Port: Main Image

True Port comes only from the Douro river region of Portugal. Produced from many different varietals, this wine is fortified with brandy resulting in a higher-alcohol (typically 19 to 21%) sweet dessert wine. Port style wines are also produced in the New World, typically with varietals common to such regions.
