A Madeira Party” with Matt Stamp

Every holiday season, we love to shine a spotlight on Madeira, Matt’s favorite beverage and a primordial wine of the past. This year, we’ve got something really special—four wines produced over a century ago and kept in cask until they were bottled last year.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to taste legendary Madeira from the 1895-1905 vintages. When we had the opportunity to buy these wines directly from the producer’s stores in Madeira earlier this year, we jumped at the chance. Wines like these will likely never see the light of day again.

To mark the occasion, we’re channeling S. Weir Mitchell’s short story A Madeira Party, also published way back in 1895. “There is but one wine,” says one of his partygoers. “And his name is Madeira, of course!”

The flight:

D’Oliveiras 1899 Terrantez
D’Oliveiras 1905 Verdelho
D’Oliveiras 1904 Bual
D’Oliveiras 1895 Malvazia
Plus something younger to set our palates and minds for the occasion…

Learn the incredible history and lore of Madeira with Matt, taste incredibly century+ old wines, and revel with one of (revolutionary) America’s favorite holiday beverages.
