Porto wine

There is a very famous portuguese wine that I believe you have already heard or even drank, it is Porto wine.

Port Wine is a natural and fortified wine, produced exclusively from grapes from the Douro Demarcated Region of Northern Portugal. What makes Port wine different from other wines, apart from the unique climate, is that the fermentation of the wine is not complete, being stopped at an early stage (two or three days after the start), by adding a brandy . Thus Port wine is a naturally sweet wine (since the natural sugar in grapes does not completely turn into alcohol) and stronger than other wines.

There are three types of Port wines: White, Ruby and Tawny. My favorite is Ruby, the one in the photo and it is always present in our Christmas table.

  1. I am not sure Porto Wine is the same as Port Wine . I don’t drink a lot of wine, I like a little but often don’t drink because of 2 people’s anti social behaviour due to alcohol
    However, on occasion I drink a small glass.
    As a child I recall Dad buying the family, “Plonk”, once a year from Corbans wine in Henderson West Auckland. He bought Cellarman’s Port, Sherry, and various others. Lasted for a year.
