Port is a fortified wine, arguably the greatest of all fortified wines, one of the truly iconic wines of the world alongside the likes of Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne, to name a few. Fortified wines are made by adding a proportion of grape spirit or, brandy, to interrupt the fermentation process, hence keeping the residual sugar of the grape. Port is produced exclusively in the mountainous vineyards of the Douro Valley in northern Portugal, the first vineyard area in the world to be legally demarcated in 1756. In a class of its own, Port owes its distinctive character to a unique association of climate, soil, grape varieties, and winemaking expertise that cannot be replicated elsewhere. Port has a variety of different styles, each with its own characteristics flavors, ideal serving suggestions, and food pairings.
