"Everything you always wanted to know about port (but were afraid to ask)"
Fernando van Zeller Barão de Vilar
Port is a wine fortified by adding brandy during fermentation in order to stop the process and leave some sweet, unfermented grapes sugars in the wine. Port is produced exclusively in the Douro, in north Portugal, and it can be divided into three distinct categories: white, tawny and ruby with variations of style within each. The Book of Port comes from Barão de Vilar, established in 1715 and owned by the three Van Zeller cousins, Alvaro, Cristiano and Fernando, who have long been luminaries of the port business. Through ten exquisite tasting samples you discover the delights of tawny port, LBV (Late Bottled Vintage), plus rosé, white and more, ending with the exceptional 2012 vintage. A magnificent and original gift for any wine lover.
