Kopke Quinta Sáo Luiz Vintage Port 1979


Kopke was established in 1638 by Christiano Kopke and his son, Nicolau Kopke. The company was sold to the Bohane family, by the end of the 19th century, who tried to run it from London. The distance and the two World Wars disabled the control of the Company and they decided to sell it. Quinta de S. Luiz was acquired by Kopke in 1922. In 1953 the Barros family bought the House of Kopke. In June 2006 it was sold and became a part of the SOGEVINUS Group.

I bought this 750 ml bottle at 20% at a German ebay shop at the price of 59 Euro.
