Quinta do Infantado is unusual in that they are a small estate that bottles their own ports. The brother and sister team of Joao and Catherine Roseira are famous for making ports that are a bit drier than average, but with a marvelous richness of fruit.
Negus was my drink for a stressful holiday season, when its comforting, calming sips hit the spot. However, the less taxing months of January and February mark the arrival of Seville oranges and allows one to graduate from negus, to the more grown-up Smoking Bishop. Smoking Bishop is also made with port and sugar but, instead of water, it calls for dry red wine and tasty Seville oranges replace the lemons.
