Event description

Description

Fortified wines are a throwback to an earlier time in wine history, when table wines were generally only available between harvest and the New Year. The fermentation process or spoilage bacteria were not understood, so wines would go bad in just a few months. The solution was genius. Add brandy. Nobody knew why it worked, only that it did. The examples that were exceptionally delicious are still with us in the form of Port, Madeira, Sherry, and Vin Doux Naturel. Join us for a fun time and learn a fortified wines!
