Barros was founded relatively recently, in 1913, by Manoel de Almeida in the Port hub of Vila Nova de Gaia. The grapes for their port come from the vineyards of Quinta de São Luíz in the Douro, before being overseen throughout production by Chief Winemaker Carlos Alves. Considered to be some of the most representative of the Douro region, Barros’ vineyards also produce DOC Douro wines, dry wines described as being ‘fresh, soft and full of harmonious elegance’.
Barros produces a huge range of high-quality ports from some of Oporto’s oldest surviving cellars, and much of the prestige they now enjoy as a port producer is due to their Colheitas. Old Tawny ports harvested in a single year and aged in casks for a minimum of seven years, their Colheitas form the backbone of Barros’ success today. Although seven years’ ageing in wood is the mandatory minimum, the company keeps ageing their ports in these casks until their release on the market, bottling them to order. While this does result in a much larger ‘Angels’ Share’, the amount of wine lost to evaporation over time, the end result of intense, outstanding wines makes it a small price to pay.

For this American critic, this wine is "distinct, revealing powerful notes of smoke and spices in a refined finish." Recommended by the critic, this wine is ready to drink now.

Barros Port, 2005
Vintage Port (includes Original Barros Box as pictured)
The Barros 2005 vintage port has a very solid, vivid crimson colour and a nose that is rather spirity at first, with a fresh, almost herbal edge to bright raspberry and vinous fruit, in a style that immediately suggests this is a lighter, more fresh style of Port. On the palate there is plenty of sweetness, with cassis and ripe, sweet liquidised cherry, but also a touch of raisin and date-like fruit. A certain silky, vanilla and thick plum underpinning emerges into the finish, but so does some quite grippy tannin and again a slightly spiritous edge in a wine that perhaps will become a little more harmonious with time in bottle. …

Barros Port, 1996
Decanter Gold Award Winner 2021
Vivid golden colour. Rich and elegant nose, combining the dried fruits aromas with the aromatic wood notes. Soft and silky in the taste, full with ripe figs and sweet flavours. A sensation of depth, in an elegant and distinctive style. Perfect and overwhelming finish.
Colheita, or single harvest ports, are aged in the barrel. Contrast this with vintage ports which are aged in the bottle and only have a short drinking window after opening. Colheita ports have had air working on them through the cask during all the years of aging, giving them a open-life of a month or longer. Lighter and more delicate than vintage ports, …

Barros Port, 1983
Vintage Port - in own presentation box
The Barros 1983 Vintage Port is a beautifully mature port ready for drinking now.
The Barros 1983 Vintage Port is a ruby coloured port wine with some tawny at the edges. On the nose it reveals an intense aroma with notes of wild berries, chocolate and figs. A traditional style of port, a little drier than most, it is full-bodied port with some heat from the alcohol making it a little angular. However, the tannins are soft and the wine has a long finish. Very good. 89/100 VWP tasting.

Barros Port, 1970
The 1970 Barros Vintage still has an incredible colour, light brown with some shine. The nose is probably the biggest surprise with pleasant tones of dried fruits, figs, raisins, plums, apples and nuts with honey. You can remember a great cognac with oriental spices. It has a silky and smooth flavour and elegant finish.
