There are different port wines for different times and tastes. You can explore and enjoy all of them until you find your favourite.
Port wine is versatile and can go with many different kinds of food. It is most traditionally served at the end of the meal, with cheeses or dried fruits, but it can be served chilled as a delicious aperitif.
Churchill’s White Port is made in the same way as Tawny Port, but using white grapes rather than red. It can be served chilled as an aperitif.
Late Bottled Vintage is full bodied, with intense fruitiness and a vibrant red colour. These wines all vary in complexity and character but an LBV goes excellently with cheese. Or if you are a chocolate lover it goes excellently with a sweet dessert, such as chocolate tart, mousse or cheesecake.”
Meanwhile a Tawny Port offers a nutty aroma that goes well with a pecorino cheese, or with dessert it goes well with apple crumble, pecan pie or crème brûlée.
White Port is made in the same way as ruby Port, but using white grapes rather than red. It can be served chilled as an aperitif, and goes excellently with olives as a summer drink.
So whether you choose before or after the meal to serve your port, we think it adds something extra at any time, and that includes while creating your meal.
