Highlights
    What to Expect
    We will start to show you the vineyards and take on visits to Madeira Wine (the famous fortifies wine) cellars. But we will also take you to taste our young still wines (white, rosé and red wines). Over an 8 hour tour we will take you to the magical and secular world of Madeira Wine and we will explain to you the unique Madeira’s terroir and its wines, highlighting the extraordinary production process. We will have many stories to tell you about this wine that has conquered the world for more than 500 years of history! During this tour you will have the opportunity to see the best of Madeira island, past the south coast to the north coast and getting to know the emblematic populations of Câmara de Lobos, São Vicente, Seixal and Porto Moniz.

    Our first stop will be at Câmara de Lobos vineyards, the main Viticulture municipality of Madeira. Then we will follow directly to a Madeira Wine producer where the original production process of the fortified wine will be revealed.

    The next stop will be on the north coast of the island in the municipality of São Vicente, the second largest county grape grower in Madeira. Can You imagine those epaldier vineyards stretching for kilometres out of sight? ... Well, here in Madeira everything is quite different ... any ideas you have about a vineyard landscape, here in Madeira things are many times the opposite!

    Lunch, Madeira Wine Tour

    Following shall be served lunch in a typical Madeiran house and harmonized with several local wines. You will be served a typical Madeiran meal using plenty of local ingredients and some very tasty traditions! Moreover it is known that generally the best wines to match local cuisine and ingredients are naturally those of the region.

    Afternoon, Madeira Wine

    After lunch we will visit part of the awesome north coast of the island, where you will be able to overlook the imposing landscape, starting by the sea, passing through the vineyards lodged at the base of the lofty slopes that give life to the Laurel forest up on the top. We will visit a modern vineyard in Porto Moniz, one of the most emblematic villages of Madeira.

    The return to Funchal will be around 17:00 arriving at city centre at 17.30. Throughout the tour, expert guide in Madeira Wine shall provide all the main information on the wine growing region, its wines and its history.
