Portugal is the seventh largest exporter of the product worldwide, by value and the fifth by 1000 tones. So if you come to Lisbon on next may you will find an interestng thing: in restaurants you will only find portuguese wines available!
Probably Porto wine or Madeira wine are the most popular as they are used by the British Royal Family but the tradition of wines it's something inside every portuguese, just like the Oceans and fish!
Apart from Porto and Madeira you can find White, Rosé, Red, Sparkling or Moscatel. To find more about the different wines visit the Wines of Portugal website: http://www.winesofportugal.info/pagina.php?codNode=18007&market=2
Wine is always part of the meal of every family in Portugal and it is different allong the different regions of the country. Sir Cliff Richard is one of the owners of a winery. Sir Cliff has known and loved the Algarve (in the south) for over 40 years. His idea to plant a vineyard at his property Quinta do Moinho provided the genesis point for the Vida Nova range of wines. http://www.winesvidanova.com/
But the wine industry has a big ally in Portugal: The cork stoppers. Everytime you open a bottle of wine probaly you will be touching a portuguese material, since Portugal is the biggest producer of cork.

She is the second background singer of former years, who is doing the step to the front. And she is also singing for another country, than the country she was backing singer for. The other one is Cesar who sang for Bulgaria in the back and now is represeting Austria.
SuRie sang for Belgium in Vienna and Kiev. Now she is represting the UK. The difference, she was no internal selection like Cesar, she had to fight for the ticket.
In a BBC national final which seemed to had all ingredients to be a fab show, like a former eurovision winner as co host (Mans), turned into a weak edition of national selection. Weak performances and songs. SuRie was the outstanding performance on this evening and won the ticket to Lisbon.
2017 on the red carpet in Kiev Eurovision on top had the chance to speak to SuRie. At that time we told her "maybe one day you will sing and represent a country"... we didn't know it would turn reality so fast. But we are happy for her and wish all the best.
