In 1636 German diplomat Nicolau Kopkë travelled with his son, Cristiano, from Hamburg to Portugal, representing the Hanseatic League. Two years later, he founded Nicolau Kopkë & Co., a shipping company which would eventually become universally recognized as the first Port House in the industry’s history. Today it is owned by the Sogevinus Group, who also own Burmester, Barros, and Calem. The house is known especially for their seemingly unlimited stocks of aged tawnies and white ports released in small quantities. This is a colheita, a Tawny Port from a single harvest aged in wood for at least seven years before being bottled (Kopke waits until the wines are ten); smooth and quite complex, this is a warm, spicy, and raisiny tawny.
