"The history of the Portuguese civilisation is closely bound with the history of wine-growing."

"In 1907/1908, the government introduced a system of official regulations for the various “designations of origin”, which established the principles protecting and governing wine production and trade, “demarcating” or delimiting the geographic areas of the various designations, in particular for the Generoso or fortified wines of the Douro region, Madeira, Carcavelos and Setúbal and the Pasto or table wines of the Vinho Verde (Green Wine), Dão, Douro and Colares regions. Two years later, the Bucelas region was also demarcated."

Very beautiful set of stamps, don't you think?

See you soon... for me it's time for some real wine tasting from my cellar :) Take care!
