Port Wine is a natural and fortified wine, produced exclusively from grapes from the Douro Demarcated Region, in the North of Portugal about 100 km east of the city of Porto. [1] São João da Pesqueira, Régua and Pinhão are the main production centers, but some of the best vineyards are in the easternmost area. S. João da Pesqueira is the municipality with the highest production of Port wine at the national level. Although produced with Douro grapes and stored in the cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia, this alcoholic beverage became known as 'Port wine' from the second half of the seventeenth century for being exported to all over the world from this city. The 'discovery' of Port wine is controversial. One of the versions, defended by the producers of England, states that the origin dates back to the seventeenth century, when The British marketers added brandy to the wine of the Douro region to prevent it from souring. But the process that characterizes its obtaining was perhaps already known well before the beginning of trade with the English. Already at the time of the Discoveries the wine was stored in this way to save a maximum of time during the trips. The fundamental difference lies in the production area and the varieties used, which are now protected. Croft was among the first to export Port wine, followed by other English and Scottish companies. What makes port wine different from other wines, in addition to the unique climate, is the fact that the fermentation of the wine is not complete, being paraded at an early stage (two or three days after the start), by adding a neutral wine brandy (with about 77º alcohol). Thus port wine is a naturally sweet wine (since the natural sugar of grapes does not turn completely into alcohol) and stronger than the other wines (between 19 and 22º of alcohol). Fundamentally three types of Port wines are considered: White, Ruby and Tawny.
