August 26 in Portugal will be a traditional, annual wine festival. The festival will begin on the island of Madeira, will last for a week. On the streets will place tables for tasting, will hold an exhibition of Madeira.

According to one legend, Madeira wine (Madera in Russian) appeared after a merchant sailed for too long, and barrels of wine for a long time were in the sun. At first I thought that the wine is spoiled, but when I tried — surprised delicate taste.

In our time, Madeira aged in oak barrels in the sun, sometimes turning.
