Is there a special glass for port?

Serving: Port is best served in 3 oz (~75 ml) portions at 55–68ºF (13–20ºC) in dessert wine or official Port wine glasses. If you do not have dessert wine glasses, use white wine glasses or sparkling wine glasses.

What glasses are used to drink port?

The glasses used specifically to serve port wines are generally much smaller than red, white, or sparkling wine glasses. Port wine is typically a sweet wine that is served after dinner, so it is often called a dessert wine. It is usually sipped because of its intense sweetness and its high concentration of alcohol.

Why is a port served in small glasses?

Port is stronger than regular wine—clocking in at 20% ABV. A smaller glass is meant to accommodate the smaller pour you’d take. Between that higher ABV and concentrated aromatics, it makes sense to pour your port into that tiny glass. Which isn’t to say a regular, even large, wine glass wouldn’t do.
