Elevate Your Next Meal Or Celebration With Our Premium Fortified Wines

Fortified wine, also known as "port," is a type of wine that is fortified with the addition of distilled spirits, usually brandy. This process not only increases the alcohol content of the wine but also adds a unique flavour profile that distinguishes fortified wine from regular wine. Fortified wine is a popular choice for desserts, as it pairs well with rich, sweet flavours.

History Of Fortified Wine:
Fortified wine has been around for centuries, with its origins dating back to the 16th century in Portugal. The British were the first to export port wine, and it quickly became a popular drink in Europe. Today, fortified wine is produced in many countries around the world, including Spain, Italy, Australia, and the United States.

How Fortified Wine is Made:
Fortified wine is made by adding a distilled spirit, usually brandy, to wine during the fermentation process. This process stops the fermentation, leaving behind residual sugar and a higher alcohol content. The type of spirit used and the timing of its addition can affect the final flavour profile of the wine.

Popular Varieties of Fortified Wine:
Port wine is perhaps the most well-known variety of fortified wine. It comes in a range of styles, including tawny, ruby, and vintage, and pairs well with chocolate, nuts, and cheese.

Sherry is another popular type of fortified wine. It is made in the Jerez region of Spain and is available in dry or sweet varieties. Sherry pairs well with seafood, olives, and cheese.

Madeira is a fortified wine produced on the Portuguese island of Madeira. It is available in a range of styles, including dry and sweet, and pairs well with chocolate and caramel flavours.

Whether you prefer port, sherry, or madeira, there is a fortified wine to suit every palate. So the next time you're looking for a special wine to enjoy, consider a fortified wine.
