Latest Douro wines from Dirk Niepoort, and his brilliant Mosel collaboration with Kettern

Written by admin on . Posted in News, Philipps Weinblog

Dirk-und-phillip-300x200 in At ProWein I caught up with Dirk Niepoort, and took a look at his Douro wines, and also a new project from the Mosel that he’s involved with: a collaboration with Philipp Kettern (from Weingut Lothar Kettern) It’s always great to taste with Dirk.

Both of the Niepoort white Redomas are made the same way, but the Reserva is a barrel selection. This is done blind, but it’s always the same vineyards that end up making the Reserva: it’s the vineyards that make the difference.

Cheers Justin!
