Sogevinus invited me to create a special photograph about "Kopke Colheita Port Wines".

Kopke Colheita Port Wines are renowned all over the world for their extraordinary award-winning quality. Made from a singular harvest, they are aged in wood for as long as possible and are only bottled upon commission.


Taste history with the oldest port wine house.




Concept Approach (test)





Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. 

This takes place in vats (lagares) at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. A wine of high quality, made from one single harvest. 

A Colheita wine matures in oak barrels for periods of time that can vary, but never less than 7 years. It is then bottled and sold according to the demands of the market.


An old wood oak barrel was the chosen denominator in these special aging of port wines.
