Niepoort's mission is to maintain its position of "niche player", continuing to produce distinctive ports and Douro wines, combining centuries-old tradition with innovation. This combination has come to include throughout our growth wines from two other regions that have contributed to marking out the Douro - Bairrada - Dão triangle.
The most recent points of the triangle (also) "produce the goods" and occupy a place that Niepoort considered important to recover, given the potential they possess, combining the undeniable legacy of Portugal's winemaking past with the possibilities of innovation.
The importance we attach to the need to interpret soils, climates and grape varieties has led us on the path of Biodynamics, a relationship that looks to respect the "moods" of Nature, listening to nature in order to find a balance between biodiversity and the least possible intrusive intervention. In Biodynamics, we give particular attention to the interrelationship between all the people involved in a continuous demand for respect for their idiosyncrasies and appreciation of what they have and bring of best to the Niepoort family.
"Could we do any better?", asked Maria Alice of the Quinta de Baixo estate, one day. It depends. It depends on Niepoort continuing to make dreams come true, depends on the creation of the appropriate procedures and maintains the willingness to learn what characterizes us. But above all, the answer lies in the pleasure we gain from what we do.
