Celebrate history with Port Wine

September 19, 2017 |

(StatePoint) During its long and rich history, Port has earned an army of enthusiasts, who have discovered many ways to enjoy this fortified wine, from serving it with dessert to using it as a base in elegant cocktails.
Produced exclusively in the Douro Valley in the Northern provinces of Portugal, the first shipments of Port were recorded in 1678, taking its name from the coastal city of Oporto from which it is traditionally exported. To this day, Port is considered one of the oldest protected wines in the world, and this sweet, smooth wine created by adding a neutral distilled spirit to the rich red wines of the region harkens back to the tastes of the 17th century British gentry, who were Port’s first fans.

Mayor Christopher Cabaldon statement on homicides

“All of West Sacramento stands together in profound heartbreak, shocked by the vile domestic murder of three children in our community. In a small town, each of us, whether parents, neighbors, mentors, and just plain citizens, know that protecting our children is our most sacred duty, and the betrayal of that duty in the home is unfathomable and unconscionable.  Our thoughts go out to the families, friends and classmates of the young victims. Together, we grieve this loss.
