Rolf Niepoort was the driving force and his son Dirk the creator of this project which began in 2000. This is the 10th edition of Doda, 2011 harvest. This wine was born from Rolf Niepoort’s concept, according to which “the best Portuguese wine will be the one that combines the elegance, freshness and ageing capacity of the Dão wines, with the structure and power of the Douro wines, the one that combines the fruit from the schist soils of the Douro with the pine needles and mineral notes of the granite soils of the Dão.”
Doda 2011 (known as Dado until 2004) encompasses the best of the two regions. This edition is the result of combining 60% of a blend of wine from the Douro, produced at Quinta de Nápoles from very old vines, one of which is over 120 years old, with 40% of a blend of Dão produced at Quinta da Pellada, from old vines, with the region’s characteristic varieties: Tourigo, Jaen, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz.
