No port house is run in such a personal manner as Niepoort. Responsible for this personal management style is the young and enthusiastic Dirk van der Niepoort, a sixth-generation descendant of the Dutch founders of Niepoort. The Dutch passport is still worn with pride by the current owners. The house was founded in 1842 by the Dutchman Eduard Kebe. Five years later, Franciscus, the first Van der Niepoort in the house, became his partner. When Kebe died a short time later, the port company became fully owned by Van der Niepoort. In recent years, Dirk van der Niepoort (1964) has paid a lot of attention to the quality of all ports made by the house. Among other things, several beautiful vineyards were acquired, the best guarantee for top quality fruit.
