WARRE’S

Founded in 1670, Warre’s is the oldest British Port House and has remained a family owned company thoughout it’s long history.  The backbone of Warre’s Ports are made at Quinta da Cavadinha in the Pinhâo valley, and at the historic vineyard of Quinta do Retiro Antigo in the Rio Torto valley.

Recently, the magnificent Quinta da Telhada in the far eastern stretches of the Douro has been acquired for Warre’s and provides some of its finest grapes.

The winery at Cavadinha is one of the most specialised small ‘boutique’ wineries, in the Douro with six state-of-the-art automated lagares. This winery is featured
in Hugh Johnson’s World Atlas of Wine.

TASTING REVIEWS & SCORES

Robert M Parker Jr,Wine Advocate January 1989, 92 Points

This house makes rather restrained yet rich, flavorful vintage port and a very good tawny called Nimrod. Their vintage ports seem slow to develop, and while they never quite have the voluptuous richness of a Dow, Graham, or Fonseca, they have a unique mineral-scented character that gives them their own complexity and style. The 1977 is quite powerful, very deep and intense, particularly for Warre.

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate September 2008, (90-91) Points

This is a pleasant ’77 port with dates and raisin on the slightly disjointed nose. Lighter in body than Gould-Campbell ‘77 but certainly balanced with good definition. Again sweet roasted red-berried fruits towards the finish with a touch of sloe, whilst the finish has good weight. Drink now-2010. Tasted November 2001.
