Sweet and Fortified Wines

Sweet and fortified wines are a delicious way to satisfy your sweet tooth after a meal. These wines are made by adding a distilled spirit, such as brandy, to stop the fermentation process and increase the alcohol content. This results in a wine that is higher in alcohol and residual sugar, making it sweeter and richer than other wines. Some of the most popular categories of sweet and fortified wines include port, sherry, and dessert wines.

Port wine is a sweet, red wine that is often served as a dessert wine and pairs well with cheese and chocolate. Sherry is a fortified wine that comes in various styles, from dry to sweet, and is often enjoyed as an aperitif or after-dinner drink. Dessert wines are sweet wines that are meant to be enjoyed in small portions and pair well with desserts. Some popular types of dessert wines include late-harvest wines, ice wines, and muscat wines. Whatever your preference, there is a sweet or fortified wine out there that is sure to satisfy your cravings when you shop with Vineonline.
