Wine Tasting Madeira

The Miracle of Fajã dos Padres

In 1595, a group of Jesuit priests were given a small stretch of land tucked under a towering cliff on Madeira's south coast. Here they produced a heavenly fortified malmsey wine that changed the island’s viticulture forever.

Today you can discover this slice of Eden for yourself. Journey down the cliffs in a cable car, threading through organic gardens. Savour this historic Madeiran wine, alongside a feast of local specialities such as Bolo de Caco, battered black scabbardfish and fried banana.
