Warrior is the oldest mark of Port in the world, having been shipped continuously since the 1770’s. The name Warrior was branded on the casks of Warre’s finest Reserve Ports since the earliest days of the firm. The traditional style has been maintained over the years and it is today a classic full-bodied wine with wonderful richness and balance.

Warrior is drawn from Warre’s finest Tuintas in the Pinhmo and Rio Torto valleys that produce Warre’s Vintage Ports. The head winemaker, Charles Symington, will select vats of particularly rich and fruity Port to set aside for maturing in oak casks in the lodges at Vila Nova de Gaia.

Warre’s is synonymous with the history of the British in Porto. Not only did William Warre serve as British Consul in Porto, but his famous descendent (another William Warre) fought as an officer in the Peninsular War against Napoleon under the Duke of Wellington, who he also kept supplied with Port. The Symington family, 5th generation Port producers, have managed Warre’s for over 100 years and continue to drive it forwards today.
