Of all the things to do in Funchal this is one of the best. Take a guided tour of Blandy's Wine Lodge and you will discover how the famous Madeira wine is made (in fact very similar to how the Spanish make Sherry). Our young female guide was very good and made our visit most enjoyable. At the end of the tour you get to taste three and five year old Madeira wines. (Tip: if you came with a flight bag only there is a Blandy's shop in departures at Madeira airport). Blandy's wines are also available from Waitrose in the UK, but it is obviously cheaper to buy at the airport. Make sure you visit Blandy's whilst in Funchal. I even got the Blandy's T-shirt!
