Niepoort, the Portuguese producer of well-known Port wines, was founded in the mid-19th century when Franciscus Marius van de Niepoort of Holland moved to Portugal and became a Port negociant. Today the business is still run by the Niepoort family, which owns vineyards in the Douro Valley and has in recent decades acquired additional estates. Niepoort makes aged and non-aged Ports and is also now making well-received table wines. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that Niepoort’s “white wines are among the best in Portugal” and that the red wine known as Batuta “is one of Portugal’s most sought-after trophies.”
