The kékoportó/portugieser is an interesting type of wine even based in its name. Is it Portuguese? The German speaker, grape grower settlers brought it to our country in the 1700’s. It is grown in even today. Is it German then? Its Latin name is Orientalis Caspica, this shows that it came form the Kaszpi-sea area and got to our gardens in its zigzag ways. Not a very popular type, only grown on 1,500 hectares in Eger , Kunság and Villány. In Eger , it is crossed and smoothed with the acids and gives spice to the Kékfrankos that gives the base for the Bikavér. On the sand slopes of the Kunság it is hard to grow. Its full, own beauty can be found only in Villány because the Kékoportó is the dearest child of the Villány people. The famous awards are coming from the Bordeaux type cuvées in and abroad as well but when you walk down the line of cellars at sunset and ask a farmer what he takes home for dinner the answer is always: kékoportó. This is just like when we want to introduce our strong character, career daughter to everybody whilst we just want to keep her warm hearted little sister at home next to us to make our days nice. This warm hearted wine make even those people to be a wine liker who does not make friends so easily. This wine is leading the inexperienced taster with honest openness and rewards those who are loyal to it with newer and newer surprises. The kékoportó has thousands of faces as it matures earlier than any other red wine; it attracts you to make the Márton-day new wine and the rosé filtered from it is simply fresh caressing and its aged wine is not a short lived one in contrast to public belief; it stands the mellowing in kegs greatly as well
