Cockburn’s Lodge is the largest Port cellar in the historic quarter of Vila Nova de Gaia, with 6,518 casks of Port maturing under its giant roofs, and one of the very few with its own dedicated team of coopers.
Cockburn’s wines are aged in well-seasoned oak casks and vats, each individually watched and frequently tasted by a highly experienced team of winemakers and tasters, until they reach their peak of maturity.
The impressive scale of the Cockburn’s lodge makes it possible to house the large maturing stocks of Special Reserve Port, which develops its distinctive style by being kept in cask for longer than most other Reserve Ports.
The aim is to achieve the perfect balance for which Cockburn’s Special Reserve Port has become well known.”
