Madeira wine is one of the most special in the world, with unique complexity and flavour. The region of Madeira has produced it for over 500 years and exported it since the 15th century. It has also played a key role and witnessed many important moments in human history. In addition, it has been an important economic engine for the region of Madeira, providing work for many vineyards and producers and maintaining the island’s wine landscape. The Madeira Wine Festival is an opportunity to honour this tradition and promote Madeira wine to the world. It takes place every year during the last week of August and the first week of September, while the grape harvest is still underway on the island.
