Quinta de São Luiz is part of the famous port house Kopke. They saw great potential in the terroir and the age-old vineyards. São Luiz is located in the heart of the Douro region on the left bank of the river between Régua and Pinhão. Due to the construction of the Bagaúste Dam in the 1970s, the water level rose to such an extent that Quinta de São Luiz lost some of its land. To solve this problem, they bought several Quintas in the region to continue their dream. All with an A status and ranging in age from 1972 to 1987. São Luiz currently manages 125 hectares of vineyards. The combination of state-of-the-art technology in the winery and the availability of its own vineyards guarantee beautiful wines.

The Quinta de São Luiz is a blend of the typical Portuguese grapes Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cão Portugal. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a constant temperature of 24 degrees. Half of the blend matures in 225 liter oak barrels. The glass drifts from the fruit, but with a controlled alcohol percentage and good freshness, which makes the wines from the Douro so beautiful. Sturdy but elegant. Blackcurrant, spicy, elegant. Ideal with red meat, game, cheese or grilled fatty fish.

FACT: For many years the tradition at Quinta de São Luiz was to paint the stone wall white. This piece of history is cherished and that is why the white wall adorns the labels of the São Luiz wines. A fusion of the past and contemporary wines.

Vineyard for 2020 Kopke Quinta de São Luiz Colheita Tinto

Kopke is the world's oldest port house. This port house was founded in 1638 by Cristiano Köpke. This port house specializes in Tawny port and in particular the old Tawny port (the so-called Colheitas). The Colheita port is lighter than a Vintage port and fits many more occasions and meals than a Vintage port. A Colheita is characterized by the brown / almond color, the smell of roasted nuts, raisins and dried fruit. The older the Colheita, the more complex it becomes. 80% of the port made at Kopke is Tawny port. This port house has Tawny port of more than 100 years old.
