The term “Port” refers to a specific style of wine made in Portugal. However, many Missouri wineries offer products made in a similar style. These sweet, fortified, dessert wines are often made using Norton, the Missouri state grape. Brandy (distilled wine) is added to the already fermenting grape juice. The high alcohol content of the brandy halts the fermentation process, resulting in a product that is both sweet and high in alcohol content.
