Madeira Wine Festival
Madeira wine is almost as old as Madeira itself. Exports began shortly after the island was discovered in 1419.
The magnificence and recognition of this precious Madeira product is illustrated in various episodes: William Shakespeare referred to Madeira wine in his work; the independence of the United States of America (1776) was toasted with Madeira wine; Winston Churchill savoured its taste when he was on the island. ..
The enchantment of Madeira wines lies in the fact that, even today, we can still experience its deep ethnographic richness: grape harvests, processions of harvesters, grape pressing and the entire ritual of the street festival are enthusiastically enjoyed by all who take part in the festivities!
