Overview
More
PICOWINES, located in the village of Madalena, started production in 1961 with 51 members. Initially, it was built with the intention of vinifying a white liqueur wine, however, it was also necessary to proceed with the vinification of American grape varieties, from which the well-known "wine of smell" was obtained, introduced in the region after the devastation of powdery mildew and phylloxera. Currently, the Cooperative has about 246 associates in active and an average production of half a million liters subdivided in the most varied wines.

We tasted three wines (our choice, more were available) for around 3euros per person. This included the tour, which was a nice introduction to Pico’s wine production. They make a unique white wine based on grapes grown on the black volcanic rock.
