Now the company is headed by Dirk Niport - the fifth generation of the family, enjoys strong reputation among winemakers. Thanks to the coordinated teamwork, hard work and professionalism of the company under his leadership has made great strides.
In 2007, the company has completed the construction of the winery on a hillside, next to the old building. The main task for the architect to find a clever way to integrate a huge building in a lovely landscape. The site is located on a hilltop, overlooking the river and the valley. Therefore, the first thought was to make the building visible. To enter the plant in the landscape, the main part of the building is located underground, and exterior walls covered with natural stone (shale), which is a traditional material for the walls of the terraces. The concept of the plant is very minimalist: a minimum of materials, a minimum of parts. Walls, floors and ceilings of buildings constructed of architectural concrete and metal parts are made of steel. All floors are connected by an elevator. To save resources in the company tends to decrease power consumption, which becomes necessary because the temperature in the compartments for storage be maintained at 15 ° C throughout the year. From the tasting room overlooking the large patio, on the terrace - the river.
Family tradition, enthusiasm, commitment and innovative ideas of the company Niport unconditionally complement each other, providing a healthy balance between the centuries-old tradition and innovation.
