Madeira is one of the world's great wines, with a history that few others can equal.
With the current worldwide resurgence in the popularity of Madeira, the time is ripe for this definitive guide to one of the world's most famous wines. Alex Liddell narrates its history, from the early settlers to present-day trade and export.
The author takes us on a tour of the vineyards around Madeira Island and describes the unique process of making and maturing Madeira. Also included are the author's tasting notes on over seventy individual vintage Madeiras, of which more than half are still available. The book concludes with names and addresses of shippers in Madeira, and specialist dealers in the U.S., Britain, and Central Europe.
