Dirk Niepoort's great passion for the Baga grape variety and the fantastic terroir of the Bairrada region led him to look for small parcels of Baga in very old vines, scattered throughout the Cantanhede region. These wines were light in colour and alcoholic content, elegant and fine, soon after bottling, but with a huge ageing potential.
With the acquisition of the Quinta de Baixo in 2012, it became possible to recreate the Lagar de Baixo brand, moving towards a classically-styled wine which highlights the nobility of Baga grown in Bairrada.
This red Lagar de Baixo is the result of a combination of very old vines and younger vines: complex, serious, but with some youth and grip.
