When you think about celebrating the Fourth of July, you probably think about fireworks, burgers, hot dogs, and beer. Actually, wine—and Madeira wine in particular—played a significant role in the reason that we celebrate Independence Day in the first place.
When our Founding Fathers celebrated signing the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, they celebrated by toasting with—you guessed it—Madeira wine. A fortified wine made in the Portuguese Madeira islands off of the African coast, Madeira also was reputed to be a favorite of George Washington; some historical accounts say he drank some with dinner every single night. Therefore, if you want a historical twist on this year’s Fourth of July, uncork a bottle of wine.
You do not just have to choose Madeira. At Lincoln Road Package Store, we offer hundreds of different bottles of wine.
Here are a few suggestions (in addition to Madeira) to make your Independence Day bash a successful one:
