Winery Notes:
Madeira island was discovered by the Portuguese navigator João Gonçalves Zarco in 1419 and has been part of Portugal ever since. Madeira wine is produced exclusively from grapes grown on the island (most known ones are Malvasia, Verdelho or Sercial). The grapes are grown on steep terraces all over the island, necessitating manual harvesting. The rich soil and volcanic subsoil give this wine a unique character, enhanced by the winemaking and ageing in 'estufas'. When the heating of the wine is finished, the wine in the ‘estufa’ is allowed to cool and will then be transferred into wooden casks to be stored for years to come. The wines will range from dry to rich. They are well balanced and a good accompaniment to many rich dishes and desserts . They are also an essential ingredient in classic cuisine.
