History of port began in the 11th century, when Henry of Burgundy, the legendary founder of the dynasty of Burgundy, married the illegitimate daughter of King Alfonso the Sixth. As a bride's dowry was Portukale county, where Henry was engaged in viticulture. However, the history of the world development of port began somewhat later, namely in the late 17th century, when the French king Louis 14th forbidden to export wine to England. However, the British aristocracy did not want to put up with the lack of wine, so the merchants appealed to the Portuguese, and they agreed to supply wine to Albion. The only problem was that the Portuguese wines were not suitable for long transportation. Then winemakers decided to add wine brandy, which did not allow the drink deteriorate. Unexpected taste - sweet and at the same time, strong - like the British. So port began to gain recognition around the world.
