Established in 1638 by Christiano Kopke and his son, Nicolau Kopke (who came to Portugal as representatives of the Hanseatic League), the House of Kopke is the eldest Porto wine export firm. Through many generations, the Company was run by several representatives of the Kopke family, obtaining an excellent reputation for its wines, especially barrel-aged ports. Kopke bottles are easily recognisable, as they are bottled in a traditional style unique to the House and hand stencilled.
