White Port

$22.00

Sweet Port Wine

After a short fermentation of just a few days, grape brandy is added to the wine, which stops fermentation and leaves the natural sweetness of the wine while bringing the alcohol up to 20%. The wine then ages in older French oak barrels for six months to mellow and marry the flavors of wine and brandy. This is a smooth sipping wine to be enjoyed before dinner.

Story: Winemaker Philippe and his wife Julie fell in love with fortified Muscat wines while traveling in the south of France visiting family. The light aromatic Muscat grape makes for a sweet and pleasant white wine traditionally enjoyed as an aperitif in the southwest portion of Europe, especially Portugal. Philippe wanted to make something magnificent and unique like these wonderful wines he had enjoyed so often, and began working with grape growers in New York state to get the fresh white Muscat juice. In the fall 2009, Wollersheim Winery produced the first vintage of White Port.

History: started making White Port in 2009
