Port first became popular when the English were at war with France and therefore couldn’t drink French wines. The English went in search of a new location to set up vineyards and the Duoro Valley in Portugal proved to be quite suitable. The vineyards are laid out along very steep hills, terraced to provide footing for the vines.

In the seafaring days when this occurred, something had to be done to wine to allow it to survive the long ocean journeys. The addition of brandy (grape spirits) allowed the wine to last longer and to be more resistant to temperature changes. Wines altered in this way are called “fortified wines.” Discover the unparalleled essence of our Lynfred Ruby Reserve, a testament to the artistry of winemaking. Crafted from a harmonious blend of Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and Sangiovese wines, with grapes sourced from the sun-drenched vineyards of Fresno, California, this exceptional port is fortified with grape spirits. Meticulously blended from multiple vintages, our Ruby Reserve embodies the epitome of refinement. Through a patient maturation process in American oak barrels, this superb dessert wine achieves a symphony of flavors and aromas that captivate the senses.
