The history of the Kope Port House began in 1638, when Nicolau Kopke, Consul General of the Hanseatic League of Baltic states, began shipping wine to northern Europe. In 1781 a farm in the Douro was purchased, and the House began producing their own wines. The company remained in the hands of the Kopke family into the 1800s, when the great-great grandson of the founder was elevated to the title of Baron of Vilar. In 1922, the Quinta de San Luiz was purchased, an A-grade 125-hectare estate which would become the home of Kopke.

Wood and cherry aromas, a hint of resin and raisin, remarkably vibrant and fresh. Superbly nutty on the palate: walnut, cashew, hazelnut, with a delightful honey-fruit background. This is an incredible drinking experience, from one of the finest Port vintages in history.

Beautiful on its own as a winter-warmer, or with cheese, especially a creamy blue. Pairs well with savoury snacks like salted nuts or olives in brine. Best served lightly chilled.

A Colheita Port is single-vintage Port aged in wood for at least 7 years, but usually for far longer – the current batch of the 1985 was bottled in 2020, which means that this wine has been ageing in barrel for 35 years.
