Colheita - port wine type

Colheita (call YAY ta) is a kind of Tawny Port. The word means "harvest" and is made from the grapes of one year�s harvest. Colheita is aged for many years in pipes (barrels of 600 litres). The youngest Colheita Ports are bottled in their eighth year although most are aged longer. This wine is ready to be drunk when released and can be served at room temperature or cooler. In Portugal tawny wines are often served chilled.

Dalva Port

In 1933, newly arrived from Brazil, Clemente da Silva fulfilled a lifetime dream by creating a winemaking business of excellence that would lead him to overall success…

Looking for an area of investment with capital coming from business ventures in the former Portuguese colony, he considered purchasing a Port Wine company owned by his wife’s family,which was founded in 1862, under the name Corrêa Ribeiro e Filhos and carried the seal of being a long time supplier to the Royal House.

However, C da Silva instead decided to found his own company, in 1933. The name of the Port brand Dalva is made up from Clemente da Silva's name: DA siLVA.

About port wine

Port wine (also known as Vinho do Porto, Oporto, Porto, and often simply Port) is a Portuguese, fortified wine from the Douro Valley in the northern provinces of Portugal. It's typically a sweet wine, but comes as dry or semi-dry too. It is often served as a dessert wine. Wines in the style of the Portuguese product called port are produced around the world in several countries—most notably Australia, South Africa, India, Canada and the United States. However, under European Union guidelines, only the product from Portugal may be labelled as Port. In the United States, Federal law mandates that the Portuguese-made product be labeled Porto or Vinho do Porto.

Port is produced from grapes grown and processed in the Douro region. The wine produced is then fortified with the addition of a Brandy (distilled grape spirits), in order to stop the fermentation leaving residual sugar in the wine and to boost the alcohol content. The wine is then stored and aged, often in barrels stored in caves (Portuguese meaning "cellars") as is the case in Vila Nova de Gaia, before being bottled. The wine received its name, "Port," in the latter half of the 17th century from the seaport city of Porto at the mouth of the Douro River, where much of the product was brought to market or for export to other countries in Europe from the Leixões docks. The Douro valley where Port wine is produced was defined and established as a protected region, or appellation in 1756 — making it the second oldest defined and protected wine region in the world.
