What Is Port Wine?
Produced exclusively in Douro Valley, port wine is a sweet fortified wine that has been produced in the area since the 12th century. Today, the traditional wine is preserved on the UNESCO World Heritage Site and exported all around the world. Port wine is typically a red dessert wine, but other varieties to look out for include tawny ports (wood-aged red port), rose port, and white port, which is a popular ingredient in local cocktails.
