Barros Ruby Port was produced using the traditional port method. The grapes were destemmed and crushed, and they underwent careful skin maceration to obtain the richness, body, and fruitiness needed for a Ruby Port. Fermentation occurred in 'Lagares' and vats with constant pump-overs during fermentation. Temperatures were controlled and maintained at between 28 to 30°C, until the desired Baumé was reached. At this moment, grape brandy was added, known as the ‘benefit’, resulting in a naturally sweet wine.

The vines are grown on terraces cut into the steep hillsides of the Douro Valley; they are planted along the terraces of the greatest slopes, which translates as "vertically planted vines". The vineyard soils are schist greywacke ante-Ordovician, with some granitic formations. This soil is rich in nutrients and has useful water retention properties. Traditionally, the vines in the region are grown low, close to the ground. The single or double Guyot and unilateral and bilateral cordons are the methods most frequently used for training the vines. Trellises are not permitted for Port Wine grapes. The grapes are manually harvested once they have reached the optimum maturity according to the variety.
