The Fladgate Partnership has bought single-harvest tawny Port specialist Wiese & Krohn for an undisclosed fee.

The deal includes Wiese & Krohn's Quinta do Retiro Novo vineyard in the Rio Torto valley and strengthens Fladgate's portfolio of tawny aged Ports, the company's CEO, Adrian Bridge, said yesterday (25 June). “It is our view that the future of quality Port is very strong,” Bridge said. 

“The Fladgate Partnership is already responsible for over one-third of all quality Ports produced by the industry, placing it in a uniquely favourable position to benefit from future growth in demand for premium Port.”

Wiese & Krohn was founded in 1865 by two Norwegian entrepreneurs and has Port stocks of about 5m litres, according to its website.
