Madeira: Wine Tasting Holiday
Scenic mountainous landscapes, stunning wildlife and fabulous food
Madeira is, of course, the home of Madeira wine. There are many wineries that you can visit and taste the surprising range of Madeira wines, although it is not to be compared with a tour of the vineyards of France, for instance. In Funchal, Madeira’s capital, there are opportunities for wine tasting at several wine lodges, including Blandys Wine Lodge, where you can enjoy an hour-long tour followed by an excellent value-for-money Madeira wine tasting. There is also a wine festival held in Madeira each year at the end of the summer, when there are plenty of wine-tasting events held.
