A good vintage not declared by most shippers but some excellent single quinta Vintage Ports were produced although in tiny quantities. A note from James Symington of the Symington Port Group, which owns the well known names as W&J Graham Vintage Port, Dow Vintage Port and Warre Vintage Port, stated "The quinta [Malvedos] produced only 54 pipes when we had hoped for 130 or so. Throughout the Douro production is tiny compared to normal years. For instance in the Vale de Vilariça Cockburn’s had only 20 pipes when they usually have about 300."
One of the oldest Vintage Port houses and its origins can be traced back to 1670. The first Warre entered the business in 1729 and the first Symington in 1905. The company is a major supplier of vintage port and owns the Single Quinta estates of Quinta da Cavadinha, Quinta do Retiro Antigo and Quinta da Telhada. The house style of Warre's Port can best be described as not being as rich as other producers with their Vintage Ports having a dryness with exceptional flavour and depth.
