Extended product information
If you require further product information, including information about allergens in this wine,
Port wine is produced in the Douro valley which was defined and established as a protected region in 1756, making it the oldest defined, regulated and protected wine region in the world. Port became popular in England during the 1700's after the Methuen Treaty was signed in 1703. Merchants were allowed to import Port wine at low duty rate while war with France deprived them of French wines.
The Port region has three areas. Baixo Corgo is the western most area and the wettest in terms of rainfall. Grapes from here are used for inexpensive Ruby and Tawny Ports. Further upstream is Cima Corgo centred on the town of Pinhao. This region is hotter and drier. Grapes grown here are used for Vintage and LBV Ports. Even further upstream is the Douro Superior the hottest of all three regions. Not widely cultivated due to the accessibility of the area. Port is produced here in small quantities.
