Video: Cockburn’s Port Bicentenary Tasting

Here’s a film from the recent Cockburn’s Port Bicentenary tasting, held in London. It involved a range of Ports from Cockburn’s glory days to the present day, including a couple of rare pre-phylloxera bottles. The Symingtons purchased Cockburn’s in 2006 and their aim is to restore this Port house – which for a long time produced the most expensive and sought after Vintage Ports of all – to its former glories. A full write up, including notes on all the wines, can be found here. Because of the rarity of these wines, a tasting of this scale and depth will never happen again. It was an honour to be part of it.
