Uncorked: For the Love of Port

In 2006 Leah and I took a trip to Portugal, it was our first trip to Europe with a focus on visiting a wine region.  When deciding on our destination for the trip we chose Portugal for a very simple reason… we didn’t know anyone who had been there.  So there we are, lets go to Portugal and spend time in the Douro Valley learning about Portuguese wine and port, which at the time I know I had never even tasted.

What developed from this trip was not only a love and appreciation of port wine, but the beginning of our lives traveling to wine regions, meeting wine makers, and learning about the amazing world of wine.

Before our trip the Douro Valley I didn’t know the first thing about port other then that it was a “dessert” wine. The following article is a fantastic overview of port and its many varieties.
