For nearly 100 years, the wine from the magnificent Quinta dos Canais vineyard has formed the backbone of Cockburn’s Vintages. Canais is a wine made to show off Cockburn's greatest treasure: Quinta dos Canais. This wine is made in exactly the same way as our ‘declared’ Vintage Port. ‘Declared’ Vintage Ports are made in a year when all other producers make a Vintage Port from a blend of their best properties and it is officially ‘declared’ by the whole region. In between these years, the best properties are usually so good that they deserve to be bottled independently.
