A little trivia about Porto Wine:  Grapes have been grown in Portugal since antiquity. The writings of Strabo, the great geographer of ancient Greece, indicate that inhabitants of the north west of the Iberian Peninsula were already drinking wine two thousand years ago. The Romans, who arrived in Portugal in the second century BC and remained for over five hundred years, grew vines and made wine on the banks of the Douro River where Port is produced today. The period of prosperity which followed the establishment of the Kingdom of Portugal in 1143 saw wine become an important export.  (taylor.pt)
