Port wine comes from the Douro Valley region of Portugal. There are many varieties of port, but its most popular form is a sweet red wine perfect for a post-meal digestif. Those seeking a different type of dessert wine might consider a white port, rosé port, ruby port, or tawny port.
Tradition dictates that the Port decanter should be placed on the table to the right of the host or hostess. It is then passed to the left, going clockwise around the table until it comes to rest at its starting point.
In the Navy, Port is never passed across the table or back on itself, only to the left (or port side) if you are on a ship.
