Cockburn’s & Co has always been a pioneer in Douro. They were one of the first to plant single varietal blocks and also invested in the remote region of Douro Superior which proved to be rather successful.
The 1970 vintage has just reach full maturity. A refined port with meaty, chocolaty and spicy notes alongside sweet cherry fruits and medicinal scents. Very complex with a great length.
Cockburn’s & Co has always been a pioneer in Douro. Founded in 1815 by Robert Cockburn, the company was one of the first to plant single varietal blocks. They also invested in the remote region of Douro Superior that has proved to be successful. Like many other they had difficulties after the Second World War and were joined by other families until the Symington Family Estates acquired all the assets of Cockburn’s in 2006, including vineyards and stocks of ageing port and helped the reputation of the estate rise again.

They own the prestigious Quinta dos Canais, a 97 hectares of vineyard that has been consistently given the top ‘A’ grade ranking by the Douro’s authorities. The wines are aged in the Cockburn’s Lodge, the largest wooden Port cellar in the historical area of Vila Nova de Gaia.
Alongside their famous Vintage ports including prestigious Quinta dos Canais, the firm produces a range of White, Ruby, Tawny, LBV and Special Reserve.
