Blandy's Wine Lodge, Funchal

(4.1/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
Observe Madeira winemaking practices at Blandy's Wine Lodge, where you can hear the company's stories and learn about its history. Operating since 1840, the winery ages its wines using the traditional canteiro method, involving 650 casks, tunnels, vats, changing temperatures, and varying humidity levels. Reserve one of the guided tours to see their cellars, wooden rooms, and huge barrels, and get a chance to taste some of their products. Among numerous wines at the site, you'll have the chance to purchase a golden vintage dating back to 1920 and a deep, dark-brown Madeira bouquet with spices, toffee, and vanilla from 1958. Use our Funchal tourist route planner to visit Blandy's Wine Lodge on your trip to Funchal, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
