About

Product Description:

"The Douro region of Portugal has its own tradition of the field blend, better known as the fortified wine port, predominantly made from four major grapes and a host of others. As the market for port has diminished somewhat, Douro producers began turning to still wines, and have successfully raised their level of quality over the years. Niepoort is one of the top producers. Twisted, the entry-level wine, is focused and not particularly complex but enticing and delicious." Eric Asimov, New York Times. January 12, 2017.
