Port isn’t just for cold winter nights anymore, the delicious sweet wine is staking its claim as a summer must-have for those nights when you want something light and oh-so-refreshing. Popular in Portugal, port is one of the great summer sundowners, the trend has made its way to the rest of Europe and now KWV is bringing it to sunny SA with this delightful recipe for Tawny & Tonic using the KWV Classic Collection Cape Tawny. Check out the full recipe below.
