Port wine (also known as vinho do Porto, Porto and usually simply port) is a Portuguese fortified wine produced with distilled grape spirits exclusively in the Douro Valley, in the northern provinces of Portugal. Port Wine comes in different styles like Tawny, Ruby, White, Vintage and many others, and can be taken as an aperitif or at the end of the meal (with or without desert). Madeira is a fortified wine made on the Portuguese Madeira Islands, off the coast of Africa. Madeira is produced in a variety of styles ranging from dry wines which can be consumed on their own as an aperitif to sweet wines usually consumed with dessert. Madeira is a very robust wine that can be quite long lived even after being opened. Moscatel is a particularly aromatic grape variety, with citrus, flowery, ‘grapey’ flavours. It ripens to high sugar levels and is ideal for making sweet, fortified wines. Two regions of Portugal are famous for sweet, fortified Moscatel: the Douro and the Peninsula of Setúbal, across the River Tagus from the city of Lisbon.
