If you’re a port lover, you probably already know that it’s not served in your typical wine glass! And for those of you reading this who are wondering what port wine is, it’s a sweet, fortified red wine made in Portugal! Because it’s so rich, it’s usually enjoyed as a dessert wine, and because it’s so strong, it’s served in its own glass!
This fortified wine should be enjoyed in much smaller portions! On average, port wine glasses hold about 7 ounces and are about 6 inches tall — which is a few inches shorter than a typical red wine glass.
It’s not something you’ll find in every home bar, but if you or someone special in your life loves port, check out these fun, worthwhile investments!
