    ... through to sweet. They use Verdelho to only make the semi dry style. It's still fortified, and a little sweet, but mainly dry and acidic. The really good Madeira is made from a red grape called Tinta Negra, and I think I'll be planting a few hundred of these vines when I get back home. Was interesting to learn how they age the wine in both barrels and also artificially by heating the wine in tanks. Heating it for 3 months at a warm temperature ...

    ... 8217;s traditional!

    Our lodging for the night was at Hotel Colmo in a village
    named Santana, one of the highest altitude towns on the island at over 600

    anymore, but they’re very cute and mostly used as ...

    ... see?..." Jacques said with a grin in his face, and a twinkle in his eye. I truly looked again, and saw exactly what he was telling me. I am always learning so many things about the sea from Jacques, and how to tell its affects, and what it may do.... I have always loved this part of my Milena adventure with him, and Marina. Amazing. I ordered our favorite bottle of Portuguese wine, and we saluted a wonderfully wet, yet still very fun day. Our dinners were fabulous. Jacques ...
