Wiese & Krohn Logo


Wiese & Krohn was founded in 1865 by two Norwegians - Theodor Wiese and Dankert Krohn - shipping initially to Scandinavia and Germany. In the century and a half since its foundation, Krohn has built up an outstanding reputation. Long renowned for the quality of their sublime Colheitas (single vintage tawnies), they produce a remarkably complete range for a small house, and each wine excels in its category. Much of the secret lies in the high quality of their vineyards - the magical combination of terroir, locality, aspect, incline and low-yielding vines. Their Quinta do Retiro Novo estate in Sarzedinho, in the Rio Torto valley (where vinification takes place), is all A grade vineyard. Indeed Krohn only work with grapes from A-graded vineyards across all of their ports, and their top wines are still trodden by foot. Since 2013 Krohn has been part of the Fladgate Partnership - alongside Taylor's, Fonseca and Croft.

A wet winter was followed by a dry spring and summer. A high rainfall before the beginning of the harvest by the end of September increase the yield. Quality was uneven but some very attractive wines have been produced

Brick red in colour with a spicy nose of dates and caramel. The palate has rich dried fruit and candied peel characters, and tremendous length. Colheitas pair well with soft cheeses such as Camembert and Brie.
