Wine, a traditional Portuguese drink, is drank a lot after dinners and at many social events. They have white wines, red wines, and green wines. Green meaning not the color, but the fact that this wine needs to be drunk "young". The term they use is called "Vinho Verde, which is very popular in the Minho province. Port wine is fortified wine of distinct flavor produced in Douro normally served with desserts. Vinho da Madeira, is a fine regional wine produced in Madeira similar to that of a sherry wine, which is mainly used to cook. The flavor is so distinct, because of the distillation of grape wastes which is made in a variety of brandies, called aguardente, which literally means, "burning water".
