The First Port In Space? Quevedo, Of Course!
Some months ago, I heard that for Mário Ferreira, the man that transports most people up and down the Douro RIver (he owns Douro Azul cruises), The World is not enough. Therefore, he decided to embark in a spacecraft to travel in space, and he’ll be the first Portuguese doing it; just like a modern Gil Eanes!
I read yesterday that, differently from the Portuguese explorers, he is not planning to leave a stone evidence that he has been there. He has just had a much better idea: bring to the space a bottle of Port Wine, that first to arrive to such heights.
Here is the challenge: make Quevedo the so called flying wine. In facto, there is a number of reasons that makes logical the choice of Quevedo as the highest Port ever. I could speak about the family, the Quintas, the terroir, the taste, the nose, the colour, the perfume… I could write about all that, but I’d be just inventing excuses.
