An almost perfect combination of sunshine, warm summer days and cool nights, with just about enough rain to slow down the vine’s growth without making them suffer from drought have led to one of the purest expressions of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, combining perfectly ripe...

Fortified Wine Process

Not only does fortifying wine helps to preserve it, but the process also adds distinct flavours. A neutral grape spirit is added to the wine before fermentation, which kills yeast, and leaves behind a residual sugar. The result is a sweeter and stronger wine than most

Port Wine

One of the best known types of fortified wine is port. The name port wine can only be given to those produced in the Douro Valley in northern Portugal. Port wines are typically fortified with aguardente for sweetness and to boost alcohol content. The most commonly used grapes for port wine production include: Tinta Barroca, Tempranillo, Tinto Cão, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Francesa. The four main types are Ruby, Tawny, White and Rosé – ruby port is the type most commonly produced. 

At Armit Wines, we stock a number of vintage ports, which are produced with the intension of being aged. Often, vintage port is produced in stainless steel barrels before bottling, and should then be left for at least 10 years, until ‘proper’ drinking age.
