Niepoort's experiment in fresh wines, Nat Cool, isn't just a wine style; it's a movement advocating for light, easy-to-drink wines made with minimal intervention. As their tagline suggests, these wines are guaranteed to "make any glass merry!" Hailing from Portalegre, the Alentejo's sole family-owned wine region, this particular Nat Cool is a first for Niepoort. Christened Copo Alegre, translating to "Happy Glass," this red is an uncomplicated and versatile crowd-pleaser. Destemmed grapes undergo fermentation in stainless steel vats, followed by a 12-month aging process in amphorae with minimal extraction. The resulting wine boasts a vivid, concentrated color with violet hints. The aroma is a delightful mix of cherry and blackberry with floral notes and subtle balsamic touches. On the palate, Copo Alegre delivers elegance, concentration, and freshness, culminating in a long and lingering finish.

Alicante Bouschet, Aragonês, Grand Noir, Trincadeira, and Cinsault

Niepoort

For over 180 years and six generations, Niepoort has carefully crafted a legacy driven by an unwavering passion for wine. Led by Dirk van der Niepoort, the fifth-generation visionary, the family business embraces tradition while fearlessly venturing into new projects. Dirk's captivating fascination with wine, honed through experience rather than traditional training, yields renowned red, white, and port wines that define the Niepoort winery. With a steadfast commitment to the Douro region, Dirk has not only achieved international acclaim but also realized his dream of crafting extraordinary table wines. Since 1842, the independent Niepoort family has been an esteemed presence in the port wine market. Their journey began when Franciscus Marius Niepoort founded the renowned port wine house, and it reached a milestone in 1987 when Dirk van der Niepoort acquired their own vineyards. Quinta de Nápoles, an ancient estate with historical significance dating back to 1496, was joined by Quinta do Carril. These vineyards, once neglected, required significant investments for revitalization, including complete replanting and preservation of old vines. Today, Niepoort stands as a symbol of history and tradition, with an innovative approach to winemaking.
