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.
