How to drink Churchill Port
Port is a fabulous drink on its own or with certain food either as a mid–morning reviver, an apéritif, a dessert alternative or as the delicious digestif.
After an early morning start, a glass of Churchill's VC Reserve Port with a slice of fruit cake for elevenses is a great invigorator.
Before lunch or dinner a chilled glass of Churchill's 10 year old Dry Apéritif White Port is the perfect to whet your appetite.
If you are missing out dessert, try instead a glass of slightly chilled Churchill's 10 year old Tawny; otherwise relax afterwards with a warming glass of our Traditional Late Bottled Vintage Port. Of course, if you are with family or friends savour the pleasure of sharing a decanter of Churchill's Crusted Port or one of our older Churchill Vintage Ports.
There is nothing like a warming glass of good Port after the roast on a rainy Sunday afternoon or after dinner on a cold winter's evening. It is amazing what contentment it brings!
Port can also be an excellent accompaniment for food. Being a fortified wine it is best served with certain appetizers or desserts.
