Have a tour of Blandy’s Madeira Wine Lodge
Today we visited the Blandy Madeira wine lodge. This is situated in the centre of Funchal a short walk down from the presidential gardens. The Blandy wine company offers three tours at different prices each offering different things. We opted for the premium tour (middle) which included a tasting, explanation of vine to wine and a visit to the museum. Most of the action takes place away from here in their winery however you do get to know a little bit of the history and the different vintages/varieties available. There are some really interesting letters from Churchill to Blandy’s detailing his gratitude for their gifts of Madeira wines.
