This infographic poster seeks to simplify and communicate the alchemy of Port wine production. It offers a detailed and illustrated description of the process of production of the major different types of Port wine. The design of the vineyards is used as a visual metaphor, whose ramifications are developed in different types of Port wine. The inherent aging of the grape varieties is illustrated by the gradual thickening of the vine strain. The chromatic approach is "colour smart", meeting the transformation of the color of Port wine over the years.
