Drove to Azeitao to visit the Lancers Winery. Toured the winery and gardens and then tasted some 7 and 35 year old wines - really good Muscatel. They gave us each an ashtray and some little bottles of wine. Glad we got to see the winery since we had been planning on it since last summer. We were surprised to see that it was such a small winery and employed 120 people. Most of their business seems to be in making and exporting Lancers to the US.

1962 was pivotal. This is the background:
It was a year colored by the Cuban Missile Crisis, an escalating involvement in Vietnam, the Berlin Wall and the Cold War with Russia, Civil Rights issues, a nascent space program, Nelson Mandela in prison, Betty Friedan's, The Feminist Mystique, the Beatles, Rolling Stones and the death of Marilyn Monroe.
