Henriques & Henriques 10 Years Old Verdelho

  Lack of inspiration or motivation you might think. After all, how much can one write about Madeira wine on a regular basis? But no, there’s nothing wrong with my passion and love when it comes to the wines from…

Pereira d’Oliveira 1981 Verdelho Colheita

  Colheita. When most of us bump into the term we think of Port wine and not Madeira. Fair enough considering it’s a relative newcomer for Madeira wines. Simply put it’s, in Douro, a tawny port from a single vintage…

An unknown bottle from 1898

Mystery bottles. Unknown producers. Solera? Vintage? Fake? Buying century old Madeira where the producer can’t be confirmed has its unbeatable charm. Not only does it call for the little detective in you – it also has a certain magic to…

Vinhos Barbeito: A grande finale

-There are more modern instruments, but we like this old one, Americo says when explaining for me how they measure the alcohol content in the wines. We’re standing in the laboratory of Vinhos Barbeito together with Americo Pereira who’s guiding…

Big is beautiful: presenting Madeira Wine Company

  – Please, may I hold her? There’s no doubt about our two daughter’s popularity amongst the lovely employee’s at the Blandy’s Lodge in Avendia Arriaga. Nor is there any questions concerning our own urge to visit the lodge again,…

– People are afraid, Luís says, when we’re standing in the entrance. Outside the rain is pouring down and has done so for several hours. Our taxi is delayed not only due to the weather but just as well because…

O divino – AQUI TÃO PERTO

  O divino – AQUI TÃO PERTO. Mr. Luís d’Oliveira shows me the article in December 2009’s issue of Wine – a Portuguese Wine Magazine. As close to heaven as you can get. Yesterday I was close to heaven when…

H.M. Borges Verdelho Solera 1915

H.M. Borges – ett aktat namn bland Madeira-anhängarna. Henrique Menezes Borges importerade livsmedel till ön och all vinst verksamheten genererade användes till inköp av äldre viner. När mängden inhandlat vin var modell större startade Borges 1877 sin partidista – att…

P 1840

”1840 – Generally very fine, especially Sercial and Verdelho” Bedömningen är hämtat ur Noël Cossarts verk Madeira – The Island Vineyard. Kanske inte den mest flitigt använda informationen men om man nu råkar komma över en flaska som stencilerats P…

1913 Verdelho; solera eller vintage?

1913. Utan att bli alltför högtravande är det ändå svårt undgå skänka en tanke till vad som komma skulle i Europa. Några skott i Sarajevo skulle vända upp och ner på världsordningen. Kanske då bättre skänka en tanke till mer…
