Shop for Port Wines Online
Port wines are heavy, luscious fortified wines that are densely layered with notes of raisin, spice, nut, and fruit flavors. Perfect as an after-dinner sipper, they also pair well with sweets such as pies and tarts. Though port wines originated in the Portuguese city of Oporto in the seventeenth century, today many countries produce sweet dessert wines called port. The two main categories are Tawny Ports, which have been aged in barrels and have notes of raisin and spice, and Ruby Ports, boasting a deep red coloring and bright, fruity notes. Port wines age well and make excellent gifts for weddings or birthdays.
