The House of Kopke was established in 1638 by Christiano Kopke and his son, Nicolau Kopke. With a history spanning 5 centuries, Kopke is the oldest Port Wine brand in the market today. With 2000 years of history, Kopke has obtained an excellent reputation for its wines. Today, it is part of the Sogevinus Fine Wines Group and is the market leader in the high- quality Colheita category (single-harvest Tawny Ports). In 2013 Kopke celebrated 375 years of continuous production of fine Port with grapes from its famous Quinta Sao Luiz with its many gold and silver-medal winning vintages. Today it maintains as its own special charater and independent cellars as the quality “standard bearer”. It is fascinating that Colheita Port are kept in the Kopke cellar, and can be bottled upon request. Additionally, Colheita Port can be stored up and lasted for hundreds of years, before consumption.
