Kopke is the oldest port house in the world and boasts an impressive collection of aged colheita ports.
In 1638 the German diplomat Cristiano Kopke founded the Douro wine shipping company that became universally recognized as the first Port house in Port wine history. In 2011 Porto Kopke will celebrate 373 years of continuous production of fine porto with grapes from its famous Quinta São Luiz with its many gold-medal winning vintages. However, it wasn’t until 1675 that a shipment to Holland was first called “Porto” and in 1678 that the Oporto customs office registered its first shipment of Porto to England.
The hand stenciled Kopke Port bottles express the traditional artisan quality and nostalgic appeal long associated with the enjoyment of the finest ports.
