Fortified wine is for life, not just for Christmas. There is something about winter though isn’t there? It just makes you want to sit in a leather arm-chair, next to a roaring fire (don’t worry it’s in a fire place, it’s not just running lose through your study) sipping on a perfectly aged vintage port, our Croft’s 1994 , for example. Perhaps, coming in from the snow and warming yourself with a sweet sherry or madeira. These are legitimate and lovely vignettes. They are not, however, the only images. Crank up those Bryan Adams’ playlists because fortifieds are turning into the “boys of summer.” Whether it’s white port kicking in the door of cocktail bars or a Fino sherry, like Tio Pepe, making an appearance at your picnic. It’s becoming clear fortifieds are fit for all seasons.

Is this page a bit too expansive? To help narrow your search, you can use our 'Refine By' tools to either select a particular grape or filter our fortified wine selection by country, price and the wine's characteristics.

Our Fortified wines can be delivered anywhere in the UK. In fact, like the rest of our online range, if you order before 2pm, your parcel will be despatched the very same day.
