Cockburn’s is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of port. The Company was founded by the Scottish officer Robert Cockburn in 1815.
Cockburn’s has a reputation of an innovator, where non-standard ideas are implemented along with traditional and conservative production techniques. One of the innovations is an experimental vineyard founded in 1930 to study and develop little-known or forgotten grape varieties.
The recent success of this project is the revival of the Touriga Nacional grape, marked for its highest quality. According to experts, the best port is made of this variety.
