About the producer: Blandy’s Madeira

Established by John Blandy in 1811, Blandy’s is the world’s leading producer of premium Madeira wine. The Blandy family is the only family of all the original founders of the Madeira trade to still own and manage their company. In 1989 the family formed a partnership with the Symington’s, the famous Port House owners, to form the Madeira Wine Company. Today the company is run by Chris Blandy, members of the 6th and 7th generations. View our range.

Winemaking proccess

Ageing in “canteiro”:  Wines are aged for 4 years in seasoned oak casks that are stored by grape variety and vintage and gently heat up by natural warm. The casks are never 100% full, to allow a micro-oxygenation and develop the unique and concentrated character of the wine.

The “Estufagem”: Once Blandy’s Tinta Negra 3 years old wine is fortified, it is gently warmed up to 45°C over 4 months, then stabilised in wooden vats for two years. After cooling, the wines are aged for 2 years in Brazilian satinwood vats.
