Madeira wine tour

Exclusive on Go Discover Portugal the Madeira wine tour!

Madeira has a long wine making history, dating back to the Age of Exploration when Madeira was a port for ships heading to the New World or East Indies. On the long sea voyages the wine would be exposed to excessive heat and the movement of the ships which changed the flavour of the wines. The Madeira wine producers where not aware of this until an unsold shipment was returned after the long journey back to Madeira, On opening the bottle the producers realized the wine tasted different and better than when it left and the producers changed their wine making methods to recreate the taste. Madeira wine is the only wine in the world that is heated during the wine production to accomplish this unique taste!
