to maintain its freshness, minerality, youthfulness and aromatic purity, and it is expected to age very well in the bottle.

Besides being a matchless wine, each bottle is unique, since the label was individually designed by the artist João Noutel. A particularity of the magnum and double magnum bottles is that they bear the signatures of everybody working for Niepoort.

O resultado de um momento especial!


O Bastardo é uma casta que facilmente se encontra espalhada nas vinhas velhas do Douro. Também conhecida como Trousseau na região Francesa do Jura, é uma casta de ciclo curto, com maturações prematuras, normalmente utilizada para aumentar o teor de açúcar dos mostos, de uvas provenientes de zonas mais frescas. A ideia ao produzir este Bastardo, foi tentar domar o carácter rústico da casta e procurar o seu lado mais elegante e fresco. As videiras de Bastardo encontram-se espalhadas nas vinhas velhas da Quinta de Nápoles, onde toda a viticultura é biológica.

A nossa vinha de Tinta Amarela tem 30 anos, em patamares de 2 bardos e está em modo de produção biológica certificada desde 2018. É a primeira vez que a Niepoort engarrafa um 100 % Tinta Amarela.

A Tinta Amarela é uma variedade pouco querida pelos viticultores do Douro devido à sua sensibilidade a doenças e à sua pelicula muito fina. Na adega, a Tinta Amarela é a variedade com mais notas de especiarias e com um caracter mais vegetal. O momento de vindima é essencial para que haja um equilíbrio entre estes dois componentes.
