The Story

Redoma is like the Douro, with character and strong personality: a wine with great structure, fine tannins and huge persistence. Redoma is produced from several vineyards located in Cima Corgo Region. These are over 60 year old vineyards mainly north facing where we can find a typical field blend of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and Tinto Cão. At Niepoort we feel Redoma is the perfect Douro ambassador.


Wine Information

Redoma – Niepoort

Niepoort is an independent family business since 1842. Through five generation the business passed successfully from one Niepoort to the next Niepoort and in most cases older and younger generation worked side by side for a long period. The fifth generation, Eduard Dirk Niepoort is ahead of the business, since the formal retirement of Eduard Rudolph Niepoort in 2005. Dirk's passion for wines and the humble respect and curiosity for the DOURO terroir  defined the team spirit over the last two decades and is a constant inspiration and challenge to the team.
Dirk's sister, Verena Niepoort, joined Niepoort team as executive director in 2005.

The Niepoort team is spread out at several locations. The headquarters, in the center of Porto, centralises administration, logistics and communication. This is where Dirk Niepoort brings home ground-breaking ideas and plans, when returning from the many tastings and business trips.  Elisabete Oliveira, in the company since 1973, worked with 3 Niepoort generations (Edu, Rolf and Dirk) and handles together with Nininha, Alexandra and Vitor the day to day work.
In 2005 José Teles integrated the Niepoort team as General Manager and Verena Niepoort joined as executive partner. The complementary experience of both José Teles (since 1988 in the port wine sector) and Verena Niepoort (project management and information technologies since 1991) are valuable to enhance structure and processes, keeping up the good teamwork and mainting flexibility, uniqueness and the healthy balance of secular tradition versus innovation.

Redoma was the first Douro table wine from Niepoort and the first release was back in 1991. Redoma is like the Douro "extreme and with a rigorous character". Old north facing vineyards from Quinta de Napoles and Pinhão Valley are the base for Redoma. The main varieties are Tinta Amarela, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Franca.


After a severe selection, the grapes were destemmed and fermented in small capacity (maximum 7,000 litres), closed stainless steel tanks. The maceration period was between 7 to 30 days. After fermentation the wine was transferred to barrels (50% new barrels François Freres) for 18 months, where it underwent its malolactic fermentation.

1999 was a good vintage in the Douro, the weather was hot in the summers as in normal years. The result is a concentrated wine, with rigorous character. The vineyards for this wine is very old in north and east facing to maintain a certain freshness and elegance.

The Niepoort Cellars are located in Rua Serpa Pinto, Vila Nova Gaia. Surrounded by different other port wine cellars, this is the magical space where the old Niepoort wines age in old casks, bottles or demijons. Masterblender José Nogueira joined his father also named José Nogueira at the age of 14 and in September 2006 José Rodrigo Nogueira (his son) integrated the Niepoort team maintaining this very special tradition of Nogueira family generation side by by side with Niepoort generations.
