The Poeirinho, which name reflects the old name of Baga, is like a tribute to the great Bairrada wines from the past.
The huge passion of Dirk Niepoort for Baga variety and for the fantastic terroir of the Bairrada region has made him, over the past three years, look for small parcels of Baga from very old vines, scattered in Cantanhede area. These wines were light in color and alcohol degree, elegant and fine immediately after bottling, but with a huge ageing potential. In 2012, in the first edition of Poeirinho, we have created an incredibly fresh and precise wine, that is already, in our opinion, one of the best non-fortified wines produced by Niepoort.
