(StatePoint) During its long and rich history, Port has earned an army of enthusiasts, who have discovered many ways to enjoy this fortified wine, from serving it with dessert to using it as a base in elegant cocktails.
Produced exclusively in the Douro Valley in the Northern provinces of Portugal, the first shipments of Port were recorded in 1678, taking its name from the coastal city of Oporto from which it is traditionally exported. To this day, Port is considered one of the oldest protected wines in the world, and this sweet, smooth wine created by adding a neutral distilled spirit to the rich red wines of the region harkens back to the tastes of the 17th century British gentry, who were Port’s first fans.
