Ferreira Port House: Ferreira is one of the oldest and most prestigious Port wine producers in Portugal. Founded in 1751 by Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, the winery has a rich history and is known for its commitment to producing high-quality Ports. Late Bottled Vintage (LBV) Port: LBV Port is a style of Port wine made from a single vintage but aged longer in barrels before being bottled. LBVs are typically ready to drink upon release and offer a balance between the richness of Vintage Port and the approachability of a Ruby Port. 2017 Vintage: The 2017 vintage is known for producing high-quality Ports in Portugal's Douro Valley. The growing conditions, weather patterns, and careful vineyard management contributed to grapes with optimal ripeness and quality. Single Vintage Expression: Unlike Vintage Port, which is only produced in exceptional years, LBV Port comes from a single vintage but is aged longer before release. This allows consumers to enjoy the characteristics of a specific vintage without the need for extended bottle aging. Barrel Aging: LBV Ports, including those from Ferreira, typically undergo an extended period of aging in large wooden barrels. The aging process imparts additional complexity, allowing the wine to evolve and integrate flavors. Ready-to-Drink: LBV Ports are designed to be approachable and ready to drink upon release, making them an excellent choice for those who want a taste of a specific vintage without the patience required for Vintage Port aging. Ferreira's Commitment to Quality: Ferreira has a long-standing reputation for producing high-quality Ports, and this commitment is reflected in their entire range of wines. The winery combines traditional winemaking techniques with modern technology to craft Ports that showcase the region's terroir. Douro Valley: The grapes used to produce Port wines, including LBV, are grown in the Douro Valley in northern Portugal. The Douro is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is known for its steep terraced vineyards along the Douro River. Pairing with Food: LBV Ports are versatile when it comes to food pairings. They can be enjoyed on their own or paired with a variety of cheeses, chocolate desserts, or even hearty main courses. Limited Production: While LBV Ports are produced more frequently than Vintage Ports, they are still made in limited quantities, and the expression of each vintage is unique.
