Winemaker's Notes

#98 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

Vertente was first created in 2000 with the goal of showing a different approach in niepoort douro wines: more attainable while preserving the quality and character of Niepoort (the portuguese word Vertente means line or style). Vertente was sourced from vineyards at Quinta de Nápoles and from old vineyards in the Pinhão Valley.
