- While several notable Scots and English families (Graham, Warre and Taylor for example) emigrated to the Douro Valley in the 18th century, others from Port importing countries did likewise, and the Niepoorts arrived from the Netherlands. Dirk Niepoort now runs the firm with a dedication and enthusiasm that has made him one of the most popular figures in the wine trade. Dirk has striven to improve the company's vintage Ports as well as producing an impressive range of table wines. His vineyards were upgraded (notably most are farmed organically, without any pesticides and herbicides) and the winery completely revamped. As for the grape crushing, Dirk is a passionate advocate of the traditional method of treading by foot to extract maximum colour and flavour.
Niepoort practice Biodynamic viticulture.
In 2003 the harvest had very hot days and also very humid days. The production was high but with small grapes that produced concentrated tannins and colour. Dried figs, apricots and dates held together by good structure and a delightful sweet finish.
