Crafting wine experiences
A new Douro underlined by history
For many years, the tradition at Quinta de São Luiz was to paint the stone walls white. These white walls are pieces of history that are cherished to this day and underline the Douro landscape in a unique way. Pieces of history that sustain the vines and uphold the know-how of many generations. Kopke has now decided to pay homage to this exquisite terroir by bringing back the tradition of painting the stone walls white and labelling its DOC Douro wines São Luiz. It is the merging of the past with the present that confers a unique character to these wines. Taste the history of this underlined Douro.
The wine should be stored in a cool and dry place, sheltered from light and temperature fluctuations, and the bottle should remain in a horizontal position.

- TASTING NOTES THE WINE DNA
- RECOMMENDATIONS SERVICE TEMPERATURE AND PAIRING
The winemaking process began with the total destemming and crushing of the grapes. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature between 12 and 14°C over 20 days.
A wine that engages with its aromas of tree fruit, citrus and floral notes. On the palate it is voluminous, remarkably balanced and with a distinct acidity. A fresh, elegant and greatly versatile wine.
Best served at a temperature between 10 - 12ºC. Ideal to combine with salads and fish dishes.
