“Ripe, intense, dry fruit-flavoured ruby Port that has depth of fruit and well-integrated spirit. A great, everyday drinking Port.”

The Ruby Port ages an average of three years in large wooden casks at Niepoort cellars, in Vila Nova de Gaia. The grapes come from old vineyards in Cima Corgo region of Douro Valley. Niepoort’s Ruby is fresh, young and fruity. An expressive Port with great character. Ruby keeps well for several years, although the wine will not improve with age. No decanting is necessary since the wine contains no sediment.

The Niepoort family were Port shippers of Dutch origin that have been making Port in the Douro Valley since 1842. It is a relatively small Port house but with a big reputation! Despite being the second smallest shippers in the trade, they are second to none in quality.

Originally, the company used to buy its grapes from small growers, but since the end of the 80s Niepoort has invested in their own Quintas (vineyards). This is largely thanks to its 5th generation brother and sister team,
