About the producer: Warre’s
Warre’s was the first British Port company established in Portugal. Founded in 1670 by two Englishmen, William Burgoyne and John Jackson, the firm gained few more partners through time, including William Warre in 1729 who will give it its name. By the end of the 18th century, Warre’s had become one of the leading Port shippers and accounted for 10% of all port shipments. Owned by the Symington Family, it is famous for its classic Vintage Ports, alongside its Quinta da Cavadinha Vintage Port, released in non-declared years, and consistently rated amongst the best in blind tasting events.

Vineyard & Winemaking
Grapes are sourced from owned estates; Quinta da Cavadinha (46 hectares), Quinta do Retiro Antigo (40 ha), and Quinta da Telhada (35 ha) but also from other vineyards, owned privately by members of the Symington family; Quinta do Alvito (35 ha) and Quinta das Netas (5 ha). Warre’s continues to make some of its Port by treading in stone ‘lagares’.
Drinking well now and will continue to do so for a number of years. Fortified red wine with almonds and figs present on the palate with hints of bittersweet chocolate.
