    Kopke, established in 1638 by Cristiano Köpke in Oporto, stands as one of the oldest Port wine houses globally. This Portuguese winery boasts a rich heritage, crafting a range of exceptional Port wines that reflect centuries of tradition and expertise.

    Kopke produces various types of Port wines, each with its unique characteristics. The esteemed Vintage Ports, made from grapes of outstanding years, undergo relatively short bottle aging, embodying the pinnacle of quality. Colheita Ports, on the other hand, are Tawny Ports aged for an extended period in wooden casks, offering complexity and nutty, caramel notes. Tawny Ports, renowned for their mellow character, develop a tawny hue and showcase flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices through prolonged cask aging.

    In addition to its red Ports, Kopke produces White Ports, made from white grape varieties and available in both dry and sweet styles, often served chilled as a refreshing aperitif.

    Kopke's commitment to traditional winemaking methods is evident in its Vila Nova de Gaia cellars, where the cool and damp conditions contribute to the slow and steady maturation of its wines. The winery, part of the Sogevinus Fine Wines group, emphasizes both heritage and adaptability, combining age-old techniques with modern practices to ensure consistent quality.

    Exploring Kopke's Port wines provides not only a taste of the Douro Valley's terroir but also a journey through centuries of winemaking craftsmanship. Whether savoring a Vintage Port's intensity, enjoying the nuanced Tawny Ports, or experiencing the unique character of Colheita Ports, Kopke's offerings capture the essence of Portugal's winemaking legacy.
