    Niepoort, a fine producer of Port Wine and also Douro Wines, has some unique labels on some of its Douro Reds.

    These labels featured on this Tip, Gestolen Fiets and Sarvet, are produced for Douro wines being sold exclusively in the Scandinavian market.

    Each label tells a story on its own. A story that is related to individual culture where the wine is being sold.

    I find particularly interesting the story on each label. The Sarvet label, for instance, shows some eroticism on it. :)

    Niepoort, a fine producer of Port Wine and also Douro Wines, has some unique labels on some of its Douro Reds.

    This labels tell a story on their own. A story that is related to each individual culture where the specific wine is being sold.

    I personally find this a very interesting marketing tool. The labels are really, really cool :)

    The one wine Fabelhaft is related to a German fable. Thus this Douro Red is available on the German speaking countries only.
