Cockburn’s Lodge is the largest wooden Port cellar in the historic area of Vila Nova de Gaia. Holding one of the greatest collections of oak barrels and wooden vats of any Port cellar, this is where we age all our Ports and is the home of Cockburn's Special Reserve. Cockburn’s is one of the few Port producers to maintain a fully equipped and operational cooperage in Vila Nova de Gaia, with a full team of seven coopers. A highlight of the visit to Cockburn’s is the possibility offered to visitors to view the coopers at work, wielding mallets with which they disassemble barrels stave by stave for maintenance and then reassemble them.
