Description

One of the oldest Madeira wines in the world. Made from the Terrantez grape variety, this is a Madeira wine that dates back to the 1795 harvest, bottled by the Companhia Vinicola da Madeira, a renowned Madeira wine merchant from the early 18th century.

With the decline of sugar production at the end of the 16th century, the sugarcane fields began to give way to vines, giving rise to the so-called "Wine Cycle", which gained international fame and provided the rise of a new social class. With the increase in commercial treaties with England, important English merchants settled on the Island, who would end up controlling the increasingly important wine trade. The English merchants settled in Funchal from the 17th century, consolidating themselves in the markets of North America, the Antilles, and England itself. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the structure of the "city of wine overlapped the city of sugar". And on July 4, 1776, Madeira Wine is chosen for the celebration of the independence of the United States of America.
