Portugal - the bonus round

Can anyone identify the location below and tell me why it's culturally important to Americans of my generation? (Hint - you might need to be "of a certain age," probably about 55 or older, to know).

I cheated and used the Google...    Didn't ring a bell, until I saw the Animal House reference.

1) Location - Vila Real, Portugal

2) Cultural importance - It was popular with many people "of a certain age," and caused headaches.

Well yeah, it's the Mateus Palace in Villa Real, Portugal, and is most famous for its appearance on the label of countless bottles of Mateus wine...



I'm still waiting for a correct response (or even an incorrect response if it's entertaining) about its "cultural importance."

It is where  Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead wrote their album "Blues for Allah" in 1975
