Port wine also known as Vinho do Porto is a Portuguese fortified wine, produced exclusively in the Douro Valleyin the northern provinces of Portugal. When port is passed around at British meals, one tradition dictates that a diner passes the decanter to the left immediately after pouring a glass for his or her neighbour on the right; the decanter should not stop its clockwise progress around the table until it is finished. If someone is seen to have failed to follow tradition, the breach is brought to their attention by asking “Do you know the Bishop of Norwich?”; those aware of the tradition treat the question as a reminder, while those who don’t are told “He’s a terribly good chap, but he always forgets to pass the port.”
