Question: What's the difference between Port and Sherry!?
Apart from the fact that Port is made in Portugal and Sherry in Spain!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

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!.

Sherry differs from other wines because of how it is treated after fermentation!. After fermentation is complete, it is fortified with brandy!. Because the fortification takes place after fermentation, all natural sherries are dry; any sweetness is applied later!. In contrast, port wine is fortified halfway through fermentation, stopping fermentation so not all the sugars are allowed to turn into alcohol and so leaving a sweet wine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Sherry is from Jerez in Spain and is usually served cold as an aperitif!.
There is sweet (cream) medium (amontillado) or dry(seco)!.
