American port wines

Posted by Craig en, Oct 25, 2011.

Having become a big fan of port wines, I am curious to know if anyone knows of an American port that's widely available?

I'm not certain how widely available they are, but you may want to keep an eye out for the Zinfandel Ports coming out of California and Oregon. I had a chance to try Monevina Terra D’Oro recently, and it was quite good.

I am a port fan myself, and typically try to stay with the traditional Port Ports.  I have had some good ones from WA/OR area.  I highly recommend Torri Morr's Syrah Port if you can find it.  Not sure on the distribution nationwide, about $40 from the winery but great!

I do not drink Port very often, but here are my recollections about Ports from California.

Ficklin used to be the biggest California Port producer.  I hadn't noticed them on store shelves, lately, but I did find them on the web.

Vincent Arroyo in Napa Valley makes a Port from Petite Sirah grapes.  I believe they only sell at the winery or by mail order.

Quady is a big producer of dessert wines, but I don't think they do Port.

Now that I think of it, I think Gallo used to make Port.  I would not be surprised if they still do.
