Dow's Fine Ruby is produced by a company that illustrates the long relationship uniting Portugal and the United Kingdom in their love for good port wines for over two centuries. Indeed, Dow's started exporting to England as early as 1798 and not even the Napoleonic Wars prevented the wines from arriving to British clients. Today, the company continues this long tradition with a larger offer of ports than ever. Dow's Fine Ruby is resolutely fruity and perfect for informal moments with friends or relatives. Its lack of pretension should not be mistaken for cheapness as it remains an excellent port wine.

Dow's Fine Ruby

Ruby Ports are often described as 'everyday' drinking ports, but as you would expect from a producer with Dows reputation, you get that little bit more: full, fresh and fruity and in tastings often performs better than some lesser Reserve Rubies.
