serving port -- proper glass?

alkapal | Jul 17, 2008 11:09 PM

what is the proper glass in which to serve port?

i've recently seen it served in a sherry-size glass (filled to the rim, almost), and seem to recall years ago seeing it in a brandy snifter. i thought it needs room to "breathe" in the glass (?) so one may inhale the aromatics (?). (need help with terminology, too!)

the google search reveals different answers, and shows different size glasses.

i trust you wine experts here on chow. please educate me. thanks!
