Vinification Details

  • White Port ranges in style from intensely sweet through sweet, semi-dry, dry and extra-dry. Most White Ports are stored in stainless steel for up to 18 months to accentuate their freshness, but wood-aged versions can turn a golden colour and take on a faintly nutty dimension.

History

  • Cockburn's was founded in 1815 by Robert Cockburn, a soldier who served in Portugal during the Peninsular War. Robert was later joined in his Port business by his sons Archibald and Alexander. In 2010, Cockburn's celebrated its 195th birthday by returning to family ownership. It joined Symington Family Estates, Port producers for over 125 years, the largest vineyard owners in the Douro (940 hectares/2,330 acres) who account for 30% of all Premium Port production.

Regional Information

  • For nearly 100 years, the wine from the magnificent Quinta dos Canais vineyard has formed the backbone of Cockburn's Vintages. This jewel of the Upper Douro Valley has 261 hectares (645 acres) and its vineyard is comprised of 27% Touriga Franca and 30,5% Touriga Nacional. Cockburn's is famous for having played a leading role in the recovery of the Touriga Nacional grape variety in the 1970's.
