FAQs

Port wine is a strong Portuguese fortified wine that has been produced since 1678. Because of its rich flavor and sweet taste, it is most often savored as a dessert wine. It is bottled and aged in the Douro region of Portugal.
As a well known dessert wine, port is traditionally enjoyed at the end of a meal, typically with a cheese plate and dried fruits as an accompaniment. It is claimed that a glass of port before bedtime will aid in sleep.
The two main styles of port wine are named after their coloring. Ruby ports have more of a fruity flavor and a reddish ruby color while tawny ports tend to be light brown with a nutty, caramel flavor. The production process is the same, but ruby ports are aged in large oak casks and tawny ports are aged in small oak barrels.
Port wine is named for Oporto, a town in the Douro region of northern Portugal where it is bottled and aged. The wine was originally known as Oporto wine and eventually just shortened to port.
