Dirk Niepoort is one of the most significant figures in modern Portuguese wine, not just in terms of his pioneering winemaking but as a champion and benefactor of smaller, quality driven producers across the country.
Ruby Dum is a modern, youthful style of red port made from grapes grown in old vineyards in the Cima Corgo region of Douro Valley. The wine ages in large wooden casks at Niepoort cellars, in Vila Nova de Gaia for 3 years. Bright red in colour, exhibiting a very attractive aroma, with notes of ripe red fruit.
