Do you know where the famous port wine Fonseca Vintage 2003 is produced? In the Upper Douro Valley, one of the most beautiful wine-growing regions in the world. The character of the port wine comes from a combination of soil, grape variety and climate. The vines are planted in stony slate soils, which give the wine a very special taste, on steep slopes overlooking the river Douro.

The best way to enjoy the Fonseca Vintage 2003 to desserts! You're gonna love this port.
