For 350 years Warre’s has been a pioneer in the Port trade, from advances in the winery to viticultural research. It was one of the first Port houses to build a lodge in Vila Nova de Gaia in the 18th century, where – to this day - its wines age undisturbed until it’s time for bottling.
This pioneering spirit, combined with a deep respect for heritage and tradition, form a unique combination that places Warre’s firmly at the heart of the history of the Port trade as it celebrates its 350th anniversary.
Warre’s is synonymous with the history of the British in Porto. Not only did William Warre serve as British Consul in Porto, but his famous descendent (another William Warre) fought as an officer in the Peninsular War against Napoleon under the Duke of Wellington, who he also kept supplied with Port. The Symington family, 5th generation Port producers, have managed Warre’s for over 100 years and continue to drive it forwards today.
To celebrate this historic milestone, Warre’s is launching special editions of some of its most iconic wines. For further information, click here.
