A huge range of wines and very good value. I once had to cancel which was not an issue and money was refunded within a couple of hours. Shipping to Scotland can be a bit slow and bank on 8 to 9 days from ordering.

Winemaking:
Tinto Cão is a common variety in the Douro Valley. It is known for its tannin structure and usually used in Port Wine. It is easy to work with in the vineyard, not very sensitive to vine diseases and has a long cycle. We have rehearsed a separate vinification on various occasions, not only to better understand the variety but also due to the fact it is harvested later than other varieties. Vinification was conducted in open barrels, and stems were used in some of them. A long cycle grape variety in a hot climate region has all the characteristics to produce fine Douro wines. It is the first time Niepoort bottles a single variety, Tinto Cão.
