Oporto, Portugal, 2015
This city (Porto in Portuguese) is full of charm and beauty, and, not surprisingly, is the home to port wine.
Last time we visited, we learned about port. It is generally sweet, red and consumed as a dessert wine; good with cheese and nuts.
Different than normal wines, it is fortified by adding a wine spirit, which stops fermentation. The fortification leaves residual sugar and boosts the alcohol content to about 20% (about 40% higher than typical table wines).
Today we spent most of the day just enjoying this beautiful city.
We rode old-fashioned trams.
We viewed their interesting architecture.
We walked the walk. And we ate of course.
