It was one of the first companies to plant vineyards in the remote Douro Superior, it was instrumental in resurrecting the now iconic Touriga Nacional grape variety from obscurity and it revolutionised the port trade in when it invented Special Reserve, creating a whole new category. The brand also has a tradition of humorous marketing, with many people still fondly remembering the legendary TV ads from the 70s and 80s. The acquisition was followed by a historic tasting of Cockburn's ports, going back through the decades, aimed at understanding the essence of what made Cockburn's great.
