Mad about Madeira continues promoting the island in a broader perspective. Here’s the last one of four photographic reports. If you like the content, I invite you to visit and like the site’s Facebook page as well. Again, it is great to have you here; thank YOU for following my attempts to put focus [...]
My main purpose with Mad about Madeira is to enthuse. To make you curious, wanting to taste something that might be new to you. Or even visit the island. And a wine site without photographies….how boring isn’t that? Please continue liking and sharing my site; for that I can’t thank YOU enough!
New feature on the site! I’ve added the possibility for readers to post a quick comment via their FB account. Easier and a great way to promote Madeira. Please continue liking and sharing my site; for that I can’t thank YOU enough!
600 photographs later, lots of new impressions, knowledge and wines tasted, Mad about Madeira have all the prerequisites to continue yet a year. Regular visits is a must and I can’t thank the producers enough for their time and generosity. Please continue liking and sharing my site; for that I can’t thank YOU enough!
Madeira wine nuts should stick together. Follow Mad about Madeira on Facebook! While there, give my other wine site a like as well, Wine Virtuosity. I’m also on Twitter, like anyone else. Let’s tweet!

Walking the Canteiro of Artur Barros e Sousa (ABSL) is such a unique experience in a wine world filled with stainless steel and impeccably cleaned floors. No sir, not here. Artur and Edmundo Olim seem to share the same belief [...]
At the very same time as I salute the dedication and handicraft by Artur and Edmundo Olim, realizing their wines wouldn’t be the same if produced in larger quantities, it is also sad knowing how many who will miss out on the wines of Artur Barros. Only a few thonsands liters of Madeira wine is [...]
Muito Velho. That is old you know. Very old. ”It’s the new name of the Reserva wines”, Carlota, Edmundo Olim’s daughter, tells me. ”They were made by my great grandfather”, she continues.
Artur and Edmundo Olim don’t know how old they are. Only that the Reserva wines are at least [...]
