Port Wine (also known as Porto or simply Port) is a Portuguese wine. It is produced from grapes grown and processed in the Douro region in Portugal. It is typically a sweet red wine, but also comes in dry, semi-dry and white varieties. It is often served as a dessert wine.
Types of Wine Glasses | Port - Due to the sugars, high level of alcohol and intense taste of port, the port glass is finely tuned. Having a volume of 8 – 9 ounces, the shape is small and slender. This style helps to mask the overwhelming alcohol odors emitted and instead focuses the bouquet on the subtle oak, blackcurrant and pepper prevalent in good port wine.
