George Washington loved Madeira. In the 18th century, what other wine could be shipped across an ocean and still show reliably? According to historians at Mount Vernon, Washington enjoyed three glasses of the stuff after dinner.

 

Washington hasn't been our only wine-loving president. Jefferson tried his hand at growing winegrapes. He visited wineries throughout Europe. From his nearly neurotic record-keeping, we find that this former ambassador and president fell for the Rieslings of Brauneberger, though his real soft spot was for all things French.

 

Recently, presidents have celebrated domestic wines, with selections from California to the Finger Lakes being served at the White House.

 

This weekend, celebrate wine-loving presidents with unprecedented savings on wines from around the world. Save over 50% on select wines starting Thursday, February 16, at 12 noon.
