The impressive Cockburn’s cellars are the largest in the old quarter of the city, holding 6,518 seasoned oak barrels full of maturing Port, plus the equivalent of a further 10,056 barrels in larger oak vats. This priceless stock is essential for the creation of great wines, especially the famous Special Reserve. Visitors will learn that even with modern technology, there will never be an alternative to the traditional slow ageing of fine Port in well-seasoned oak.
