The oldest Port Wine House
Quinta de São Luiz, located in Tabuaço - Adorigo (140km away from Porto/Vila Nova de Gaia), is the
place where a special set of vineyards are nurtured, where the winemaking process occurs, where Kopke
wines are crafted.
São Luiz bears, these days, the end result of several acquisitions of other properties situated in the same area: Quinta da Mesquita (1972), Quinta da Lobata (1974), Quinta da Alegria (1982) and Quinta da Galeira (1987). The property has a total of 125 hectares, 94 of which are carefully tendered vineyards, many very old.
It's a Quinta that embodies centuries of Kopke´s history and passion and is located in Tabuaço on the left bank of the Douro River between Régua and Pinhão, at the heart of the Douro Region.
TASTE HISTORY WITH THE OLDEST PORT WINE HOUSE
If time is marked by special moments, Kopke's history is written in exceptional years. Years
that are worth keeping, so they can be relived and celebrated any time. When we retrieve years
from Kopke's history, we are creating more history: the age on the label of this Kopke Port
wine is the average age of all the wines in the blend.
Kopke Colheita 2003 White Port Wine reveals an intense golden-yellow color. On the nose, it is discreet and delicate, laden with notes of dried fruit, cherries in syrup and subtle molasses. Vivid and rich in the mouth, it shows excellent structure and assertive vigor. Its elegance lingers into an unctuous and distinct finish.
