Wine and the 4th of July

While beer it often the refreshing beverage of choice on the 4th of July, wine is increasingly more popular as a relaxing summertime refreshment. With wine's increase in popularity come the challenge of finding a wine to serve that not only beats the heat, but pairs with typical picnic fare. There is one wine that surely mist be the choice for the 4th of July- Madeira. Madeira is the wine that was used by our founding father's to Toast the Declaration of Independence. Betsy Ross had a side table with a class of wine on it when she was sewing the flag. It was used to toast the Constitution and George Washington drank a pint of Madeira every day for dinner. It is also very convenient because Madeira cannot be harmed by the hot sun and the July heat. By the way, it is very important to drink true Madeira from the island of Madeira and not confuse it with wines that are made in America for cooking. True Madeira is heated to simulate the voyage between Europe and America when the wine was used to ballast in the boat holds, where they discovered that the intense heat improved the wine. I "VOTE" Madeira the official July 4th beverage.
