Madeira was America's first wine due to the colonies being such an integral part of the trans-Atlantic sea trades. Ships would show up with their holds full of it, and it became the preferred drink of Americans who didn't have access to fine European wines. The signing of the Declaration was toasted with Madeira by the founders.
