The reasons are many. But suffice it to say, Madeira is America’s wine.

And why is it America’s wine?
-on July 4th, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed by John Hancock +++ and
the union of the 13 colonies and their representatives toasted their success with Madeira.
(apparently, the 56 signatories consumed 57 bottles of wine)
-George Washington celebrated his inauguration as 1st President of these United States with Madeira
-at the signing of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the three participating countries
(France / Spain / United States), were toasted with wines from their respective countries:
the French with Champagne / the Spanish with Malaga / the United States with Madeira
