.Warre's was the first port house to make late bottled vintage by bottling without any fining or filtration after four years in cask, before maturing for four years in bottle. Acknowledged as the finest of its type.

Deep, rich ruby in colour. On the nose bursting with lovely black fruit combined with a spicy complexity. On the palate there is underlying richness and intensity with well rounded blackberry fruit and wonderfully structured tannins which lead to a long and lingering finish.

Country Of Origin: Portugal
The firm that became Warre�s was established in 1670.

Two Englishmen, William Burgoyne and John Jackson opened offices in northern Portugal as Burgoyne & Jackson - initially a general trading company, exporting wines, olive oil and fruit, as well as importing dried cod and English woollen goods.

Over time, the company admitted new partners and its name changed accordingly; in 1718 it traded as John Clark, then in 1723 it was known as Clark & Thornton and finally in 1729, it became Messrs. Clark, Thornton & Warre, with the arrival of the first Warre in Portugal. This was William Warre, born in India (1706), where his parents and grandparents were long established members of the East India Company.

By the close of the 18th century, Warre�s had become one of the leading companies as illustrated by the total shipments of Port for 1791. In that year, 21 companies exported a little over 30,000 pipes of Port, of which Warre & Sons accounted for 2,937 pipes, i.e. 10% of the total.
