Port Wine traditions

Over the centuries several customs and rituals have developed around the serving and enjoyment of Port. This may be partly because, for much of its history, Port was mainly consumed by the British, with their love of ceremony and tradition.

Few of these traditions are critical to the appreciation of Port. However some of them can help to create a sense of occasion that will enhance the enjoyment of this most civilised and sophisticated of wines. Others are followed for sound practical reasons.
