Enjoyed a couple of very entertaining hours learning about the history of Madeira making, touring the historic buildings, learning about the Blandy family business over generations, observing current production and tasting vintage Madeira. Sophia was a great guide: informative and knowledgeable. Worth a visit.

We took the vintage package tour at €20 per person and were not disappointed. Our guide, Sofia, was brilliant and the two wine tastings were fun. This is another must do Madeira experience.
