Wow! That's a lot of dice! OwO And a great idea for a DND session to drink at least one glass of wine! I'll start doing that when I get a bit older and I become a DM. xD

Porto is not your common wine, it is fancyness and delicious in a bottle. x3

Porto (or other 'liquor wines' (I think its the word for this) like Xeres) are great for the holidays, with some fine chocolate. x3

Also, there is also white porto, a bit different taste.

How much do they run a bottle? I might give it a try

I guess you ask how much about it is? About like common wine, a bit higher due to the process, aging and all - there is a few categories.

Smaller bottles about 10-15$can, +/-25$ for common sized, about. And more for the best of the best. White one seems more cheap, probably because its less popular.

The porto seems to be something quite 'british', due to the old (and never really enforced much) portugese-englaish alliance...

Orphen - It's called 'porto' if it is real, and made in Portugal. Porto style wine made elsewhere is called 'port'. Commonly both types are called port in conversation. It is a fortified wine, so alcohol is 18-20%. They are slower drinking than say a bordeaux.
The standard kind is ruby port, which is dark purple red. It is sweet and slightly thicker feeling in the mouth normal red wines. A decent bottle can be $16-30 for this. Goes good with bitter chocolate, buts, and stilton cheese.
My personal favorite kind of ports are 'tawny' style ports, which are tawny (red brown) in color. They are usually aged 10, 20, or 30 years in barrel before being bottled. Good ones have a wonderful warm complex flavor, not quite as sweet as rubies, with lingering aftertaste of nuts. Goes well with a lot of things. Can get bottles for $20-45 that are 10-20 year.
The most expensive and fanciest are the vintage ports, which have sediment and are aged in bottle (usually best at least over 10 years). Very rich, sweet, and complex, sometimes hints of raisin. These are quite expensive, though, and not worth buying unless you are a connosieur IMO because many of the standard ruby offerings are quite good.
Finally, don't go grocery store brand. For non-vintage, good brands for are: Taylor Fladgate, Dow's, Graham's, Fonseca, Ferreira, Kopke, Warres.

To be fair, the last few games we've had single malt scotch.
