Port wine in a shortcut

Famous worldwide in the twenty-first century, port wine is an exceptional blend of several grape varieties from the Haut Douro region, about 100 kilometers from the city of Porto in Portugal (which accounts for the name of this dessert wine.

During the fermentation process where the alcohol is boosted, brandy is also added to the beverage to keep some sweetness and roundness! This mixing process must be done neither too early nor too late and once this process is finished, the wine is bottled and stored in a cellar to ‘age’. The wine will hence develop opulent aromas. Port wine has become a reference in the world of wines as well: some Port wines such as Port Vintage have as much prestige as a bottle of red wine such as Burgundy or Bordeaux wine.

Since brandy is added during its manufacture, Port wine is considered as a fortified wine.
