Already successful wine merchants ink Leith, Robert Cockburn and his brother opened an office in the Douro in 1815. The family owned the business until well into the 20th century and, indeed, their ports commanded the highest prices in London auctions in the early nineteen-hundreds. The Symington family bought Cockburn in 2006.

"Very silky already and round and a hint of walnuts. Really rich and fresh and bouncy. Quite a charmer! Not that thick and sweet. Real delicacy! Seems to have developed relatively fast. Gorgeous." Jancis Robinson
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
