Established in 1638 by Nicolau Kopke and his son Cristiano, who came to Portugal as representatives of the Hanseatic League. The Kopke house have an excellent reputation for its wines.
Picking by hand is at the optimum time, following with destemming, crushing and eventually converting into wine through a process of careful maceration. This extracts their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation.
Fermentation takes place in vats (lagares) at a controlled temperature until it reaches the right degree of sweetness (baum). Then introducing grape brandy to create the final fortified wine.
A wine of high quality, made by blending wines of different harvests to achieve the array of sensory qualities. These wines have each matured in oak casks for varied periods of time, with the average age of all the wines in the blend defining the age on the label. The resulting blend expresses the characteristics given by the ageing in wood.
