What is Port (fortified wine)?

By in Questions, The Butler Wine-Show

If you ever wondered what Port wine really is, then this is the video for you.

I suggest you explore all the varieties there are to find out for yourself what you like, but I would suggest that the best value can be found in what is called “late bottled vintage.” Watch the video to find out why that’s the case.

On the other hand, if you are like mister Cameraman and like pretty much anything, you can start off with some Ruby Port and see if you like it with some lemonade or soda, slice of lemon and ice.

I think Ruby Port goes well with cheese.

If you want to impress as well as experience a more complex wine, then buy vintage Port, let it sit for twenty years and come back like Rip Van Winkle to a very different place.
