Port became known as an Englishman’s wine quite by accident. King William III, tired of trade wars between England and France, put an embargo on shipments of French wine. The English, dismayed at losing their wine source, sent wine merchants to open negotiations with their ally, Portugal, as a supplier of wine. The Portuguese were eager for this windfall and prepared wine shipments for England. Concerned that the long voyage would spoil the wine, they added brandy to all the barrels at the dock. Although this wine was dark and astringent and referred to as “blackstrap,” business flourished in England. In pubs, the Port was served with lemon and became a popular drink. Port and lemon is still a familiar pub drink today.

Here is the line-up for the weekend:

  • Christmas at the Biltmore White Wine
  • Cupcake Chardonnay
  • Cupcake Red Velvet Blend
  • St. Christopher Glühwein
  • Penfold’s Club Tawny Port
  • Dow’s Late Bottle Vintage Port 2001
  • Old Benson Tawny Port
  • Desiree Dessert Wine



As you can see we will be tasting Glühwein! Glühwein (Glow wine in German) is a hot, spiced wine also known as mulled wine. Other Languages refer to it as Glög. Glintvein, Vin Chaud/Bru.Ibt or Spiced Wine. In essence, the drink consists of wine and spices heated before drinking.
