The quality of the wines gradually improved. The wines, which were being fermented to dryness, were largely austere and very dark in colour.\u003c\/p\u003e \n\n\u003cp\u003eAlthough the first apparent evidence of fortification occurred in a monastery in Lamego in 1678, most merchants did not add brandy to the wine before the 18th century and even then it was only used in an attempt to ensure that wine arrived at its destination in good condition.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eIn 1729, the first member of the Warre family arrived in Oporto. William Warre was born in 1706 at Fort St. George in Madras in India. He became a partner in the firm and henceforth it was known as Messrs Clarke, Thornton and Warre. William Warre was the first British resident to acquire land in Vila Nova da Gaia, across the river from Oporto, later to become the centre for the port companies' lodges and administrative offices.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eDuring that time the Douro region suffered a period of over-production, which brought on a slump in the trade and a dramatic fall in prices. The Marques de Pombal, Prime Minister at the time, stepped in in 1756 to safeguard the livelihood of the Douro growers. Pombal created the Real Companhia, a virtual state monopoly, which excluded the English shippers. This action was followed by a bloody riot in the streets of Oporto known as the 'Tipplers Revolt' which was largely blamed on the British.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eDespite this revolt a series of measures were implemented to regulate the production of Port including the drawing up of a boundary around the region, restricting Port production to vineyards within it. The Real Companhia eventually lost its monopoly in 1777 when Maria I succeeded the Portuguese throne and Pombal was dismissed.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eThe wine growing region at that time was centred around Regua and did not extend much beyond PinhÆo, with the exception of Quinta do Roriz which was leased to a religious order. Interestingly, over 200 hundred years later the current owners of Warre's Port, the Symington Family, agreed to enter into a joint venture on Quinta do Roriz to market a Vintage Port and a table wine.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eThe Port trade saw another period of expansion during the second half of the 18th century, largely as a result of the development of the bottle. As the shape became more cylindrical, it became possible to cellar the bottles on their sides.\u003c\/p\u003e \n\n\u003cp\u003eThe British merchants by that time had established themselves in Oporto with a hospital, school, club and the Factory House which represented perhaps the core of the British Port trade. This building was initiated and designed by John Whitehead, whose sister Elisabeth married William Warre in 1745. Whitehead was the Consul in Oporto and one of the leading figures in the British community at that time.\u003c\/p\u003e \n\n\u003cp\u003eDuring the first part of the 19th century, Oporto was rocked by invasion and rebellion with the French marching into the city in 1809. They were repelled by British forces lead by Sir Arthur Wellesley (later Duke of Wellington) three months later. The Peninsula War continued until 1811 and during that time the Duke and his officers drank the local wine and were well supplied with Port.\u003c\/p\u003e \n\n\u003cp\u003eWilliam Warre, the nephew of the senior partner in Warre \u0026amp; Co, joined the British army in 1803 and was drafted in to support the forces in Portugal five years later. He pursued a very successful career reaching the rank of Lieutenant-General, was knighted for his outstanding service to both Britain and Portugal in 1839 and was decorated by the King of Portugal with the Orders of Torre and Espada and the order of S.Bento d'Avis. In one of his letters to his father written during the Peninsula War, he mentioned that the Duke of Wellington was a keen Port drinker and often ordered Warre's Port during the campaigns.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eThe Port trade flourished during the mid-19th century with production reaching about 100,000 pipes, of which 25% was exported to Britain. All levels of society drank the wine either young or old and often mulled. The practice of 'declaring' wines of exceptional years began at that time. The auction houses then began to trade these wines, which gained a particular character if left to age in the bottle.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eThe fungal infection Oidium was first detected in the Douro in 1848 and quickly began to have a significant impact on the quality of the wines. Worse followed in the 1870s when signs of a far more devastating disease, the parasitic Phylloxera, began to emerge. This resulted in many vineyards simply being abandoned.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eReplanting of the vineyards with American rootstock began in earnest in 1883. The Port trade then enjoyed another period of encouraging results - by that time Brazil had become an important market with sales of over 20,000 pipes. This strengthened the financial position of some shippers. One such entrepreneur was George Acheson Warre, who at the time was the wine maker at Silva \u0026amp; Cosens (Dow's Port). He bought three important properties and was perhaps one of the first Port shippers to purchase land in the Douro.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eDuring this period, Andrew James Symington was admitted into partnership in the firm of Warre \u0026amp; Co having arrived from Scotland in 1882 and worked alongside the existing members of the Warre family.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eToday, the Symington family are at the forefront of running Warre's Port House.\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2019-02-05T12:26:24+00:00","created_at":"2019-02-05T12:26:25+00:00","vendor":"Christopher Piper Wines","type":"Food, Beverages \u0026 Tobacco \u003e Beverages","tags":["Digital Goods VAT Tax","Port Wine - Fortified Wine (Spirits)"],"price":2635,"price_min":2635,"price_max":2635,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":19614936137816,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Warre's Traditional Late Bottled Vintage 2007","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":2635,"weight":1000,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":""}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/products\/A804907_cf9d0856-6c78-4c07-8b30-7a8a975ea46e.jpg?v=1549637509"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/products\/A804907_cf9d0856-6c78-4c07-8b30-7a8a975ea46e.jpg?v=1549637509","options":["Title"],"content":"\u003cp\u003eCarefully selected from the finest wines of a very good year, this port is aged in oak casks for 4 years before being bottled without fining or filtration.

Interestingly, over 200 hundred years later the current owners of Warre's Port, the Symington Family, agreed to enter into a joint venture on Quinta do Roriz to market a Vintage Port and a table wine.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eThe Port trade saw another period of expansion during the second half of the 18th century, largely as a result of the development of the bottle. As the shape became more cylindrical, it became possible to cellar the bottles on their sides.\u003c\/p\u003e \n\n\u003cp\u003eThe British merchants by that time had established themselves in Oporto with a hospital, school, club and the Factory House which represented perhaps the core of the British Port trade. This building was initiated and designed by John Whitehead, whose sister Elisabeth married William Warre in 1745. Whitehead was the Consul in Oporto and one of the leading figures in the British community at that time.\u003c\/p\u003e \n\n\u003cp\u003eDuring the first part of the 19th century, Oporto was rocked by invasion and rebellion with the French marching into the city in 1809. They were repelled by British forces lead by Sir Arthur Wellesley (later Duke of Wellington) three months later. The Peninsula War continued until 1811 and during that time the Duke and his officers drank the local wine and were well supplied with Port.\u003c\/p\u003e \n\n\u003cp\u003eWilliam Warre, the nephew of the senior partner in Warre \u0026amp; Co, joined the British army in 1803 and was drafted in to support the forces in Portugal five years later. He pursued a very successful career reaching the rank of Lieutenant-General, was knighted for his outstanding service to both Britain and Portugal in 1839 and was decorated by the King of Portugal with the Orders of Torre and Espada and the order of S.Bento d'Avis. In one of his letters to his father written during the Peninsula War, he mentioned that the Duke of Wellington was a keen Port drinker and often ordered Warre's Port during the campaigns.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eThe Port trade flourished during the mid-19th century with production reaching about 100,000 pipes, of which 25% was exported to Britain. All levels of society drank the wine either young or old and often mulled. The practice of 'declaring' wines of exceptional years began at that time. The auction houses then began to trade these wines, which gained a particular character if left to age in the bottle.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eThe fungal infection Oidium was first detected in the Douro in 1848 and quickly began to have a significant impact on the quality of the wines. Worse followed in the 1870s when signs of a far more devastating disease, the parasitic Phylloxera, began to emerge. This resulted in many vineyards simply being abandoned.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eReplanting of the vineyards with American rootstock began in earnest in 1883. The Port trade then enjoyed another period of encouraging results - by that time Brazil had become an important market with sales of over 20,000 pipes. This strengthened the financial position of some shippers. One such entrepreneur was George Acheson Warre, who at the time was the wine maker at Silva \u0026amp; Cosens (Dow's Port). He bought three important properties and was perhaps one of the first Port shippers to purchase land in the Douro.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eDuring this period, Andrew James Symington was admitted into partnership in the firm of Warre \u0026amp; Co having arrived from Scotland in 1882 and worked alongside the existing members of the Warre family.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\n\u003cp\u003eToday, the Symington family are at the forefront of running Warre's Port House.\u003c\/p\u003e"}

Budburst occurred as usual mid March and warm weather and rainfall in April produced vigorous growth. At the beginning of May dry conditions set in and there was little rainfall in eastern areas of the Douro until late August. However the vines were able to draw from the plentiful ground water reserves built up during the previous winter and bunches developed and ripened in ideal conditions. V‚raison occurred a little earlier than usual on 15th June. Mild weather in June and July was broken only by a heat wave in the second half of June. August was hot and dry, with perfectly timed rainfall on 21st August and 1st September rounding off an excellent ripening season and producing a well balanced crop.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eQuinta de Vargellas, in the Douro Superior, was the first Taylor property to start harvesting on 10th September.

Gould Campbell came to establish a reputation for the excellent quality of their Ports and their Vintage Ports in particular.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIn 1970 the firm was acquired by the Symington family who had themselves been Port producers since 1882.

Cockburn Port
From £43.86
{"id":1952782680152,"title":"Cockburn Port","handle":"cockburn-1997","description":"\u003cp\u003eToday, Cockburn's is the largest land owner in the Douro Superior, and maintains four vineyards, or Quintas - Quinta dos Canais, Quinta do Tua, Quinta do Atayde and Quinta de Val Coelho. Grapes are crushed and fermented at the Quintas before transport to the Cockburn's lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia and Santa Maria for aging, blending, bottling and shipping.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAt harvest time, Cockburn?s exercises an enormous amount of quality control over both its own vineyards and those of contracted growers. Cockburn?s Quality Control Managers are present at all vineyard sources throughout the harvest to inspect all equipment and casks (known as \"pipes\") and to monitor fermentation.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eCockburn?s Vintage Ports are made both by foot treading in traditional open lagars, and in modern temperature controlled fermenters. Cockburn?s historically has declared vintages less often than other houses, selecting only those years that fit their more elegant style.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe production of port depends on a short fermentation with maximum extraction of color and tannin through continuous pumping over or treading. Once the juice, or must, is fermented down to the proper sweetness level, grape spirit is added to stop fermentation. Cockburn?s ferments slightly longer than other port houses, creating a less sweet style that allows the fruit and tannin structure to show. This is known as \"grip\" in the port trade.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eYoung wines destined to become Fine Tawny and Ruby are transferred to Quinta Santa Maria for faster maturation in the warmer climate of the Douro, the so-called \"Douro bake.\" All others are brought down to Vila Nova de Gaia to age more slowly on the cool, moist seacoast.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e1997 was truly an excellent year in the Douro Valley. The harvest was one of the longest in living memory. At the far eastern extremities of Upper Douro, picking began before the end of August and continued until the second week of October in the cooler areas of the Cima and Baixo Corgo. The crop was small and produced grapes with wonderfully concentrated flavours, providing outstanding wines with excellent structure and an intensely fruity aroma.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eVintage Port is a blend of the finest wine lots from the finest quintas. Grapes from Cockburn's vineyards in the Villarioa Valley and from Cockburn's Quinta dos Canais Estate provided the nucleus of the blend.
