The Co-operative is adding four new ports to its own-label drinks offer this Christmas.

The retailer says it is tapping into a "renaissance" for port, which is becoming more and more popular with its consumers.

All the wines have been produced by The Fladgate Partnership, which owns the Taylor's and Fonseca port brands.

The ports comprise a £10.99 tawny port, which has been aged in casks to give it a "nutty flavour", an £8.49 LBV port with "full berry fruit flavours and a hint of spice" as well as a Special Reserve to go with dark chocolate desserts or mature cheeses, rsp £7.49, and a "classic, full-bodied" ruby port, rsp £5.99.

Earlier this year The Fladgate Partnership bought stocks from fellow port producer Casa do Douro in a bid to keep up with growing demand for speciality ports such as aged tawnies under its own and retailer brands.
