Fortified wine is a wine that is made by the addition of a neutral spirit (usually grape-derived, colourless spirit, neutral in flavour and odour) to a base wine – that is, fermented, partially fermented or unfermented grape juice - this process itself is called "fortification”. In other words, fortification can happen before, during or after fermentation.
Before or after a meal, a glass of fortified wine is always a special treat. As there is a great range of fortified wines out there, it is almost certain you will find at least one or a couple of them, absolutely matching your preferences, whether you are looking for an aperitif or a digestif, or just the enjoyment of this exciting and rather special wine styles.
