“Dear Karen, can Port be white instead of red?” — Milo J. (Trenton, New Jersey)
Milo, yes. White Port exists although it represents only a small fraction of the total production of Port. White Port is not expensive and it’s not very complex. But it’s absolutely delicious drunk in the Portuguese way: mixed with tonic water and a twist of lime, on the rocks. In the Douro in summer, you can count on this refresher appearing every night around five, when everyone needs the Portuguese equivalent of a gin and tonic. White Port is made from the Douro grapes códega, gouveio, malvasia fina, rabigato, and viosinho.
