is a fortified wine from the Douro Valley in the northern provinces of Portugal. There are many types of port including ruby port, which is the most extensively produced port, LBV port, vintage port and tawny port for example.
Port is a relatively sweet wine, which also comes in dry, semi-dry and white varieties. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif, or as a dessert wine. Fortified wines that are similar in style to Port are produced all around the world – in Australia, South Africa, Canada, India, Argentina and the United States. Under EU law though, only the product from Portugal can be identified as port. Port is produced from grapes grown and processed in the demarcated Douro region, which is in northern Portugal. The wine is fortified with the addition of a brandy, which is a distilled grape spirit known as Aguardente - this added brandy stops the fermentation and leaves a quantity of residual sugar in the wine and boosts the alcohol content. After this point, the wine is then stored and aged, most often in barrels stored in cellars, before being bottled. You can find a range of port wine bottles
